Renewable Energy Pioneers
On occasion of SWC50, the organizers were pleased to launch a call for individuals to either appoint themselves or to appoint others as Renewable Energy Pioneers and to be listed in the celebratory booklet. By the start of the SWC50 virtual conference in December 2020, a total of 283 research profiles of research and industry pioneers have been submitted. This will be ISES’ way of acknowledging the many people who have made this industry what it is today.
Without the efforts of individual researchers, system designers, system installers, business leaders, policy makers and those within the donor community, the renewable energy industry would not have grown from Watts to Gigawatts in the last 50 years.
