ASES SOLAR 2023 52nd National Solar Conference Call for participation is OPEN

0

ASES invites you to submit a proposal to be presented at next year’s conference around the theme “Transforming the Energy Landscape for All”. Submissions will be accepted until January 6, 2023.

The American Solar Energy Society (ASES) supports the global initiative that a world equitably transformed into 100% renewable energy is an urgent necessity. Through the ASES National Solar Conference, SOLAR 2023 will raise awareness among the public, institutions and governments about the critical role solar energy plays in the global energy landscape. We must ensure that the access and benefits of clean energy are enjoyed by all communities, especially those who have been deprived of these benefits in the past. ASES invites you to submit a proposal to be presented at next year’s conference around the theme “Transforming the Energy Landscape for All”. Submissions will be accepted until January 6, 2023.

SOLAR 2023: Transforming the Energy Landscape for All will promote ASES’s overall goal of “accelerating equitable solar adoption and sustainable universal living through educating and building community.” The conference will focus on research models, examples and tools for negotiating the challenges of advancing renewable energy following the principles of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI).
