Abstract

Infrastructure-integrated photovoltaic (IIPV) has potential to improve the green credentials of solar energy at a time when environmental impacts of energy systems are under increasing scrutiny. However, little attention has been given to the environmental sustainability of IIPV in comparison with standalone PV systems and other energy technologies. Research is urgently needed to address this apparent gap in our understanding of IIPV's impact on existing infrastructure, the environment and wider society before its large-scale deployment.
