Chair of IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems TCP honoured in Amsterdam
Dr Stefan Nowak was awarded the European Becquerel Prize for Outstanding Merits in Photovoltaics at the EU PV Conference in Amsterdam. This prize, established by the European Commission in 1989, was awarded to Dr Nowak in honour of his significant contributions in the field of integration of solar photovoltaic electricity into the global energy system.
Dr Nowak is well recognised for his longstanding commitment to the promotion of European and global cooperation on PV research, market assessment and deployment. In particular, the prize also rewards Dr Nowak’s long-lasting activities as Chair of the Executive Committee of the IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Technology Collaboration Programme (PVPS TCP) since 2001. The PVPS TCP aims to promote the role of energy from solar PV technologies as a cornerstone in the transition to sustainable energy systems. It conducts a variety of collaborative projects relevant to solar PV technologies and systems.
