Trump Administration reduces tariffs on China-Made batteries from 15% to 7.5%

In response to a Phase One trade agreement, the White House halved import tariffs on batteries manufactured and imported from China.

The tariff on batteries, just one part of $300 billion worth of Chinese goods targeted by the White House last year, will fall from 15 percent to 7.5 percent, effective February 14. The move will incrementally improve economics for grid storage projects planning to use battery cells, modules and packs made in China.

The decision does not end policy interference in the energy storage marketplace.
