A Circular Economy for Solar Photovoltaic System Materials: Drivers, Barriers, Enablers, and U.S. Policy Considerations

Download the document.

In this report we analyze drivers, barriers, and enablers to a circular economy for PV system
materials in the United States. We also analyze federal, state, and local requirements that apply
to the reuse, recycling, and disposal of PV modules and BOS equipment, as well as the legal
liability associated with non-compliance. We then discuss state policies and initiatives in the
United States that expressly address reuse, recycling, and disposal of PV system equipment. We
conclude by providing case studies of U.S. business models for the repair, reuse, recycling of PV
modules and BOS equipment.
