Who we are?
LSES was established in 22nd of April 1980 in Beirut on the initiative of highly educated engineers and was comprised of solar energy company owners, chairmen of university engineering departments and electrical, mechanical, chemical engineers.
The war in Lebanon from 1975 to 1990 and its economic consequences were a major hindrance to the development of solar energy in Lebanon as well as most of the technical and educational activities, although the development of the Society continued moderately.
LSES currently has around 60 members with a main target to promote the use of solar & renewable energy with consideration for the protection of the environment, energy saving, and the quality of life..
