The International Student Energy Summit is more than just a conference - it is a movement.


It starts here.

With the increase of energy scarcity, global development, geopolitical tension, and environmental damage, the energy crisis is the biggest challenge that our modern world faces. What we do now will forever define the energy landscape of the future.

Our world is entering into a global energy transition, and students have the exciting opportunity to make their contribution. Students are the next researchers, CEOs, politicians, and industry experts. The global community is asking students to stand up and voice their ideas, making it clear that what students do today can have lasting effects on generations to come.

ISES is advocating a collective way to examine the problem. The energy problem is too big to solely weigh on the shoulders of economists, or scientists, or CEOs. The only way to solve this global issue is through an integrated approach. In order to solve the problem, we need to examine the technological, social and economic components. The goal of ISES is to use students to carry out a new integrated perspective, comprising of these three components (technological, economic, social) and placing equal importance to all three areas in the hopes of breeding innovate ideas to solve the complex problem. By bringing together students from different regions around the world from different academic disciplines, we are setting the platform for multidisciplinary thought creation and global cooperation.

ISES is taking a realistic approach to contribute to the energy crisis. The conference will invite the current leaders in energy to offer their experience and expertise with the goal of informing students of the most relevant issues and developments taking place right now in the sector.

ISES believes that building a sustainable energy system is not an altruistic concept - it is the one that can lead to more profitable businesses, stronger economies, safer communities, and healthier people. Students today have the rare opportunities to pioneer a sustainable energy landscape for the future. Join the ISES movement and together we will fuel the future of energy.
