Environmental impact is a growing consumer consideration when investing in renewable energy. Millions of solar modules are produced every year and a huge amount of energy and high-value materials like silicon, silver, and glass go into their making. As part of moving toward a circular economy, module recycling processes need to be improved and scaled up as a tool to retain the value of those materials. And this will also require improvements in transparency and compliance when it comes to the sourcing and documenting of materials.
In this pv magazine Webinar, we will examine the processes that go into sustainable module production and recycling.
Solar companies have an important role to play in embedding sustainability in their operations if lofty ambitions are to become a reality. On November 8, together with Trina Solar, we will examine the latest analysis of solar sustainability towards the terawatt age as well as providing insights into the report and the company’s ambitions for radically reducing emissions in its operations.
In this upcoming pv magazine Webinar, Italian PV backsheet manufacturer Coveme and US/Canadian module producer Silfab Solar will present the results of their Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) of PV backsheets which demonstrate that there is not only a strong correlation between the PVEL Backsheet Durability Sequence and the component-level HALT results, but that component level testing can be a crucial consideration for module manufacturers.
In this pv magazine webinar, REC will present its new Alpha Pure-R HJT module series and show how an exemplary life cycle of premium solar modules can look like. For several years now, the company has been implementing sustainability strategies in its production, starting with polysilicon and ending with the recycling of end-of-life solar modules.
Join this pv magazine Webinar to learn how two scalable technologies (solar and PEM electrolysis) can be optimally sized and controlled to minimize LCOH and realize the untold potential of what could prove to be the renewable fuel source of the 21st century.
In this pv magazine Webinar, learn about the challenges facing O&M provision in 2022 and the role automation can play in delivering the sustainable operation of existing and new PV assets. Leading robotic cleaner supplier Ecoppia will draw on eight years of experience in supplying its robots to projects during the webinar including case studies where robotic cleaning has been deployed.
ArcelorMittal, a leading supplier of steel and a major actor in the solar industry, will join us to talk about its foray into the world of low CO2 steel and present solutions to improve mounting structure design, durability, and environmental impact.
What is agrivoltaics and how can it provide value for the solar industry and the wider community? Our upcoming pv magazine Webinar will discuss the different types of agrivoltaic projects and how they can become part of a circular economy.
Join this pv magazine Webinar for a discussion about what elements should be placed into a purchase agreement, from adequate quality requirements to emerging supply chain requirements, and what support you can get from an accredited inspection body to ensure high quality PV module manufacturing and delivery.
In this pv magazine Webinar we’ll examine the latest developments in back-contact manufacturing, and the materials that go into these modules. Viewers will see why the numbers are beginning to stack up for back-contact, in comparison to multi-busbar and other conventional module technologies. We’ll also hear why the materials and processes used in back-contact manufacturing, when chosen and monitored properly of course, can lead to big improvements on the sustainability side.
