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.

Epishine rocked the Silicon Viking’s finale

6 March, 2018

For the first time Sweden will be represented at the Startup World Cup global finals in San Francisco. Silicon Vikings is partnering with Startup World Cup to choose the winning company that will be chosen to represent Sweden in the finals.

Tonight Silicon Vikings arranged the Swedish final from where the winner goes directly to the Startup World Cup final in San Fransisco. Epishine was celebrated as a top-3 company but was overthrown by “Coala Life” in terms of first place.

Intel says that the main concern the jury had to Epishine was that it sounded too good to be true.

Thanks Vice President Maroš Šefčovič for listening to us!

23 February, 2018

Earlier this week we were at the EU Commission in Brussels to discuss what the EU can do to best support us as cleantech entrepreneurs together with Vice President Maroš Šefčovič and other cleantech entrepreneurs. It was interesting to hear what the EU is already planning to do to make it easier for us to reach the European market, we are happy that political leaders take our ideas into account and for what the EU is already doing for us for example through the EU accelerator Climate KIC.
