Description

Location: CN-SX - China, Shanxi (山西)
This dataset represents the production of grid-connected low voltage electricity with a 3 kWp building integrated photovoltaic (PV) module in China - Shanxi in 2012. The 3 kWp module has been chosen as basic module for building integrated PV electricity production. Larger modules can easily be built with these 3 kWp modules without producing a significant error in environmental impact calculations. The module is a single-Si panel installed on a slanted roof.
An inverter is used to convert the low voltage DC power into AC power.
[This dataset is meant to replace the following datasets:]
Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.

Technology

Electricity production with a grid-connected 3 kWp single-Si photovoltaic panel mounted on a building slanted roof. See field 'extrapolation' for comment on the output voltage.
