Since the first summit in 2009, SES has been hosted around the world from Canada to Norway, bringing students together to learn and connect with institutions ready to support students on their sustainable energy careers. The Summit has launched young innovators into some of the world’s most pressing challenges, like energy policy, energy access, and financing the low-carbon transition.
