Practical projects and initiatives are the lifeblood of a dynamic Society! The ISES activities in this area address issues impacting the uptake of renewable energy technologies world-wide and issues like climate change and energy access - by bringing together local and international perspectives, by encouraging the transfer of information and good practices, by promoting interaction and learning. The Society helps to raise awareness, change policy, stimulate industry, improve quality control and generally promotes the wider use of Renewable Energy Sources (RES). In this way ISES provides synergy in the areas of high-tech, business, development of rural infrastructure and sustainable project practice. One primary goal of ISES projects - providing an enduring benefit to the membership of ISES.
