DuPont to be featured at SPI
WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 10, 2012 – DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions will be on display in a big way at this year’s Solar Power International (SPI) Convention, the industry's largest, most comprehensive solar energy event in North America, from Sept. 10th - 13th at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. DuPont, located in Booth 2540, will feature daily presentations (at 10:30am and 2:30pm) on the critical role of materials in improving efficiency, lifetime and overall cost of PV modules, with a special emphasis on the importance of module reliability to ensure lower levelized cost of electricity and improved returns on investments in PV.
Additionally, Dr. Alex Z. Bradley, principal investigator, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions, will be moderating a panel on Standardization of Codes for Solar Project Development on Wednesday, September 12th at 10:30 a.m. in room W314A. Oversight codes for solar project installation are managed by an enormous range of governing agencies. In order to streamline these regulations, it is critical to understand how model codes are developed, as well as the processes for their adoption at the state and local levels. This discussion will elaborate on how the industry can best support state and local regulations and common codes and practices for the integration of solar into building contractor practices.
