Solar Photovoltaic Technology Production: Potential Environmental Impacts and Implications for Governance
Solar Photovoltaic Technology Production: Potential Environmental Impacts and Implications for Governance provides an overview of the emerging industrial PV sector, its technologies, and the regulatory frameworks supporting them. This new book reviews and categorizes the potential environmental impacts of several main PV technologies, examining the extent to which current EU governance frameworks regulate such impacts. By identifying the gaps or regulatory mismatches and creating a basis for normative recommendations on governance change, this book analyzes potential governance implications and their impacts in relation to manufacturers upscaling PV production techniques.
- Fills the need for a coherent source of information on the potential impacts of different PV technologies
- Provides comprehensive coverage of lifecycle analysis (LCA) of PV technologies in a single reference
- Analyzes relevant governance arrangements for researchers and manufacturers
