David Faiman (Israel)

The Global Energy Prize International Award Committee member; Professor Emeritus of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

Professor of Physics and Chairman of the Department of Solar Energy & Environmental Physics at the Blaustein Institutes. Engaged in research in the field of applied solar energy. Faiman’s work attempts to use concentrated sunlight and a solar panel to produce more electricity than believed possible. He and his team designed a reflector that concentrates light so strongly that it can burn organic material, and then directs it at a solar panel that collects and converts it into electricity twice as efficiently as standard panels. Faiman’s team feels this discovery is a way to mass-produce solar energy to be cost competitive with fossil fuels. He is Professor of Physics and Chairman of the Department of Solar Energy & Environmental Physics at the Blaustein Institutes.He is Israel’s representative to the Task 8 Photovoltaic Specialist Committee of the International Energy Agency and co-authored their book, Energy from the Desert: Practical Proposals for Very Large Scale Photovoltaic Systems (James & James, London, 2007).
