Solar Factsheets – Materials

SolarPower Europe’s Sustainability Task Force has launched Solar Facts, a set of documents based on scientific, peer-reviewed sources that highlight how solar energy contributes to social, economic and environmental sustainability.

The factsheets cover five key topics related to solar, including: cost and efficiency, sustainability, employment and job creation, materials usage and recycling.

Key findings from the factsheets are available in the form of social media cards which can be shared on social networks.
