The Sustainable Energy Society of Southern Africa or SESSA, is a non profit organisation (Reg. No.: 037-484NPO). SESSA is dedicated to the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Renewable energy technologies include all solar-based energies such as photovoltaics, thermal heating and cooling, wind, biomass and hydro, to name a few. Other utilization possibilities of this principle source of energy are in passive building design and energy efficiency.
The inter-disciplinary nature of SESSA attracts the membership of industry, scientists, researchers, developers and the general public – the only qualification is a keen interest in renewable energy and its utilization to ensure a sustainable energy future.
SESSA was founded in 1964 and is one of 50 National Sections of the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). ISES is regarded as the premier body in solar energy with members in over 100 countries. SESSA is the duly appointed African office of ISES. SESSA was previously called the Solar Energy Society of South Africa.
