Swedish Sunlab

GSE builds the demonstration plant Swedish Sunlab where the company's most recent test unit of the solar collector will be showcased. The Swedish Sunlab will have installed a complete heating system in the form of storage tank and radiators. There are also lithium-ion batteries in the system which allows for storage of electrical energy generated by the solar collector. The plant can thus be used both on-and off-grid. Stay tuned for updates!

GSE would like to thank everybody for a very inspiring 2010!

Global Sun Engineering (GSE) would like to thank everybody who has helped us in our work during 2010, as well as all our new contacts with interesting people and companies. Following below is a short resume of what GSE has achieved during 2010.

During 2010 GSE has done a lot of progress in the product development, and the process of going from the beta-version to the commercial version has begun. These steps have taken GSE a lot closer to the commercial launch during the second quarter of 2012.

During the past year GSE has done two deliveries of the Matarenki Light. The first was delivered during the spring 2010 to Lund University, and the second to Tampere University of Applied Science during the fall 2010.

In September GSE took part in Stockholm Cleantech Venture Day (SCVD), where GSE was one out of 25 selected cleantech companies, who got to pitch the company to potential investors, collaborates and other interests. GSE received very good feedback from everybody we got in contact with. Several of whom GSE still remains in contact with. In addition to SCVD, GSE was one of the main speakers at NoE-Energy conference in Oulu, Finland. GSEs CEO, Björn Eklöv, talked about how it is possible to build a new industry around solar energy in northern Sweden. A lot of interesting and good contacts were taken during the NoE-Energy conference.

An interview with GSE was published in Recharge News the 17th of December 2010. The article focused on Matarenki Lights benefits of producing both electricity and heat, as well as its easy plug-and-play concept. The article is also available at

GSE view towards 2011 with great excitement. We are aiming towards closing the first production and distribution agreement in southern Europe during 2011. We are also very excited to continue our close discussion with potential collaborates, and hope that we can begin collaborations during 2011.

With this short resume of some of the things GSE has accomplished during 2010, we at GSE would like to wish everybody a Happy New Year and we are looking forward to a very exciting 2011!


Best regards, 

The GSE Team
