Awards for the best Visual Presentations 2019

Considered as one of the main features of the Conference the most outstanding visual presentations of each session have been awarded on Friday, 13 September 2019, during the Closing Session. A jury of experts judges the quality of the contents reported and the quality of the presentation.

New this year!: Aiming to increase the visibility of poster awards winners and as a recognition to the quality of their presentation, the winners had the opportunity to perform a 5 minutes presentation to the poster area audience during the closing visual session on Thursday 12 September from 17:00 to 18:30. Winning posters were moved to the “winners wall” in the poster area and there where the presentations took place.

Same as in previous years, the awards were delivered as part of the Conference Closing on Friday, 13 September 2019.

Congratulations to the Poster Award Winners!

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.

Congratulations to the Becquerel Prize Winner 2019: Pierre Verlinden!

The Becquerel Prize 2019 is awarded topierre verlinden web

Dr. Pierre Verlinden
Consultant, Non-Executive Director to PV companies, Visiting Professor at Sun Yat-sen University (Guangzhou).

He receives the award in honour of his scientific and technological merits in the development of high-efficiency photovoltaics. The decision of the Becquerel Committee is based on the outstanding work of Dr. Verlinden on the design of high-efficiency solar cells, modules and systems including back contact and rear side passivated silicon solar cells.

Throughout his career, Dr. Verlinden has pioneered the development of advanced solar cell structures, not limiting his work to just scientific progress but focusing on feasible implementation for industrial mass production. This combination of deep scientific understanding and his contributions to the global PV industry makes his work unique for the progress of photovoltaics over the last 40 years. He has been very active in the global photovoltaic scientific community, serving on numerous scientific boards. Committed to education and teaching for decades, Dr. Verlinden has passed on his great passion and deep knowledge of photovoltaics to generations of young scientists as well as manufacturing engineers.

 


Award Ceremony

The prize was awarded at the opening of this year’s European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference, in Marseille, on Monday 09. September 2019.

Congratulations to the Becquerel Prize Winner 2018: Peter Wuerfel!

BecquerelPrizeWinner 1 web

The Becquerel Prize 2018 is awarded to Prof. Peter Wuerfel, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany.

Prof. Wuerfel receives the Becquerel Prize 2018 in recognition of his fundamental contribution to the theory of photovoltaic energy conversion. His theoretical approach is characterized by a consistent application of thermodynamic concepts: electrochemical potentials for modelling processes in the absorber material and the chemical potential of light - deduced from the generalization of Planck’s radiation law – for characterizing the absorbed solar radiation and the emitted luminescent radiation of solar cells.

By providing a deeper understanding of photovoltaic energy conversion, the work of Prof. Wuerfel has significantly influenced the development of technologies like selective contacts or tools like the luminescence analysis of solar cells.

Prof. Wuerfel presented the physical/thermodynamic principles of direct solar electric energy conversion in his highly regarded book ”Physics of Solar Cells”. This book has imparted a physics-based knowledge on the functionality of solar cells to almost a whole generation of scientists and has paved the way for new photovoltaic technologies.


Award Ceremony

The Prize has been awarded at the opening of this year’s European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference, Brussels, 24. September 2018.

On the occasion of this ceremony Dr. Wuerfel delivered a key note speech "Selectivity is the Essence of Solar Cells".
