Why Should Students Attend SOLAR 2024?

ASES is committed to furthering the professional development of students and other people starting out in the renewable energy and sustainability industries through providing educational and networking opportunities. Our goal is for our students and emerging professionals to be involved in SOLAR 2024 through scholarships and internships, as well as presenting, attending, or volunteering. We want students to be empowered to be a part of the renewable energy and sustainability industries. During the conference, students will be able to:

  • Discover what’s next in solar policy, microgrid resilience planning, and workforce development.
  • Share and discuss successful skills to assist you in your personal and professional lives.
  • Grow your network and connect with fellow ASES members who are industry peers, technical experts, educators, and overall supporters of a 100% renewable energy world!
