DSM inaugurates Solar Technologies Demonstration Center in India

Royal DSM, the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences Company, has inaugurated its Solar Technologies Demonstration Center at its DSM Engineering Plastics facility in Pune, India. This state-of-the-art solar technology centre has been built to demonstrate and showcase the performance of DSM’s innovations in solar technology and will also reduce the plant’s CO2¬ footprint by using the renewable energy generated by the solar plant to meet 25 per cent of the site’s electricity needs.
DSM aims to help enable the penetration of solar energy by focusing on the development and commercialisation of technologies and materials solutions that increase the efficiency and yield of solar modules, thereby increasing the energy generation and reducing the cost of solar electricity.
Oscar Goddijn, Vice President, DSM Advanced Surfaces said, “We aspire to be a world leader in materials based solutions for solar photovoltaic technologies. Our newly commissioned solar energy plant in Pune is the first of our demonstration facilities to showcase our technologies to customers and stakeholders around the world.”
With demand for energy increasing around the world, DSM recognizes the need to use alternative energy solutions for its own use. As an example of this approach, the DSM Engineering Plastics site in Pune now meets 50 per cent of its total electricity requirements from renewable sources, of which 25 per cent are from the Solar Technologies Demonstration Center at the site and 25 per cent already coming from wind power.
