Pollux (Swartsjö, Sweden), one of Epishine’s (Linköping, Sweden) first customers, which already has two light-powered products on the market, is now revealing a new product in the Hadar family: “Hadar Cold”, a connected sensor for sub-zero temperatures. The sensor is designed to help preserve, extend, and ensure the shelf life of refrigerated products, without the maintenance cost for replacing batteries.
Epishine (Linköping, Sweden) and Optiqo (Linköping, Sweden) are cooperating to optimise Optiqo's QlvrBox, which currently operates on batteries, enabling the device to be installed independently of the facility’s infrastructure. This feature offers a great benefit when installing the boxes, however the batteries need to be replaced every 1-3 years. The new version of QlvrBox is developed using Epishine's light energy harvesting solution, and is thus powered by ordinary indoor lighting.
Solliance partners TNO, imec/EnergyVille and the Eindhoven University of Technology, realised an 18.6% efficient highly near infrared transparent perovskite solar cell. When combined in a four terminal tandem configuration with an efficient Panasonic crystalline silicon (c-Si) cell or with a Miasolé flexible CIGS cell, it delivers new record power conversion efficiencies of 28.7% and 27.0%, respectively.
