Advanced Materials Help Turn Rocky Road into Smooth Path Forward at Solar Park in France

Hanau Energies Concept Counts on DuPont™ Tedlar® Films and Solamet® Pastes for Superior Durability, Longevity and Power Output


The growing adoption of solar energy continues in France, with close to 400 megawatts (MW) of solar-generated electricity connected across the country in the first six months of 2014 alone.1 One of the organizations driving this growth is Hanau Energies Concept, a French project developer and investor in solar installations. With the completion of the Sallèles-Cabardès installation, its third for 2014, Hanau continues to play a prominent role in helping France move toward the goals set by the European Commission in its Renewable Energy Action Plan.

For this high-profile project, choosing the right materials was key. Developers had to select materials that would deliver the high-efficiency performance and durability that the installation required.
