LCA GHG emissions of various energy systems (2000)

Topics: ,
For solar electricity, a concentrating solarthermal power generation system with parabolic trough, a solar tower plant with a concentrating mirror field and a parabolic solar 'dish' mirror with a Stirling engine



Additional information

For PV, three types of cells were considered: monocrystalline, multicrystalline, and amorphous placed on a reference site with 1 000h/a of sunlight. For wind power, an on-shore wind park with 1.5 MWsize turbines is considered (10 turbines, wind speed of 9m/s). For geothermal, a large geothermal steam turbine plant in Italy (1 MWel) and a small scale 'binary' ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) system in Germany that uses a closed loop are considered in the life cycle assessment.
