Date of publication: May 3, 2012

Abstract:

Public understanding and acceptance are recognized as critical issues shaping the successful implementation of renewable energy technologies like solar photovoltaic energy (SPV). Yet, this faces multiple challenges from low awareness and misperceptions to the lack of communication and reference background providing effective clues to prospect users. This presentation discusses how market research helped clients developing the first SPV venture in Brazil by identifying the public's myths and concerns, and testing reactions to their key communication tool: a solar eco-label.
