DuPont (DD - Analyst Report) has entered into a $100 million agreement with Yingli Energy (China) Company Limited (Yingli China), a wholly owned subsidiary of Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (Yingli Green Energy) to supply photovoltaic materials for solar model production. The deal is an expansion of a supply agreement between the companies announced in Feb 2012.

Per the agreement, Yingli China will purchase materials including DuPont Solamet photovoltaic metallization paste that will help to increase the power output of solar cells and DuPont Tedlar polyvinyl fluoride film that protects solar panels even in the harshest environmental conditions.

As per the deal, the collaboration will install a solar energy plant at a DuPont facility in China and will potentially install similar plants in additional sites. Both the companies have also come to terms to develop the next generation of high-efficiency solar cells and modules, along with co-marketing activities.
