"SOLAR 20/20: Renewable Energy Vision" Conference Brings Together Perspectives

BOULDER, Colo., June 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The world has changed, and we must change with it, but our ultimate goal - a world run on clean, renewable energy - remains the same. What can we do together to ensure that the current global pandemic doesn't slow, but actually accelerates the transition to a clean energy world? What can we do to better integrate and connect concerns about social, economic and racial injustice with our ongoing efforts to improve access to clean air, clean water and clean energy for all? These are key questions that will be addressed throughout the American Solar Energy Society's (ASES) first virtual conference, SOLAR 20/20: Renewable Energy Vision, on June 24 and 25. Register now at ases.org/conference.

A key aspect of achieving the renewable energy vision is gaining public support for actions and policies that will rapidly advance the transformation to 100% renewables. During the kickoff session of the conference, the Stronger Together Town Hall, representatives from a wide array of organizations involved in advocacy and policy making will highlight how we can better work together to grow our constituencies and strengthen our movement to realize our common goals. The two conference keynote sessions, Clear Vision for Worldwide Action and Citizen Action, will then bring together diverse perspectives on global and national climate actions aimed at drawing together policymakers, leaders in all sectors, and advocates to spur change.

The conference will feature discussions on advances in buildings, including presentations from 2020 Solar Decathlon decathletes, systems integration, PV, solar thermal, and storage. Other sessions at SOLAR 20/20 will feature discussions on clean energy education, policy, and finance. Special forums include the longstanding Women in Solar Energy (WISE) Forum highlighting women who are leading and inspiring others across the solar industry space, the Emerging Professionals Forum connecting young people new to the renewable workforce through networking opportunity, as well as the Spirit and Sustainability Community Forum in which everyone is invited to share their thoughts about how we can move toward a cleaner, healthier, and more equitable society as efficiently, safely, and quickly as possible.
