Life-cycle assessment of a photovoltaic system in Catalonia (Spain)
AbstractThe life-cycle analysis (LCA) of photovoltaic (PV) systems is an important tool to quantify the potential environmental advantage of using solar technologies versus more traditional technologies, especially the ones relying on non-renewable fossil fuel sources.
