“DuPont will enforce its patent rights to protect our substantial investment in innovation to improve solar energy efficiency,” said Peter Brenner, global photovoltaic business marketing manager, Microcircuit Materials, DuPont Electronics & Communications. “Installers and module makers like SunEdison are responsible for ensuring that their products do not use infringing cells or pastes. Our patented tellurium technology is available only from DuPont; no other photovoltaic paste manufacturer has a license to use our patented technology.”
As a leading supplier of materials to the photovoltaic industry, DuPont has helped improve the power output, reliable lifetime and cost-competitiveness of solar energy through innovations such as Solamet® photovoltaic metallization paste products. DuPont has been able to deliver these innovations to the solar industry as a result of investing heavily in research and development.
