MIDLAND, Mich., Sept. 2, 2011 — Dow Solar, a business unit of the Dow Chemical Co., was awarded a $12.8 million, 3-year grant from the US Department of Energy’s SunShot initiative to fund a program that will reduce the cost of building- integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) solar products.

The DoE grant will help fund a $22.4 million program that brings together leaders from across the solar value chain, including solar solutions providers, national laboratories, universities, electronics companies and national home builders to create solar technology that reduces total installation costs and provides reliable energy to residential customers.

Dow Solar’s “Transformational Approach to Reducing the Total System Costs of Building Integrated Photovoltaics” program will develop materials and designs to enable the integration of lightweight and robust BIPV shingles. The company calculates that the systems reduce the installed cost to meet the DoE target of $2/W without subsidies.
