The environmental impacts of roof-integrated flexible amorphous silicon/nanocrystalline silicon (a-Si/nc-Si) solar cell laminate are found to be similar to the environmental impacts of the roof-mounted common multicrystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) module. For the a-Si/nc-Si PV system under 1000 kWh/m2 annual insolation, we derived an energy payback time of 2.3 years.

This figure shows contributions of production steps to the primary energy demand and to the impact on climate change of constituent production processes and other components of the amorphous silicon/nanocrystalline silicon (a-Si/nc-Si) PV system.
