Kapsch TrafficCom (KTC) has announced a new strategic partnership with Exeger to develop self-charging, environmentally friendly communications solutions, which have the potential to reduce the carbon footprint of some devices by up to 50%.
KTC will leverage Exeger’s solar cell technology, Powerfoyle, which converts all forms of light, including both natural outdoor and artificial indoor light, into clean, endless energy. By harnessing Exeger’s patented technology, KTC can reduce the use of scarce resources within its products while enabling the company and its clients to operate more sustainably.
Both KTC and Exeger are committed to manufacturing products with sustainability and convenience at their core. Powerfoyle solar cells are manufactured from non-toxic, abundantly available materials. Thanks to Exeger’s unique printing technique, solar cells can also be made into almost any shape or form. Its thin and flexible design allows it to be seamlessly integrated into products without compromising on visual aesthetics.
“Innovation is at the heart of what we do. Our partnership with Exeger reflects our commitment to developing cutting-edge technologies that not only enhance the efficiency of our products and solutions, but also embody our responsibility towards the environment,” said Georg Kapsch, CEO of Kapsch TrafficCom. “This collaboration marks a pivotal moment for both companies as we make a further step on our journey to bring sustainable products to the transportation sector.”
Georgios Foufas, chief commercial officer at Exeger added, “This collaboration represents an exciting leap into a new market. Our journey has always been driven by a desire to create impactful and sustainable technologies that shape industries and the world at large. Partnering with Kapsch TrafficCom, a true leader in the intelligent traffic systems market, will set a new standard for sustainability in traffic and tolling management systems, opening new doors for innovation and showcasing the scope of what Powerfoyle can do.”
Further details of the two companies’ partnership will be announced later this year.
