This work focuses mainly on LCA of thin-film solar panels produced in the Netherlands. Using all the input real-data from the factory, we are able to estimate all the environmental impact of the manufacturing steps. Moreover, we evaluate the impact of the technological advancement (Higher efficiency, different deposition rate of the bottom cell in tandem configuration). Finally, large scale utilities and location analyses have been carried out.
