Human Health Risk Assessment Methods for PV part 1 – Fire risks

The photovoltaic (PV) industry has experienced rapid growth in recent years due in part to the development of public policies to address climate change and energy security. Some industry stakeholders have expressed concerns regarding potential human inhalation exposure to hazardous materials should a PV module array be exposed to fire, particularly in a residential or commercial rooftop application.

Upscaling urban residential retrofit for the EU's low carbon future: Challenges and opportunities

With respect to the EU climate and energy goals, a major challenge for cities lies within retrofitting the existing urban building stock. Accordingly, many EU funded projects have a focus on (residential) building retrofit and experiment with new techniques and operational procedures, financing schemes, end user engagement strategies and governance process setups. These have led to a wealth of experiences and replicable successes that deserve to be maximally disseminated.
