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.
The transition to larger cell formats is well underway, with 182mm and 210mm products together representing almost 50% of the market last year. Discussion of the benefits, however, has often focused on large-scale solar projects. This has left many to wonder whether the space-constrained rooftop segment would also see the lower cost and higher energy yields promised by the new generation of PV modules. In this pv magazine Webinar, we take a closer look at how rooftop PV is managing the transition, and Longi Solar introduces its latest product for this segment, a 54-cell, 410 W module based on the 182mm wafer.
