DuPont: Photovoltaic Solutions Taps Global Markets

DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions (DPVS) recently exhibited a broad and growing portfolio of films, resins for encapsulants, encapsulant films, conductive pastes and more, at the 22nd European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition in Milan, Italy.

More than 12,000 participants from 75 countries attended the event, where DPVS highlighted its latest technologies for both crystalline and thin film solar module systems, designed to increase the lifetime of solar modules, and improve productivity of photovoltaic module makers. DuPont also emphasized significant capacity expansion programs, in line with expected growth in the industry.

“High performing materials are the essence of more efficient and longer lasting photovoltaic modules that are easier to install. These qualities are key to meeting customer needs, and DuPont has been putting our science to work to help our photovoltaic customers succeed for more than 20 years,” said Stacy Dedinas, global business manager, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions.

DuPont and the solar industry estimate that the global photovoltaic market is growing more than 30 percent per year. To meet the needs of the fast-growing market, DuPont last year announced that it has invested USD 50 million to expand production of DuPont™ Tedlar® polyvinyl fluoride film (PVF) at its Fayetteville, N.C., facility, which is on track to begin resin production late this year. Finished films are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2008. Coupled with additional expansions for other DuPont photovoltaic materials, DuPont's total investment is about USD 100 million.
