Dyenamo was founded in 2009 by world-known researchers in the field of chemistry-based solar cells at Uppsala University and KTH, Stockholm. The ambition was to create a company that simplified life for researchers and companies working on chemistry-based solar energy conversions. This was confirmed by the definition of a set of cornerstones for the company; i) to provide the latest findings in chemistry-based solar energy conversion to academia and industry, ii) to follow our customers to increased volumes, iii) to specialize in efficiently scaling-up materials in various categories, and iv) to cater to on demand material requests. Over the years, we have stayed true to these cornerstones. The initial products were material-components for dye-sensitized solar cells. When the perovskite solar cells entered the field, Dyenamo was the first company to offer specific chemicals for this technology. Even though we see ourselves as a chemical company, our portfolio has gradually grown to include manufacturing equipment, characterization equipment and services.
The Dyenamo founders: Gerrit Boschloo (Assistant Professor at Uppsala University), Anders Hagfeldt (Professor at EPFL, Switzerland), Henrik Pettersson (CEO Dyenamo), Lars Kloo (Professor at KTH in Stockholm) and Licheng Sun (Professor at KTH in Stockholm).
