India and the United States are engaged in a trade dispute at the World Trade Organization (WTO) after the U.S. filed a complaint that India unlawfully restricts imports of solar equipment by requiring indigenous manufacturers to use domestically made solar cells and modules. According to Bloomberg, the complaint is the second lodged by the United States “against what it called India’s ‘unfair barrier to U.S. exports’ of solar components.” India’s solar program aims to lessen the impact of chronic energy shortages in the country and expects to double India’s renewable energy output by 2017.
