Life cycle assessment of a solar PV/T concentrator system

Grippaldi, V; Mistretta, M

Risultato della ricerca: Paper

Abstract

The paper shows the energy and environmental analysis of a solar low Concentrating Photovoltaic-Thermal (CPVT) system, installed on the roof of the Energy Department building at University of Palermo (Italy). LCA methodology was applied to assess the whole life-cycle of the selected Functional Unit. Data survey from the producing company regarding the consumption of energy sources and of materials were developed. The assessment allowed to identify the steps and the system components addressing the highest energy and environmental impacts. Energy and environmental benefits and drawbacks related to the CPVT system. The research was developed within the National Relevant Research Programme (PRIN 2008) ‘‘Definition of innovative criteria for the environmental oriented design and production of Energy Using Products in the civil sector”.
