REBA: EPEAT 101: Using Ecolabels to Decarbonize the Solar Industry
Solar installations are expected to triple by 2030, and with rapid growth comes increasing scrutiny of the carbon found in the solar supply chain. While the energy produced by solar photovoltaic (PV) technology is free of emissions, the extraction of raw materials, sourcing, and manufacturing associated with the production of PV technology is not.
Companies can choose to address the emissions impact of their solar PV technology by using ecolabels that ensure products meet rigorous sustainability criteria. Ecolabels have a history of being used by program managers and institutional purchasers to showcase the sustainability of their projects and meet organizational net-zero goals. As the world increasingly feels the impacts of climate change, the ability to credibly show how one’s choice of PV technology is reducing emissions is essential.
Join the REBA Institute and the Global Electronics Council (GEC) on a deep dive into EPEAT ecolabel.
Hear from Debbie Graham-Clifford, Senior Manager at GEC and Dr. Parikhit Sinha, Senior Scientist of Sustainability Research at First Solar on the benefits and the registration process of EPEAT to help you on your ecolabel journey.
