Luigi Vesce from the University of Rome Tor Vergata Addresses Sustainability in Manufacturing at SAIPho23 Workshop

Sustainability Assessment of Innovative Photovoltaics 2023 | Siena, Italy

November 13-15, 2023

Luigi Vesce, a representative from the University of Rome Tor Vergata, recently took center stage at the SAIPho23 Workshop, contributing to discussions on the sustainable production of perovskite modules. In his oral presentation titled “Manufacturing of large area perovskite solar modules: technological, environmental, and cost assessment,” Vesce delved into the technological intricacies, environmental considerations, and cost assessments associated with this innovative solar technology.

SAIPho23 Workshop, with its overarching goals, serves as a crucial platform for aligning and harmonizing Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodologies. The workshop aims to enhance the comparability of LCA results, particularly for cutting-edge PV technologies. Additionally, it seeks to support the implementation of prospective LCAs by defining methodological and data protocols.

One of the key objectives of the workshop is to facilitate discussions on the potential integration and coupling of LCA studies with other environmental and socio-economic assessment models and methods. By fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange, SAIPho23 strives to create a robust network dedicated to sustainability assessment. This network, in turn, aims to play a pivotal role in supporting the development of the European technology roadmap for photovoltaics (PV).

Luigi Vesce’s active participation in the workshop aligns with the broader mission of advancing sustainable practices in the manufacturing of perovskite solar modules. His insights contribute to the ongoing dialogue aimed at shaping the future of environmentally conscious and economically viable PV technologies.
