Abstract

Solar energy has sustained incredible technological advancement for several decades, driving down costs to allow rapid deployment of photovoltaic (PV) technology. However, public perception and understanding of these advancements is hard-pressed to keep up. The pace of information dissemination will become a limiting factor, in that public policy and practices will act on outdated information regarding PV tech. The PV community must engage in science communication and education practices appropriate for the new digital age to ensure a continued, increasing pace of PV deployment. To that end, the authors have created a podcast, and will share their findings on impact and best practices.
