CECEP Solar Energy Technology Co., Ltd. and DuPont China Holdings signed a Strategic Cooperative Agreement Regarding Solar Technology Collaboration

 

SHANGHAI, China, February 28, 2014 - CECEP Solar Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (CECEP) and DuPont China Holdings Ltd. (DuPont) signed a strategic cooperative agreement regarding solar technology collaboration. After the signing ceremony, both sides had a thorough discussion about advanced materials and technology for solar cells and panel production and issues found in solar power plants.

“It’s our pleasure to work with a company like DuPont which has a history over hundreds of years,” said DuPont Wang Peng, general manager of CECEP Solar Energy Technology. “CECEP is planning solar projects on a scale of 500 acres. We are now investing in 500 megawatt (MW) solar cell and 600 MW module production as the 1st and 2nd stage. The 3rd stage will be completed soon and it will be a 1 gigawatt (GW) capacity for cell and module production. Through the cooperation with DuPont, we will continue to enhance the collaborations in technology and resource sharing in order to achieve a win-win in the growing solar market.”

“For over 210 years, DuPont has brought world-class science and engineering to help solve growing global challenges, including food, protection and energy,” said York Lu, regional market development manager, DuPont Photovoltaic Fluoromaterials. “Our ability to deliver advanced materials such as DuPont™ Solamet® metallization pastes and DuPont™ Tedlar® films, for example, are critical to improving power output and reliable lifetime of solar panels to optimize the return on investments in solar energy. We are honored that the strength of our collaboration with CECEP is helping solar succeed in China today, and we look forward to a bright future ahead.”

CECEP and DuPont China started the collaboration in 2012. The two companies have maintained a close relationship over the past two years. The signing of the strategic cooperative agreement is a milestone as the two companies will deepen the cooperation in product development for solar and conducting field research, reliability and module failure study from the field. This also marks an important step to help improve solar industry development in China.
