Improving the Efficiency of Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells
DuPont™ Solamet® photovoltaic metallization pastes have allowed the conversion efficiencies of mass produced solar cells to nearly double over the past 12 years.
Through continued investment in research, development and intellectual property, DuPont continues to focus on increasing solar cell efficiency, extending module lifetime and lowering overall system costs to make solar energy more competitive with other sources of electricity.
DuPont™ Solamet® metallization pastes help drive higher energy conversion efficiency, enabling lower levelized cost of energy (LCOE). This is achieved by reducing cost with continuous improvements in material content cost and laydown.
