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.
