Brief History of ANZSES

Baverstock, G (2004) Brief History of ANZSES. In: 42nd Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Solar Energy Society (ANZSES 2004), 30 November - 3 December, Perth, Western Australia



Since volunteering to write, coordinate and edit a 50 year history for ISES at the 2001 Solar World Congress ANZSES committee meeting, Garry Baverstock proceeded on a worthwhile journey of discovery and re-discovery of the history of the organization. This journey lasted for 3 years and added to as well as enhanced his perception of events and people involved in solar energy who also had an active role in the Society. Many of the pioneers of solar energy, in Australia, were known personally to the author, as he was involved as an office bearer during the early 1980’s. It was an active era when ANZSES became fully incorporated. It was a unique period of innovation and embryonic beginnings of the renewable energy industry.
The paper traces the approach, the methodology, as well presenting a short version that picks out the main highlights of the history. It also recommends what needs to be done to maximize the exposure of the document and how it can be a valuable promotional resource for ANZSES on the internet.
