PV Energy Can Reduce Climate Change, Report Finds

Brussels, Belgium [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] A report confirming that solar photovoltaics (PV) can contribute to reduce CO2 emissions and is energy efficient is jointly published by the International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme, the European Photovoltaic Technology Platform and the European Photovoltaic Industry Association. This report provides objective figures based on a worldwide survey of existing studies concerning the energy input of PV systems, used to calculate the “energy pay-back time” and the “energy return factor,” and on data concerning CO2 emission in the electricity mixes of 26 OECD countries. Concerning CO2 emissions, each 10 m2 of solar electricity panels installed can avoid up to 40 tons of CO2 emissions.
