Dow Corning – Sustaining sponsor of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011

There has never been a more important time to further develop viable, renewable, clean energy sources, and there is no better way to achieve that goal than by challenging great minds from universities all over the world.

That's why our sustaining sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011 comes with the promise that we will always be an active, involved collaborator with students, researchers, manufacturers and governments. We are committed to driving innovation in the solar industry as solar becomes economically competitive with conventional energy sources and a sustainable energy option globally. Learn more.

Send a sunny message to congress

Solar energy can help our nation create jobs and economic growth, expand its energy capacity, and become less dependent on foreign oil. Dow Corning has a plan for making America a 21st century solar power. Help us spread the word.

Supporting the solar industry

To help solar become economically competitive with conventional energy sources and a sustainable energy option globally, Dow Corning and its joint ventures at the Hemlock Semiconductor Group have announced investments of more than $5 billion over the past six years to research and develop, as well as to expand production of, materials critical to the solar industry.
