Description

Multi-Si When applying the LCA data of the multi-crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules production process for environmental impact assessment or other sustainability analyses, ensure to account for the geographical specificity of the modules' use, particularly the solar radiation and peak sunshine hours in the central region of Ningxia, China. The lifespan of the PV system is 30 years, and this should be integrated into calculations of cumulative energy demand and emissions over time. Furthermore, considerations regarding the end-of-life phase should include potential recycling and reuse pathways for the aluminum and glass components of the modules.
