What’s important in solar? Here Nicola Sicchieri, VP Business Development Americas, provides some quick thoughts…
The number of installations is growing all the time and we are now seeing Chinese module makers interested in setting up manufacturing in the United States. For a company like DSM we see this as an opportunity to forge new partnerships!
A working site in New Jersey, which helps to power our own manufacturing facility; and a larger one in South Carolina. This is part of DSM strategy to go 100% renewable, and we expect many others will follow.
We are very close to the module makers, but also specifiers, and increasingly, finance professionals and bankers - who are becoming more interested and influential in the industry.
With growing tax equity investment, the need for proven, sustainable solutions like those we offer (Anti-Reflective & Anti-Soiling coatings and Endurance backsheets) is a major advantage for project developers.
Over the last two years we’ve partnered with incubators like Greentown labs and Powerhouse to look for innovative technologies. Through our venture department in Boston we’ve already invested in multiple US startups and we intend to keep building this portfolio in the coming years.
And discover how we can help you boost solar power.
