Our mission is to promote the use of solar energy as a clean, renewable, cost-effective way to meet the world’s energy needs. Through research, education, outreach, and collaboration, we work to rapidly expand the use of solar energy technologies and encourage the policy and market innovations needed to realize a solar powered economy. SEREF helps people participate in the process of shaping our shared energy future by providing them with up-to-date policy research and analysis, tools and strategies for increasing access and affordability of solar energy, and the resources needed to build a groundswell of support for a solar powered future. SEREF also helps bridge the perceived technology gap by supporting high-profile solar installations in public areas. We provide our services free-of-charge to a broad spectrum of clientele from across the nation, including the general public, business leaders, policy makers, journalists, opinion leaders, academic institutions, NGOs, and industry.
