DuPont Announces New DuPont™ Fortasun™ Solar Silicones

At the 2019 SNEC solar conference today in Shanghai, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions (DuPont) announced they added a new brand to its flagship DuPont™ Tedlar® and Solamet® product lines, DuPont™ Fortasun™ solar silicones.

This video features collaboration between DuPont and Suntech to provide critical materials for a solar installation that helps power the city of Masdar, one of the most sustainable communities on the planet.

DuPont celebrated the expansion of capabilities within its Silicon Valley Technology Center to include new innovations and collaborations in the fields of energy and electronics.

You can count on quality DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions to deliver the performance, efficiency and value you require, day after day, after day.

DuPont™ Solamet® metallization pastes continue to raise the bar of higher efficiency and reliable power output with lower silver content, helping to reduce overall system costs and achieve grid parity faster. Solamet® has the longest running record of reliability in the industry and through continuous innovation we are on track to achieve 22% efficiency by 2015.

This installation demonstrates the active commitment DuPont has to sustainable energy, sustainable agriculture and collaboration with the farming community on innovative solutions to feed and power the world.

See how innovative companies such as DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions and Tata Solar are working together to address India’s power deficit.

Watch as DuPont and Yingli Solar install a 210 kilowatt solar power project on the rooftop of the DuPont China R&D Center in Shanghai.

DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions is featured in a new video from DiscoverE that helps introduce middle school students to engineering as a fun and interesting potential career path.

Carlo Copetti, R&D Manager at Solland Solar talks about the reliability and proven performance of Tedlar® PVF film in backsheets has helped to reduce cycle times.

The 7th pv magazine Quality Roundtable made its debut in India at the Renewable Energy India Expo. The discussion raised a series of pertinent points relevant to India’s soaring solar market, particularly concerning the need to place quality ahead of cost. Rajaram Pai and Oakland Fu from DuPont discussed India’s most pressing PV issues at the roundtable.

Rajaram Pai, DuPont leader in South Asia talks about how large developers & investors are concerned about the efficiency and quality of PV modules to reliably produce power over their 25+-year expected lifetime in demanding environments such as India.

An animated solar power journey from the dawn of civilization to today’s convenient power. But solar modules need protection from the elements, day after day, and that’s where DuPont™ Tedlar® shines.

Domenico Chianese, Head of Photovoltaic and Electrical System Group, SUPSI talks about the paramount importance of PV materials, whose quality should not be compromised for the long-term durability and performance of solar modules.

In partnership with Moser Baer, DuPont helped design solar panels that provide reliable solar power to remote villages in northern India.

Moser Baer photovoltaic panels use high efficiency multi crystalline silicon solar cells to convert sunlight into electricity and have enormous potential to solve energy crisis in India.

By positioning the electrodes onto the back of the cell, leading scientists from Sharp and DuPont are now able to produce a panel that boasts a 22% increase in solar efficiency while attaining a 50% gain in productivity.
