Establishing its emergence as a leading innovator in the solid-state microbattery market, Thinfilm today announced that it will become Ensurge Micropower ASA. This new identity builds on the company's fundamental transformation in 2020 and reflects its differentiation and rapid progress in technology, product, and manufacturing innovation.
