This phase of the SEEDS research (which commenced in October of 2021) will build off of the success of the previous projects that assessed the use of novel behavioral strategies and social interactions to accelerate the deployment of solar energy to both low-and-moderate income households and all households.
This next project is a data-driven analysis of the co-adoption of rooftop solar energy along with energy storage, electric vehicles, and energy efficiency. It involves:
- Detailed analyses with detailed administrative data and waves of campaigns run as randomized field experiments focusing on co-adoption.
- Surveys following the campaigns to develop insight into the effectiveness of different approaches.
- Outreach and dissemination of the key findings to relevant stakeholders, highlighting the key conclusions on the most effective and cost-effective approaches for the deployment of solar energy and related technologies to all communities.
This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO).
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) supports early-stage research and development in three technology areas: photovoltaics (PV), concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP), and systems integration with the goal of improving the affordability, reliability, and domestic benefit of solar technologies on the grid.
