Photovoltaic Sustainability and Management examines photovoltaic (PV) technologies that are widely used to convert light into electrical power. While PV power generation is sustainable and emission-free, the manufacture and placement of PV modules have environmental impacts that need consideration by professionals in the industry.

This book:

• Discusses the techno-economic, carbon footprint, and life cycle sustainability performances of photovoltaic technologies.
• Focuses on nontechnical factors that significantly influence the effectiveness of PV deployment, including challenges, innovations, policies, environmental impacts, location selection, and management.
• Investigates PV technologies from life cycle and sustainability perspectives.
Photovoltaic Sustainability and Management is for academic researchers, technicians, and consultants engaged in PV research or working in PV technologies or the renewable energy industry.
