Established in 1954, the nonprofit American Solar Energy Society (ASES) is the nation’s leading association of solar professionals & advocates. ASES is the US Section of the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). Our mission is to inspire an era of energy innovation and speed the transition to a sustainable energy economy.
ASES’s purpose is to continue being a catalyst and a valuable resource in the emergence (and re-evolution) of America’s new energy economy, in a way that deeply values the role of all stakeholders in a collaborative and transparent co-creative process, so that all stakeholders enthusiastically participate in advancing the legacy of solar and renewable energy to enrich the quality of life, indefinitely.
Leading the Renewable Energy Revolution for 61 years
We bring the Solar and Renewable Energy Communities Together with:
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the National Solar Tour. October will be National Solar Tour Month. Go on tour with the American Solar Energy Society! Homeowners and businesses in neighborhoods across the country are opening their doors and to show what they’ve done to slash utility bills and help cut pollution from electric generating plants.
ASES members are scientists, manufacturers, installers and homeowners.
ASES has 61 years of research, including scientific papers from 44 National Solar Conferences, 17 volumes of Advances in Solar Energy, 27 years of SOLAR TODAY magazine articles and dozens of policy reports commissioned by ASES.
The need for renewable energy is clear. Fossil fuels are putting the environment at risk. Fuel costs are volatile while pollution and climate change threaten our security and future. The time for change is now.
