Instituto Cervantes and CEBE (Spanish Scientists in Belgium) organize a round table to discuss the potential of solar energy. They will host a set of panellists who will give us an insight on the matter from an artistic, social and scientific point of view. Thanks to Ruben Salgado’s photographies– which will be part of the first photo festival Brassage Photographique in Villiers- they will be able to realize the lives of inhabitants of remote areas who, for the first time, have access to electricity through the power of solar energy.
Photovoltaic cells are devices that convert the energy of light directly into electricity. Maxime Defour – who does a PhD on this subject at VUB- will introduce the state-of-the-art for low-cost solar cells such as organic solar cells.
