As is tradition, the next ISES Solar World Congress - SWC 2025 - was announced during the closing ceremony of SWC 2023 on November 04 in New Delhi, India.
SWC 2025 will take place in November 2025 in Fortaleza, Brazil. The congress will be organized by ABENS, the Brazilian Section of ISES and will be supported by the University of Sao Paulo, the Federal University of Santa Catarina and the Federal Universiy of Ceará.
The congress will take palce in the city of Fortaleza, the capital of Ceará, a Northeastern state of Brazil. Fortaleza is the fourth-largest city in the country, and it has become an important technological hub in recent years. The state of Ceará has been attracting significant governmental and private investments, both national and international, in technology, innovation, and R&D, especially in telecommunications, renewable energy, and, more recently, green hydrogen. In 2011, the first photovoltaic power plant in Brazil was installed in the city of Tauá, 342 km southwest of Fortaleza. Today the state of Ceará has more than 1.5 GW of solar photovoltaic and 2.5 GW of wind power, with some large installations close enough to Fortaleza to eventually organize field trips after the congress. The state is also tipped to be the green hydrogen center in Brazil. Besides the technological and modern aspects of the city of Fortaleza and the state of Ceará, the participants of the congress will be presented with magnificent nature, a rich culture, and outstanding gastronomy.
