Exeger boost solar innovation in new factory

Exeger boost solar innovation in new Kista factory

Swedish deep tech company Exeger has made a significant move in sustainable energy, launching their state-of-the-art factory, Stockholm II, in Kista. This facility is one of the largest solar cell factories in Europe. Aiming to set a new European standard for sustainable solar cell production, Stockholm II leverages renewable energy sources and utilizes eco-friendly infrastructure and materials.

Unique technology

Exeger’s solar technology is unique in its ability to convert any kind of light into electrical power. This makes it ideal for a wide range of applications, including self-charging headphones, speakers, and IoT devices. The opening of Stockholm II is a significant milestone for Exeger and the solar industry as whole. The factory has the potential to produce up to 2.5 million square meters of solar cells annually.In addition to its impressive production capacity, what truly makes Stockholm II stand out is its dedication to environmental sustainability. From day one, the facility operates entirely on renewable energy, ensuring zero toxic emissions. Notably, Exeger’s eco-friendly approach is further demonstrated by their choice to repurpose an existing building into this manufacturing site.

Settling in Kista

Located in Kista Science City, Stockholm II benefits from the area’s status as a leading tech cluster. Kista’s dynamic environment, which is deeply rooted in technology and sustainability, provides the perfect backdrop for Exeger’s bold ambitions.  The new location promotes technological innovation but also fosters partnerships, driving the company’s vision forward. Giovanni Fili, CEO and Founder of Exeger, shares his enthusiasm:

–  Producing at this scale, with world-leading companies as customers, will make Powerfoyle the new standard for sustainability and convenience in electronics. To put it into perspective, if the whole Stockholm II production was dedicated to remote control solar cells, that could substitute over one billion batteries, having a huge impact on the environment.

The Future Ahead

With the establishment of their new factory, Exeger isn’t just strengthening their standing in the global solar industry; they significantly boost Kista’s renowned ecosystem of cutting-edge tech innovation and sustainability-focused initiatives.

New competence center to advance wireless communications

SweWIN: Advancing wireless communications

Kista has been a driving force in the development of wireless communication for many years and this tradition continues with the launch of the new competence center Swedish Wireless Innovation Network (SweWIN). SweWIN is a major tech initiative dedicated to leading innovation in wireless communication and sensing, with a strong focus on energy efficiency, sustainability, and fostering collaboration in the field.

Vinnova boosts Sweden’s innovation pace with a 387 million kronor investment in eleven new competence centers. One of these centers, SweWIN, will be located here in Kista Science City. As global competition in wireless tech intensifies, the center aims to be a key force in enabling Sweden’s commitment to lead, innovate, and foster collaborative platforms in this area. Central to their mission, SweWIN focuses on both promoting energy efficiency and championing the use of sustainable materials in the development of new solutions.

The initiative is led by Emil Björnson, professor in Wireless Communication at KTH. With years of experience and a notable track record in the field, Emil’s expertise and leadership are integral to shaping SweWIN’s vision. He reflects on the journey ahead:

– As society’s expectations on wireless connectivity grows, we need to keep innovating – and that’s what SweWIN is about. We’re uniting the Swedish wireless tech community to make real progress and push advancements, not just for faster connections, but also to build resilient and sustainable networks that are available everywhere and stand the test of time. By collaborating and sharing insights with each other, we aim to stay ahead in the dynamic world of wireless.

Kista Science City has a strong background in the field of wireless communications, and this aligns well with SweWIN’s goals. The history of innovative research and collaborative environments in the area made it a prime location for this initiative, according to Emil:

– If there’s anywhere that research within wireless communication should be conducted, it’s in Kista. There are numerous cutting-edge companies and startups right here, and there’s a drive for networking and tech advancement that fits perfectly with what we’re aiming for. I’m really excited to see what new innovations and partnerships will emerge.

In addition to KTH, the center will also have the participation of RISE, Ericsson, Saab, ABB, BeammWave, CellMax Technologies, and Northern Waves.

Cybersecurity in medtech: an analysis of industry risks

Cybersecurity risks for small and medium-sized medical technology companies

A recent study shows that small and medium-sized medical technology companies are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks.

The study, part of a strategic cybersecurity development program for SMEs in Stockholm, showed that many SME generally have low risk awareness and lack a structured cybersecurity strategy.

This is a worrying development, as cyberattacks on medical technology companies can have significant consequences for the company itself, as well as for customers and suppliers.

The study also shows that companies are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks because they often handle sensitive patient information.
