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: 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.

Press: Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) writes about Epishine

5 July, 2017

Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) writes an editorial about Epishine and the cluster of organic electronics companies gathered in East Sweden.

Some translated quotes:

“I promise you. A regular working week in Norrköping means more than the political weeks in Almedalen and Järvafältet together.”

“Did you know that Sweden is the world leader in printed electronics? Where we used to etch circuit boards with hazardous chemicals and severe environmental damage, one can now print electronics in machines reminiscent of old paper prints. The product is literally leafy and flexible, manufactured at a quarter of the cost and almost without impact on the environment.”

“And if you list the most promising Swedish entrepreneurs, at least three companies in printed electronics will be in the top layer.” – DP Patterning, Epishine and InviSense.

“All three come from Norrköping, and are part of a local cluster of companies that grow within printed electronics. They will change your everyday lives more than Social Democratic Minister Mikael Damberg’s all seminars during politics week.”

SvD is a daily multi–channel newspaper with Sweden’s second largest circulation per day.
