Integrated agent-based and artificial neural networks model for solar PV adoption. • The agents' adoption process is characterised using past experiences. • Spatio-temporally explicit estimations for up to five months with accuracy of 80%. • Integrated ABM and ANN model has adaptive capabilities over other diffusion models. • Income, electricity usage and average household size variables yield best results.
