Established in 1954, ASES is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that advocates for sustainable living and 100% renewable energy by sharing information, events and resources to cultivate community and power progress.

We integrate the perspectives of science, industry, policy and citizens. We believe knowledge and community are a powerful combination for change. Our members look to us to sustain the culture required to achieve a 100% renewable energy future.

Through our programs, Solar Today magazine, ASES Solar Conferences, ASES National Solar Tour, and Tiny Watts, we engage individuals, businesses and partnering groups to advance these possibilities.

The ASES SOLAR 20/20 National Organizing Committee (NOC) has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely. After much deliberation, the NOC has ultimately decided to convert the live event in Washington D.C. into a virtual event to ensure the safety and health of our attendees and speakers. We have found an interactive platform where important discussions, networking, community building can take place. See our current sponsorship opportunities and contact sales@ases.org if you are interested in sponsoring SOLAR 20/20.
