ISES Conferences

ISES Solar World Congress

The ISES Solar World Congress, held biennially since the 1950's embodies the spirit of international networking and exchange of ideas advanced by the Society. Its objective is to maintain communication between the research community, industrial and political players. Click here to read more about past ISES Solar World Congresses.

The next ISES Solar World Congress will be held in Daegu, Korea from 8 - 12 November, 2015.

More information about the Congress are available soon on the Congress website

ISES Regional Conferences

Regional Conferences promote the widespread application of solar energy technology. To steer development for all countries in a sustainable direction it is vital to strongly emphasize the application of solar energy within overall development strategies. Positive research results, successful marketing strategies and new, economically viable products are more likely to be quickly achieved and widely distributed in an environment where the exchange of information and experience is fully realised. ISES sees itself in this context as a focal point, providing a network within which different groups can exchange knowledge and obtain technical and scientific expertise.

ISES Asia Pacific 2014 - Grand Renewable Energy Conference & Exhibition
27 July - 1 August 2014
Tokyo, Japan

The importance of the renewable energy technology has been growing significantly since the beginning of the 21st century and will continue throughout this century.

Thus, it is our great pleasure to inform you that we are organizing Grand Renewable Energy 2014 (GRE2014) international conference, which follows the two conferences of RE2006 and RE 2010 held in Japan. The Organizing Committee will carry out extensive activities for the success of GRE2014 with our continuous slogan “Advanced Technology Paths to Global Sustainability”. Many prominent experts and organizations concerned with renewable energy participate in the committee, in the fields of academia, industry, and government, not only in Japan but also from the various countries of the world.

Expectations have been growing worldwide for renewable energy technologies as a solution for energy and global environment issues; issues projected to become more evident and serious during the 21st century. According to some long-term projections, renewable energy may satisfy half of the world’s energy needs by 2050. This would put renewable energy on the same level of importance as conventional energy. Moreover, more aggressive forecasts predict that renewable energy might supply two-thirds of the world’s energy by 2100.

We, the specialists involved in the field of renewable energy technologies today, should accept this challenge and respond to these ambitious targets this century. Doing so will influence our direction and quality of life in the future. Knowing that renewable energy is a peaceful energy resource present everywhere on earth should inspire us to further its development and dissemination. At this important time in history, you are invited to contribute to the progress of renewable energy technologies. You can learn about the latest cutting edge technologies at GRE2014. This conference is a joint event organized together with the International Solar Energy Society-Asia Pacific.

The international conference will be held at Tokyo Big Sight from July 27 – August 1, 2014. In parallel, a world exhibition will be open for three days from July 30. Tokyo Big Sight is located within easy access from both Haneda and Narita International Airports.

We, as the organizing committee, welcome all participants, not only those presenting papers but also those just interested in listening and discussing. We assuredly provide all of you with the sharing of innovative information on the latest trends of smart renewable energy development for the 21st century which is linked with global economy growth.

EuroSun 2014
16 - 19 September 2014
Aix-les-Bains, France

Solar energy and solar buildings are fundamental pillars to achieving a transition to a renewable energy society. While Europe is 6 years from 2020 when the binding targets of the 3x20 will be evaluated, technologies under development today should be common place in this horizon.

To bring light to the latest developments, the scientific and organizing committees warmly invite you to Aix-les-Bains, France to participate in EuroSun 2014, a European solar energy conference, organised jointly by ISES Europe and INES.

Leading scientists, engineers, architects, and representatives from industry and business will be present to discuss the latest research results, technological developments and business opportunities in solar energy.

EuroSun 2014 will be the place to discuss the achievement and the potential of solar energy, but also to show some innovative technologies.

Of course, there will also be social events, where you will have the opportunity to network and discuss further economical, technological and scientific development of solar and building technologies, but also to meet old friends and make new contacts.

To participate in this exciting event, we invite you to submit your 2-page, extended abstract by March 14, 2014.

We look forward to seeing you in Aix-Les-Bains!
