In 2012, the ASES National Solar Conference was held under the same roof with the biennial World Renewable Energy Congress. The combined event was WREF 2012. The conference draws prominent speakers and technical presentations from renewable energy laboratories, installations and industries around the world. WREF 2012 examined how renewable energy technologies address the world’s economic, environmental and security challenges at every scale, from off-grid villages to gigawatt power plants.
The ASES National Solar Tour is the largest grassroots solar event in history. The tour offers participants the opportunity to tour homes and buildings to see how neighbors are using solar energy, energy efficiency and other sustainable technologies to reduce their monthly utility bills and help tackle climate change.
