About Us 

A consulting company with a unique positioning at the crossroads of research, market and industry.

Some 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”.

200 years later, PV covers more than 6% of the world electricity demand, a number expected to rise faster in the coming years and decades.​

Our Founders

The Becquerel Institute was founded in 2014 by Gaëtan Masson (picture) and Adel El Gammal, two well-known experts involved in PV development for years, who shifted from the financial sector.

The Becquerel Institute combines the strength of a consulting company and a dedicated research centre focusing on the ecosystem of solar photovoltaics.

Today the company is composed of a young and dynamic team and is active worldwide, with partners and customers on 4 continents (Europe, Asia, Africa and Americas).
