Dow Corning Silicone Encapsulation Technology Selected for PV Installation on Seowon University

Dow Corning, LG Electronics and the Seowon University have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for innovative photovoltaic (PV) systems.

Dow Corning’s silicone encapsulation technology is to be used in LG Electronics modules. The solar installation will take place in the Seowon University campus in South Korea.

A 15 kW roof top PV installation is planned for the campus. It is an array designed to serve as a testing and evaluation system. This is to be followed by a significantly larger 1 MW array that may be used for potential commercial applications. The PV system will provide an in-field demonstration of PV encapsulants produced by Dow Corning. It will also enable monitoring of module encapsulants made of ethylene vinyl acetate and silicone.

Dow Corning’s Vice President, Eric Peeters, stated that the company expects the PV systems made using Dow Corning silicone encapsulants to provide the same performance on the field as in the laboratory.

Solar business division leader at LG Electronics, Lee Chung-ho, commented that PV products from LG Electronics had maintained a high standard of quality control. The company will continue to focus on achieving good PV system performance in the solar PV market.

The chancellor of Seowon University, Son Suk-min, stated that the university focused on nurturing environmentally friendly technology. The university was happy to partner with LG Electronics and Dow Corning in contributing to the increased usage of solar energy and development of new PV technologies.
