In 1970 solar research pioneers met at the first International Solar Energy Society (ISES) Conference in Melbourne Australia. ISES is commemorating this Conference with a special 50th Anniversary Conference and Display, called the Solar World Congress at 50 (SWC50), to be held in Melbourne Australia from 2-4 December 2020
The SWC50 highlights the transformation in the global energy sector that has taken place since the first ISES Solar World Congress in 1970 and looks forward to the next 50 years when renewable energy will be the major cornerstone of the global energy system. The Conference will be about the people: researchers, industry players, policy makers, and leaders from NGOs and non-profits who have all contributed to make renewable energy the fastest growing contributor to our global energy supply.
The SWC50 will comprise of:
- A welcome reception the night before the conference;
A conference with invited speakers and panellists who will:
- Look back over the past 50 years of solar energy development – technical and policy;
- Show the link between the scientists/research and industry; and
- Based on this progress and experience, look forward to what is required within the next 50 years to move towards a global 100% Renewable Energy (RE) target.
A display focusing on the stories of solar from the past 50+ years and visions for the next 50 years through the eyes of:
- Institutions (research laboratories and universities);
- NGOs and Non-profit organizations:
- Industry; and
- Individuals being recognised in the exhibition through the Renewable Energy Pioneers display;
- Gala Dinner;
- Tours after the conference; and
- Development of a Commemorative Booklet called The Century of Solar- Stories and Visions for the Future of Renewable Energy.
