ISES Solar World Congress 2023

Date: 30 October - 04 November 

Location: New Delhi, India

Taking place in New Delhi, India, from 30 October - 04 November 2023, the ISES Solar World Congress will provide a forum for scientists and researchers, engineers, architects, and representatives from industry and business to present and discuss their latest findings, developments and perspectives. SWC was in India in 1978 for the largest conference up to now and we are thrilled to come back to India this year. India has proven remarkable global leadership in solar energy development and pursues ambitious plans to further move towards a renewable future, impressively scaling up solar energy use.

The SWC 23 will offer a dedicated programme including plenary sessions, keynote addresses, technical oral and poster sessions, workshops, technical tours, special events for young researchers as well as social events where you will have the opportunity to network, meet old friends and to make new ones. ISES SWC 2023 will give you a chance to present your work, meet researchers, developers and industry and government representatives, and send you home inspired and motivated to continue moving the world towards 100% renewable energy.
