A bit of History
Becquerel Institute was founded in 2014 and is named after Mr. Edmond Alexandre Becquerel.
In 1839, Becquerel created the world’s first photovoltaic cell. In this experiment, silver chloride was placed in an acidic solution and illuminated while connected to platinum electrodes, generating voltage and current. Today the “Becquerel Effect” is better known as the “photovoltaic effect”.
Exactly 200 years later, PV covers more than 3% of the world electricity demand, a number expected to rise faster in the coming years and decades.
