Ride for the Climate and ASES

ASES is proud to continue a partnership with Climate Ride (climateride.org), an organization that helps raise money through sport, for projects focusing on issues such as climate change and clean energy.

Please consider participating in one of the hiking or cycling events and the Independent Challenge program, and join the solar riders who have already pledged their fundraising to support ASES programs. Read more about Climate Ride in the May/June issue of SOLAR TODAY.


Connecting Emerging Professionals

ASES is also partnering with Dayaway and the Green Program to host renewable energy professional development events all over the country. To kick off, ASES and the Green Program sponsored an Emerging Sustainability Leaders Soiree on April 9, 2015, at the Impact Hub in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

    ASES’s presents was stronger this year, 2105, at Intersolar North America. More needs to be done in awareness of ASES and the contribution ASES makes, can make, and has made to the solar industry. Carly, however, cannot do it all nor the small support staff. Intersolar appears to have integrated ASES into its structure. ASES needs to do more to ‘market’ itself back into the structure of solar companies. Both ASES and Intersolar need each other; however, a case needs to be provided to those faced with an ever fading bottom line showing the benefits of what even a small encouragement with funds or volunteer assistance will do.

    Thanks Dale! Glad you found our presentations interesting. Agreed, more needs to done to raise awareness of all of the great programming we do for the solar community.

    This can be done by joining ASES, donating to ASES, volunteering for ASES, attending the SOLAR 2015 conference next week at Penn State, organizing a local tour in the national solar tour, putting a site on the tour, attending the tour, and subscribing to SOLAR TODAY. We need everyone’s support to continue to fulfill our mission to speed the transition to renewables.
