Abstract
This publication presents the importance that the embodied energy of the material of the support of a photovoltaic installation can have in relation to the energy produced and, therefore, in relation to other efficiency factors in the design of photovoltaic installations. The importance of these costs cannot be neglected in the overall of the system’s efficiency. The monitoring of photovoltaic panels after a few years of operation under real conditions demonstrates that a good integration of p...
