Short description
Switzerland participates in the IEA PVPS Task 12 on “PV Sustainability”. In the work period 2013-2017 some of the flagship products of IEA PVPS Task 12, such as the methodology guidelines for life cycle assessment (Frischknecht et al. 2015a) and net energy analysis of PV systems (Raugei et al. 2015) as well as the compilation of life cycle inventories (LCIs) of PV systems (Frischknecht et al. 2015b), were updated and further developed. Additionally, life cycle assessments (LCAs) were carried out for future PV electricity production (Frischknecht et al. 2015c) and the current recycling of PV modules (Stolz et al. 2017).
