Epishine, a pioneering Swedish energy impact company, has announced the launch of their new solar cell factory with a capacity of one hundred million modules per year. This expansion into a larger state-of-the-art roll-to-roll facility is a direct result of the growing market interest across industries and a wide range of applications.
Dracula Technologies (Valence, France), a pioneer in energy harvesting through indoor light, announces its new “Green MicroPower Factory“—a state-of-the-art, fully automated facility. The largest of its kind in Europe (2500m²), this factory will produce up to 150 million cm² of organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices per year, using inkjet printing to simultaneously lower costs and increase customization. Dracula Technologies’ new facility will cater to high-volume IoT customers from early 2024, while also preparing to license its groundbreaking technology.
In a groundbreaking move toward advancing smart building solutions, industry leaders Sally R (Västerås, Sweden) a pioneer in smart building control, leading sensor supplier ELSYS (Umea, Sweden), and indoor solar cell manufacturer Epishine (Linköping, Sweden) have joined forces to provide a complete solution. The collaboration is simplifying sustainable building practices, where all aspects of smart building management are taken into consideration. Importantly, this partnership underscores indoor solar cells as a pivotal power source for sensors, marking a new era in building optimisation.
