Wim Deferme

Prof. dr. ir. Wim Deferme is Senior Lecturer in Engineering Technology at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering Sciences at UHasselt (in collaboration with KULeuven). He is very interested in renewable energy and how it can be used in an innovative way to provide energy in places where it is not so easy. 
With this perspective, he guides yearly master students from the non-profit organization "Students for Energy in Africa" who conduct an energy project in Africa. He has designed biogas installations in Kenya, built windmills in Senegal and set up mini-grids using solar panels in Togo.
