Description

Location: JP - Japan
This dataset represents the production of grid-connected low voltage electricity with a 570 kWp open ground photovoltaic (PV) plant in Japan in 2012. Large central photovoltaic power stations in the higher kilowatt to megawatt range can feed directly into the medium- or high voltage grid. However, the voltage depends largely on the design and size of the plant. In order to treat all photovoltaic installations the same way (no matter which size, design and installation type (building integrated or open ground)), low voltage electricity is assumed as a product in this dataset. Please see field 'extrapolations' for further discussion.
The plant consists out of multi-Si panel modules with a total capacity of 570 kWp.
An inverter is used to convert the low voltage DC power into AC power.
An average yield of {{yield}} was assumed for the calculations.
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.
