All would agree that the attainment of grid parity requires persistent system cost reduction while improving performance. This cost/performance roadmap will be achieved largely through technological innovation.
Dr. Lan Ma, global marketing director, DuPont Photovoltaic Fluoromaterials, was a panellist at the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA) 10th Market Workshop. The panel discussed global solar markets, trends and opportunities.
More than half of the world’s 300 million solar panels installed since 1975 rely on DuPont materials science. That means many of our innovative materials have been time-tested for decades in more than five trillion panel-hours of outdoor PV field installations all around the world.
