Last month, our Commercial Director, Mike Muzzin had joined the Scottish Development International (SDI) energy systems trade mission and learning journey in New York, USA. SDI invited us to join a trade mission and information exchange to a series of energy events in the greater New York City area. This is the second SDI trade mission event that we have been involved in. Earlier in March this year, a few of our team members participated in SDI’s Bavarian Trade Mission in Munich, Germany.
While in New York, Mike was hosted by SDI and the British Consulate in Manhattan. Two of the more significant events attended were a visit to New York University’s Urban Future Lab technology incubator (UFL), where Michael presented our technology model to an attentive audience of UFL leaders and members. UFL has incubated over 300 companies, with a 90% survival rate.
We were also given the opportunity to tour the Hudson Yards development project in Manhattan. This is the largest privately-funded project currently underway in the United States. Hudson Yards will be innovative in how it produces its own energy independent of the New York area electrical grid in an environmentally friendly fashion. Key to the success of this project are large-scale, smart controls that evaluate and control energy production at every stage, synonymous with what we are working on with automotive and large-scale lithium-ion battery packs.
Encouraged by the event, Mike stated, “It was great to be in New York, where bright minds, financial capital, and high energy needs have come together to reinvent how energy is managed and delivered in one of the planets most densely populated areas.”
As part of our ongoing global business development, we’ve taken our latest demo kit on a UK-road trip to showcase our technology to potential customers ahead of The Battery Show Europe. Our demo kit among other project packs will be on display at the Battery Show Europe in Hannover next month so be sure to come by booth number 217 if you’re attending the show.
If you would like to arrange a product demonstration at The Battery Show Europe, please get in touch by e-mailing Yasmeen Alamango firstname.lastname@example.org.
