Press: Article about Epishine from Swedish Energy Agency

15 June, 2018

The Swedish Energy Agency just published a long article about Epishine on its webmagazine Energivärlden (The Energy World).

Some translated quotes:

Heading: Plastic solar cells ready for the market

Preamble: Nano thin layers of plastic solar cells will soon cover our connected things indoors – and eventually cover entire building details outdoors. At least this is solar producer Epishine’s vision when it shortly takes the leap from the lab to production.

At the research level, the technology of organic solar cells has long been promising. Now, the technology is ready to step into the commercial part of the energy industry.

The first commercial application will be relatively small-scale. The idea is that the thin, flexible and portable solar cells will replace batteries in some of the internet of things devices that will be in our homes.

In the next step, Epishine’s goal is to scale up its solar cells for use in building integration.

Our first full-scale machine will be two meters wide and will be able to print out the equivalent power of a small nuclear reactor every month.

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.
