European Becquerel Prize for Outstanding Merits in Photovoltaics

The European Becquerel Prize for Outstanding Merits in Photovoltaics is being awarded on the occasion of the EU PVSEC Conference. This prize was established by the European Commission in 1989 to mark the 150th anniversary of Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel’s discovery of the photovoltaic effect in 1839, which laid the foundation of both, photovoltaics and photography.

Becquerel Prize 2017 Winner

Dr. Stefan Nowak, Director NET Ltd., Switzerland is the Becquerel Prize winner 2017.

He receives the award in honour of his merits in the field of integration of photovoltaic electricity into future energy supply systems. The decision of the Becquerel Prize Committee is based in particular on his outstanding activities in the development and management of international PV research, innovation and implementation programmes. Dr. Nowak is one of the leading strategists and promoters of targeted European and global cooperation on PV research, market assessment and deployment. To be especially highlighted are his long-lasting activities as coordinator of the “Solar European Research Area Network” and chair of the International Energy Agency’s “Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme”. His leadership, comprehensive but precise analyses and inspiring argumentation in strategic and institutional discussions have strongly contributed to the global credibility of photovoltaics as a basis of future energy systems.

Stefan Nowak is an experimental physicist by training with a PhD from Fribourg University and EPFL, Switzerland. His academic research activities covered thermonuclear fusion, plasma and surface physics as well as thin films. His biography is characterised by a continuous evolution from research to technology management involving aspects of advanced research in different areas of energy, materials and processing. He has a broad technological expertise with complementary experience in communication, technology management and policy. Stefan has been working in renewable energy and energy efficiency for more than 25 years with a particular focus and expertise in photovoltaic (PV) solar electricity. Covering the full PV value chain from research to the market, including policy and communication, he is an expert and advisor to many different national and international organisations. 20 years ago, he founded NET Nowak Energy & Technology Ldt., a consultancy specialized in renewable energy, energy and resource efficiency. Stefan serves as a program manager for the Swiss PV RTD programme, coordinator of various PV related EU projects with more than 20 EU ministries and agencies (http://www.solar-era.net) as well as chairman of the International Energy Agency’s photovoltaic technology cooperation programme (IEA PVPS, http://www.iea-pvps.org), one of the largest of its kind within the IEA. The responsibility for this programme over the past 15 years has led to a large network, numerous contacts, experiences and travels related to PV technology and deployment in all 5 continents.
