REC partners with ECN to measure carbon footprint


The vertically integrated solar energy manufacturer has undertaken this analysis so that it can have a better understanding of the impact its operations have on the environment. The results will be revealed later this year.

REC Asia Pacific sales manager Mr. Ian Roger Smith told pv magazine at the Intersolar Europe trade fair in Munich that the company’s philosophy was centered on reducing costs as well as environmental impacts via operational efficiencies.

REC already has a relatively small carbon footprint in comparison to other players in the market, due to the fact it uses hydropower for all its silicon production and for the majority of its wafer and cell operations. pv magazine’s visit to the Singapore plant also confirmed that its operations there run partially on solar power.
