Photovoltaic Systems Stewardship Options Assessment

Equilibrium is currently analysing PV Systems Stewardship Options for Sustainability Victoria. Through stakeholder engagement and feasibility studies, we will assess various options and provide robust recommendations.

Sustainability Victoria engaged Equilibrium to analyse national product stewardship approach options for photovoltaic (PV) systems in Australia. The material contained within PV system components which can be hazardous and have limited disposal options available in Australia. As a result,  they present potential risks to the environment and human health if not managed safely at end-of-life.

Equilibrium, supported by Ernst & Young, developed a project plan and completed stakeholder mapping and consultation to assess the current situation. We are undertaking a feasibility study including a multi-criteria analysis  to identify a preferred product stewardship pathway for PV systems and/or components in Australia. Furthermore, Equilibrium will develop a Stakeholder Engagement Plan and Risk Management Plan to support the final report.
