We present the process and the results of harmonization of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions during the life cycle of commercial thin‐film photovoltaics (PVs), that is, amorphous silicon (a‐Si), cadmium telluride (CdTe), and copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS). We reviewed 109 studies and harmonized the estimates of GHG emissions by aligning the assumptions, parameters, and system boundaries. During the initial screening we eliminated abstracts, short conference papers, presentations without… Expand
