Toward a standard and interoperable approach for supporting the dissemination of environmental life cycle assessment results

Abstract : The raising awareness of ecological problems by the general public and decision-makers has led to an increased demand of corporate responsibility and the need for environmental information from consumers and private organizations. The access to environmental performance data is a key issue to allow the quantification of the benefits achieved by novel technologies, towards sustainability, in particular within the energy sector considering the energy transition current debate. In order to provide reliable open access information on environmental assessment aspects of the photovoltaic sector, an interactive tool build above Web services and hosted into a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) is being launched in 2016. This interactive tool provides the users with easy-to-use data and maps on a worldwide coverage for the solar irradiation and environmental results at screening level of representative technologies. The information is based on the most updated life cycle inventories, published in 2015 by the International Energy Agency (IEA), and the solar irradiation database computed from the worldwide NASA SSE database.
