THE LATEST SUSTAINABLE DESIGN TECHNIQUES FOR SOLAR MODULES

Solar Manufacturing: Environmental Design Concepts for Solar Modules explains the sustainable development methods used by today's leading photovoltaic companies. After reviewing various photovoltaic technologies and providing an overview of sustainable development, this practical guide illustrates how to apply sustainable development metrics to solar modules. The book describes how metrics are included in regulations, and how regulations can present barriers to market entry. Innovative product development trends used to improve the environmental attributes of solar modules are discussed in this timely resource.

COVERAGE INCLUDES:
* Introduction to photovoltaic technology * Motivation for sustainable development initiatives in the photovoltaic industry * Environmental metrics used by photovoltaic companies and example calculations * Environmental regulations used as trade barriers * Current trends to increase environmental sustainability * A full glossary and common abbreviations used in the industry
