Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year 2018!

18. December 2017

We take a moment to reflect back on the highlights of 2017, and feel a sense of great achievement and thanks for all the support from ISES Members and Partners all over the world.

Just under 500 ISES Members and friends gathered in Abu Dhabi for the successful ISES Solar World Congress 2017 together with the IEA SHC Solar Heating and Cooling conference. What a great event! View the photos on the ISES facebook page.

The ISES/Elsevier Renewable Transformation Challenge was launched and we were delighted to announce the winner this August! Watch the webinar on the ISES YouTube channel.

ISES Staff and Board Members attended many events including the Intersolar Europe, North America and Middle East, as well as the UNFCCC SB46, COP23, the World Future Energy Summit and the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue among others.

The distinguished Solar Energy journal continues to thrive with 18 issues in 2017 including 4 special issues.

12 great webinars were organized, including a first Members-only webinar, and regular newsletters and news items were posted on the re-vamped ISES website!

We continuously strive to extend the ISES network and connect with like-minded organizations around the world. Valuable new partnerships were formed this year. Highlights include becoming an accredited observer to the Green Climate Fund, being registered as a donation organization on Amazon Smile and the launch of the Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform

We look forward to the Grand Renewable Energy 2018 conference in Japan and the ISES EuroSun 2018 in Switzerland as well as events by our partners and members this upcoming year. View the ISES events calendar.

In 2018, with the leadership of the newly elected ISES Board of Directors, we will continue to represent your voice for 100% renewable energy with gusto!

We wish you a wonderful and happy holiday season and a New Year 2018 full of peace and joy
