Solar-e is a global business that promotes the use of solar energy and energy efficient architecture through six key areas: communication, information, education, innovation, design and action.

All forms of renewable energy (biomass, biofuel, geothermal, hydroelectricity, solar, tidal, wave and wind) originate directly or indirectly from the sun. Solar-e’s mission is to contribute to the relationship between renewable energy and the built environment with the aim of promoting global sustainability.

We aim to facilitate the communication of ideas to create interest and curiosity. We cultivate new ways of collectiveness and cooperation by sharing our information and networking expertise with like-minded people and organisations. We encourage you to join the conversation through our global online community, forum, ask an expert, and commenting on our various blogs.

We provide information and encourage the dissemination of knowledge. Knowledge is a powerful tool that will promote the positive change needed for global sustainability. Solar-e is a portal for the latest news for your region of the world: Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, North America and South America.

Education and continual learning is the cornerstone of our vision for a sustainable future. Our directory will link you to educational websites for children and university programs from around the world. We have also established our own educational resources with our schools outreach program and our online education courses/workshops.

We encourage the search for and the promotion of viable, innovative solutions. We achieve this through connecting innovators and inventors with viable ideas with researchers, financiers and project managers to develop their ideas and bring them to the market place.
