DuPont has introduced a suite of science-powered photovoltaic (PV) innovations – expanding the solar industry’s broadest portfolio of PV solutions to meet the needs of the fast-growing solar energy market.  DuPont innovations are designed to increase the efficiency and lifetime of solar modules and reduce overall system costs to help lower the cost of solar energy versus other forms of electricity.

“The sun never sets on DuPont innovation in the solar industry,” said Dave Miller, president – DuPont Electronics & Communications.  “Our customers and other stakeholders challenge us every day to deliver materials that matter in further improving efficiency, lifetime and system costs to help bring the cost of solar energy down in line with other forms of electricity.  We’re making strong progress by accelerating new product developments and time to market, investing in capacity to continue to meet the growing demand and collaborating with our customers and others, while helping the world reduce its dependence on fossil fuels.”

DuPont innovations in PV are key to the manufacture of both crystalline silicon and thin film solar cells 

DuPont continues expanding the solar industry’s broadest portfolio of PV solutions to meet the needs of the fast-growing solar energy market.
and modules.  The most recent additions to DuPont’s innovative PV portfolio include:
  • Four new Solamet® metallization pastes which have been developed to enhance the efficiency of solar cells.
  • DuPont™ PV5400 series thin ionomer-based encapsulant sheets that protect sensitive and cost-effective thin film solar modules.
  • A new Tedlar® PV2400 polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) film offering extends the availability of long life backsheet material to better meet mounting demand in the industry.
