leading one-stop solutions provider for solar projects, has sealed a strategic 
collaboration agreement with DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions(DuPont) during the

"We are very pleased to forge this in-depth partnership with DuPont. The 
DuPontâ„¢ Tedlar® PVF film has always been the prime choice for our modules and 
I'm confident that our cooperation will further enhance the quality, 
performance and reliability of our products," said Xin Luo, Chairman of GCL-SI.

As global demand for new sources of energy has continued to grow, scientific 
innovations in the PV industry are of great significance. In the past five 
decades, DuPont has been at the forefront of solar innovation, according to 
Eric Wang, Global Commercial Director at DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions. "We are 
very excited to showcase our innovative achievement at the CIIE and build 
strategic ties with GCL-SI. Our commitment to innovation has helped us create 
PV materials that stand the test of time and drive sustainable growth in the PV 
industry."

According to Wang, more than half of the world's solar panels installed since 
1975 have DuPont materials in them. DuPontTM Tedlar® film-based backsheet is 
the only backsheet material proven to protect solar panels for over 30 years in 
all weather conditions with an aim of maximizing durability and reliability and 
minimizing system defects.

Revenue from PV products manufacturing has fallen in recent years, as the 
market has been flooded with PV modules and products that have not been tested 
or that do not meet the toughest industry standards. It is a common objective 
throughout the PV industry to improve investment returns to that of the last 25 
years while lowering overall costs. In that sense, the quality of PV materials 
is key. Working with partners such as DuPont, GCL-SI aims to provide 
top-quality PV products and holistic solutions for new energy systems. GCL-SI 
now has six manufacturing centers for PV modules around the world with a total 
output of 6 GW.
