ISES Solar Energy Museum
To highlight the many individuals, research institutes, companies, NGOs and many more who made solar what it is today - a booming global industry - ISES created this virtual museum to celebrate all these achievements on occasion of the celebratory ISES SWC at 50 special event in December 2020. This virtual museum will allow research institutes, companies and individuals to tell their stories about how they helped develop an industry that has grown from watts to gigawatts.
Starting all the way back in the 1950s, the virtual museum presents important actors, research, inventions, historical events, displays of early products and solar records from every decade as well as the many individual solar and renewable energy pioneers that pathed the way for the industry to grow to what we know it to be today.

A detailed timeline for the ISES history that can be found at the entrance to the Museum underscores many of the key achievements in solar. The Museum also has a rich collection of video materials and other media which bring to life people and events of the solar community.
