Description

Location: GLO - Global
Production of photovoltaic thin film modules by vapour deposition. The modules produced at First Solar have a size of 1.2m by 0.6 m. The weight is 12.0kg. The efficiency is 9%. The rated nominal power is about 65Wp per module.
[The full documentation of this dataset was originally provided in the corresponding ecoinvent report from the Swiss Centre for Life Cycle Inventories, which is accessible for free to guests and users of ecoinvent version 2 (https://www.ecoinvent.org/login-databases.html). The dataset may subsequently have been subjected to central changes to the database, as described in the respective change report for each new release.]
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

Production technology of thin film cells. Sublimation of the powders and condensation of the vapours on a glass substrate by vapour transport deposition (VTD).
