Virginie Le Caër
Virginie Le Caër began her professional career in research institutes (CNRS, LIST, EPFL) where she developed innovative products for the automotive, aerospace and solar industries for almost 10 years. Her research focused, among other things, on the development of high solar transmittance coloured glass which are the subject of several patents.
She then joined the private sector as R&D Director to set up and supervise the production of coloured solar glass and photovoltaic panels. She manages the integration of these products in various building projects in Europe. Some of these BIPV (Building Integrated PhotoVoltaics) projects, ranging from the small roof to the facade of more than 6,000 m2 have been rewarded.
A few years later, having developed a taste for the management of solar projects and being convinced that the expansion of the BIPV is one of the keys to the energy transition, she decided to found Esquisse Solaire.
