Prospective life cycle assessment of third-generation photovoltaics at the pre-industrial scale: A long-term scenario approach

  • Posted by R2ES Laboratory
  • On 13 Gennaio 2020
The development of sustainable technologies for energy generation should necessarily undergo sustainability assessment. A well-recognized, valuable tool to accomplish this task is the life cycle assessment. In particular, prospective life cycle assessment can provide the useful methodological framework to calculate eco-profiles of third-generation photovoltaic technologies with a future-oriented perspective. In this paper, we present the […]
