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

ASES invites you to submit a proposal to present 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 to 100% renewable energy is an urgent necessity. Through the ASES National Solar Conference, SOLAR 2023 will elevate public, institutional, and governmental awareness of the critical role solar energy is playing in the global energy landscape. We must ensure that access to and the benefits from clean energy will be enjoyed by all communities, especially those that have been denied those benefits in the past. ASES invites you to submit a proposal to present 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 the ASES overall goal to "accelerate equitable solar adoption and universal sustainable living by educating and building community." The conference will focus on research models, examples and tools for negotiating the challenges to advancing renewables by following justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (JEDI) principles.
