DuPont hosted U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke, along with several U.S. business leaders and government officials, at the DuPont Apollo Thin Film Photovoltaic (PV) R&D Center in the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park as part of Secretary Locke’s trade mission to China.
As leader of the first Obama Administration trade mission, Locke is promoting exports of leading U.S. technologies related to clean energy, energy efficiency and electronic energy storage, transmission and distribution.
“DuPont is proud to be a part of this important trade mission because we share a commitment to meet the needs for clean energy technologies as China’s economy continues to grow,” said Doug Muzyka, president – DuPont Greater China. “China has made clean energy and energy efficiency a priority, and we believe this is a tremendous opportunity to showcase our thin film photovoltaic R&D lab and manufacturing facilities in the Asia Pacific region. DuPont Apollo represents the first total solar energy solution provider in China offering the market a one-stop thin film solution to respond and contribute to China's goal of deriving 15% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.”
Secretary Locke will lead American companies on this clean energy mission to advance export opportunities. The delegation will make stops in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.
