China's government aims to double solar installations this year and has set preferential power tariffs designed to encourage manufacturers and developers to move into cleaner energy sources, Bloomberg reports.

China's generosity to the solar industry has not gone unnoticed in the U.S. Gordon Brinser of Solarworld Industries America has called upon President Barack Obama to impose a tariff barrier on the imports of Chinese solar products. At the heart of the dispute is the claim that China pays unfair subsidies to its solar companies, James Melik of BBC World Service reports.
