DuPont and Suntech sign agreement


DuPont and Suntech have signed an agreement to help increase the supply of photovoltaic (PV) materials and technologies for the growing global market for solar energy.

The agreement focuses on technology advancements, supply chain optimisation cost reduction initiatives, and DuPont’s Tedlar polyvinyl fluoride film supply. The companies also are pursuing co-marketing opportunities.

The goal of the agreement is to achieve a faster and broader adoption of solar energy to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels.

“Creating higher efficiency solar cells and further extending the life of solar modules is critical to achieving affordable solar power, and we’ve worked closely and very successfully with DuPont in this regard. We’re taking our collaboration to the next level with this agreement,” said Eric Luo, Senior Vice President, Suntech.
