Call for Participation: Technical Committee on Ultra-Low Carbon Criteria for Photovoltaic Modules
The Global Electronics Council (GEC) is developing criteria for its EPEAT ecolabel to calculate and identify low embodied carbon solar panels. This Call for Participation is to notify stakeholders of the opportunity to participate on the multi-stakeholder Technical Committee that will evaluate and reach consensus on these leadership criteria. GEC is partnering with Anthesis, an organization with extensive expertise in life cycle analysis, to convene and manage the Technical Committee. The State of Sustainability Report on Ultra Low Carbon Solar provides the scientific-basis and background documentation for criteria development.
The Technical Committee is the consensus body in the GEC criteria development process. The Technical Committee on ultra-low carbon solar criteria is expected to begin its work in October 2021 and continue for up to 4 months. Technical Committee meetings will occur monthly via teleconference. See the Call for Participation for more information on the role of the Technical Committee and how to apply for membership. Applications for Technical Committee membership are due by midnight ET on September 11, 2021.
