EU PVSEC Student Awards
Clarissa Debiazi Zomer, a student at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), completed her foreign student PhD period at the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) with her award-winning work at the 28th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC 2013), held from September 30 to October 4 in Paris. His work, voted best in the “Photovoltaic Systems” category, is entitled “The Balance between Aestherics and Performance in Building-integrated Photovoltaics in the Tropics” (C. Zomer, A. Nobre, P. Cassatella, T. Reindl and R . Rüther) with co-authors from SERIS and UFSC, Dr. Thomas Reindl, his advisor at SERIS and the PhD. Ricardo Rüther, his advisor at UFSC.

The Brazilian finalist work that competed for the prize with projects from Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, was 'Development of a method to estimate the energy consumption of commercial buildings through applications of neural networks' by graduate student Ana Paula Melo (LabEEE /UFSC). Ana Paula competed with 23 other candidates from all over Brazil.
