Press: We believe in a better world

19 February, 2018

The Swedish bank “Handelsbanken” has published an interview with Epishine’s CEO, Mattias Josephson, in their printed private banking magazine “Conversations” where he states that he believes in a better world, that Epishine’s fully organic solar cells are unique, that it’s important to be passionated about what you do, that he is looking forward to when Epishine’s first large-scale factory for production of organic solar cells is up and running and that its an advantage to be an idealist if you don’t want to go with the big stream.

Press: Epishine breakthrough

8 February, 2018

Right now you can read about a break through in OPV manufacturing by Linköping University in the science press, comercialized by Epishine.

The breakthrough constitutes the basis for our patent-pending solution to manufacture fully organic solar cells in a high-speed roll-to-roll process where two plastic films, covered by the active material, is laminated together. Since only two to three layers are to be printed, the number of defects is lower and the probability that two defects are located exactly opposite each other during the lamination is negligible.

Tempmeter

New demo product

19 December, 2017

We’re very proud of our latest physical demo of Indoor Energy Harvesting. We’ve designed a temperature meter with a sensor and an LCD-display powered only with one of our Indoor Energy Harvesting Modules.

The purpose with the demo is to show that our plastic pieces are able to harvest normal low-energy lighting, replacing the batteries in sensors etc.

As you might see we still manufacture some parts by hand – which results in some small “wrinkles” in the module. Soon we will start full industrial manufacturing of the modules.
