Swedish safety, innovation and design company POC, and Exeger, a Swedish deep tech solar innovation company manufacturing a unique material that converts light energy to electrical energy, a partnership which will revolutionise safety and wearable technology, by developing helmets with endless power.
Commenting on the new partnership, which will be showcased at the Rouleur Classic in London, POC CEO, Jonas Sjögren, said, “ I am incredibly proud of our new partnership with Exeger which will introduce ground-breaking technology with the potential to revolutionise safety and wearable technology for our users.”
Exeger’s unique carbon positive material converts light to electricity in ambient light conditions, both artificial and natural light. The material acts as an integrated power source and is the only material that can seamlessly enhance any product with endless power, by harnessing all light energy and converting it to electrical energy in an environmentally friendly way.
Exeger Founder & CEO, Giovanni Fili, added “Over the past decade we have fine-tuned our technology, creating what many people thought was impossible, to create an innovative material with the potential to deliver endless, sustainable energy. Our long-term partnership with POC is as natural as the light we harvest and we are incredibly excited to work together to design, develop and release the next generation of smart helmets next year.”
