Absolicon Solar Collector AB
Absolicon develops, manufactures and supplies the solar energy systems of the future. Solar concentrators provide increased energy efficiency and produce electricity, heat and steam in the same system. Our contribution to sustainable development for humanity and the environment is a Swedish solar energy system with unique versatility and installations the world over.
We can thank the sun for life on earth. Changes in the world’s energy consumption are necessary for the survival of the planet and sustainable environmental development. Solar concentrators are part of the solution.
The solar radiation from the surface of the sun for one hour provides enough energy to meet the entire world’s energy needs for one year. This provides dizzying opportunities for going from fossil fuels to pure solar energy, and we know how to make use of them.
Absolicon has a unique technology, based on 20 years of research, for extracting energy in different forms using concentrated solar collectors, or solar concentrators. The concentrators help reduce the production costs, while simultaneously providing a high degree of energy efficiency in the form of thermal energy, solar electricity, solar cooling, solar heat and solar steam.
Fossil energy resources are limited. The sun will be shining for a least another 4 billion years. So what are you waiting for? Start the journey to a business that runs on solar energy today.
Absolicon will be the world’s leading supplier of solar concentrators. By developing, manufacturing and selling solar energy systems that generate renewable energy in various forms, we are helping to solve the world’s energy problem.
Absolicon, a sunny journey toward solving the world’s energy problem
Ever since childhood, Absolicon’s founder and CEO Joakim Byström has been fascinated by mathematics and solar energy. At age eleven, he drew his first solar concentrator. This is the story of Absolicon.
Studying engineering physics, researching solar energy and holding the chairmanship of the youth organization, Förbundet Unga Forskare (Union of Youth Researchers), were important steps on the journey toward realizing the dream of generating heat and electricity from sunlight. Joakim also took part in the UN Commission for Sustainable Development panel and initiated the Stockholm Junior Water Prize.
In 2002, the family company Logosol financed a research project on solar concentrators. The project involved a dozen projects, including projects at the Borlänge Technical College, the University of Lund, Uppsala University and the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology. In 2005, the project took a more focused approach with the goal of creating a commercial product.
Absolicon Solar Collector was established in 2007, and work began on full-scale prototypes, including with the support of the Energimyndigheten (Swedish Energy Agency).
Today, Absolicon is a research and growth company with 20 installations on three continents. The next part of the journey in conquering the world with solar concentrators is to establish a distributor network in export markets and make the sales volumes more efficient.
