Environmental Input and Output Analysis on the Solar PV Industry Chain of China
Current research on this chain doesn't focus not only on the overall environmental benefits of the chain by monetized quantitative analysis, but also on the environmental impact of the process. Research on the environmental effect of solar energy is just based on a single enterprise individual, rather than the whole industry chain. Paper describes and quantifies the impact of chain's operation on environment, does descriptive study on the developing trend of domestic solar energy and the environmental problems of it's chain, and analyses the environmental effect on the point of view of the environmental input and output of the China's solar PV industry chain.
