    According a new report released by IRENA and the International Energy Agency's Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme, recycling or repurposing solar PV panels at the end of their working life - around 30 years can unlock a large stock of raw materials and other valuable components. Although solar PV recycling is still a relatively young industry, renewables targets and subsidies have seen capacity increase significantly in the UK and other EU countries, while the US, India and China are also now beginning to experience growth.
