Title: Energy return on investment (EROI) of solar PV: An attempt at reconciliation

Abstract

This research examines the importance of energy return on investment (EROI) as a useful metric for assessing long-term viability of energy-dependent systems. Here, focuses on the methods, applications, and analyses for determining EROI for solar power and solar energy technologies.
