The EC is expected to publish the results of an anti-dumping probe into Chinese solar panels following a 15-month investigation.
The investigation was launched after an industry association comprising 25 producers of solar gear claimed the panels were being exported below their production costs. In 2011, over half of China's $35.8 billion in exports of solar products went to Europe.
China's Ministry of Commerce expressed "deep regret" at the complaint, which is the biggest-ever anti-dumping claim filed with the EU, urging that restrictions could "destroy the healthy development of the global photovoltaic industry and clean energy".
According to EU Commission spokesman John Clancy, the bloc has a right and duty to look into the matter. "Trade defense is part of this relationship", Clancy said.
China is the world's largest producer of solar panels but denies having received any illegal subsidies.
