Sustainability Criteria and Environmental Declarations for PV
Solar panels are a source of green electricity production. Once installed they provide sustainable local production of energy.
As all products also solar panels have an environmental impact from the manufacturing processes.
Lately an increased interest in the sustainability of the whole lifecycle has arisen. There is a question of how to distinguish between the environmental impact of different panels. A standardized method for providing information on the environmental impact is sought after.
The Norwegian EPD Foundation, public sector and partners of the Norwegian Solar Energy Cluster have developed an answer to this.
The very important component in order to make EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations). the so-called PCR (Product Category Rules) for solar panels are in place and can make the foundation for an even more sustainable solar business.
The webinar is a launch for the PCR for PV, making a foundation for standardized EPDs. The rules are common for Europe and an EPD is valid across Europe and can also be used world-wide. The launching of the PCR is a mayor step for even more sustainable solar panel manufacturing.
All of this is closely linked to the European Green Deal and the new Circular Economy Action Plan for a cleaner and more competitve Europe.
