Becquerel Prize 2021

Becquerel Prize 2021 - Award Ceremony

The Alexandre Edmund Becquerel Prize was established in 1989 by the European Commission on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Becquerel’s classical experiment in which he discovered the photovoltaic effect. Its purpose is to honour scientific, technical or managerial merit in the development of photovoltaic solar energy, attained over a long period of continuous achievements, or very exceptionally, for some extraordinary invention or discovery. It is primarily a European Award but not restricted exclusively to European citizens.


The Becquerel Prize 2021 will be awarded in September on the occasion of the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) in Lisbon, Portugal.
