DuPont, D-SUN to increase adoption of solar energy
DuPont and Distributed Sun aim to facilitate PV project specifications to improve returns for system owners, investors and users.

WILMINGTON/WASHINGTON DC, US: DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions and Distributed Sun LLC (D-SUN) are collaborating to help drive increased adoption of solar energy through the D-SUN Distributed Solar Network. Together the companies will advocate best practice specifications, promote data transparency and provide access to a comprehensive suite of analytical tools to benefit the growing solar energy industry.

The aim is to facilitate project specifications that will better inform the decisions of system owners, investors and users. DuPont will help guide D-SUN on specifications for materials that deliver improved efficiency, lifetime and lower overall system costs to maximize returns for solar installations, and reduce investment risk.

“This programme will bring together the entire solar industry value chain in ways that benefit all market constituents. By increasing transparency, our collaboration drives optimal module selection standards with a preferred bill of materials and a standardized bill of materials for solar installations. Improving solar value for ratepayers, taxpayers, capital markets, policy-makers and the environment is our shared commitment. We look forward to a long cooperation with DuPont across our shared missions – where distributed solar energy generation provides a significant share of our electricity portfolio,” said Chase Weir, CEO, Distributed Sun.
