Environmental Considerations of PV Systems

Course subject(s) 8. PV Systems: Applications and Design

In this video Prof. Arno Smets talks about different ways of analyzing the sustainability of PV systems. There are two ways to approach this, looking at the carbon footprint, and looking at the energy cost of a system. For the purpose of simplicity, he will mainly look at the energy balance of the systems.

You will find the chapter associated to the lecture below the video.
