The World Electronics Council (GEC) has unveiled “Standards for the Analysis of Extremely-Low Carbon Modules.” This set of standards goals to “set up a framework, standardized methodology, and efficiency aims to encourage producers and suppliers to design and manufacture low embodied carbon photovoltaic (PV) modules.”
GEC has developed two ranges of emissions requirements: low carbon and ultra-low carbon (ULCS). To satisfy the low carbon normal, the photo voltaic module, together with its body, will need to have an embodied carbon footprint equal to or lower than 630 kg CO2e/kWp. To satisfy the ULCS normal, the footprint of the module should be at or under 400 kg CO2e/kWp.
Of their evaluation, GEC created charts that estimate the carbon depth of energy grids in numerous nations concerned in photo voltaic panel manufacturing. They then calculated a “World Warming Potential” (GWP) coefficient for every subcomponent of the photo voltaic panel.
