Solar technologies offer a number of environmental benefits, including the reduction of harmful pollutants and carbon emissions in comparison to fossil fuel-based energy sources. Climate change, sustainability and recycling are all major areas of focus of the solar industry, which is taking steps to address environmental impacts throughout the lifecycle of solar products and projects.
Solar energy plays an important role in transitioning the U.S. to a low-carbon, sustainable future. Solar technologies can provide innovative, cost-effective solutions to reduce emissions in a number of sectors of the economy.
The falling cost of solar has made renewable energy accessible to more people than ever before and has resulted in an
exponential increase in solar adoption. As such, end-of-life management is important for all PV technologies to
ensure clean energy solutions are a sustainable component of the energy economy for future generations.
A diverse group of energy industry associations including energy efficiency and storage, natural gas, oil, solar and wind issued the following statement condemning the administration’s draft plan to bail out coal and nuclear plants across the country.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) formally launched at Solar Power International a first-of-its-kind national solar photovoltaic (PV) recycling program to cement the sustainability of the U.S. solar industry.
