Summary The overall objective of the research effort over its three-phase duration is to develop a reduced-cost, higher throughput, improved-performance packaging solution for United States Photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturers. The primary target of the work is to develop a packaging solution that will reduce the overall cost contribution of this component by a minimum of 25% relative to the conventional Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA)/ Poly vinyl fluoride (PVF) batch lamination and will provide improved reliability for twenty-plus years of performance in the field. During the subcontract, Dow Corning shall formulate and optimize adhesive, encapsulant, and barrier materials for use with a broad range of current PV technologies. This effort is expected to result in improved performance encapsulation materials and the establishment of a pilot-scale, protection-system production line capable of processing full-size, single-crystalline Silicon PV modules.
