Solar Energy Evolution and Diffusion Studies (SEEDS)

Solar photovoltaic panels are an increasingly competitive player in the energy market as the technology improves and the prices drop. The challenge of widespread diffusion is now behavioral as much as economic.

Through large-scale experimentation, SEEDS is testing which strategies and messages are most conducive to solar adoption. This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO).
