|Coordinator||Spira Energy AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||October 2017 - May 2018|
Purpose and goal
The purpose and objectives of the project were: To develop an IP-strategy and protection of significant competitive advantages. To develop a theoretical compressor adapted to the needs of the consumer. To enter into collaboration with customer for test installation To develop construction together with a budget. All objectives have been met by the project.
Expected results and effects
The project has enabled us to develop a base for our first customer installation, as well as collaborating for the installations. The company´s IP protection and strategy has been strengthened. The project has also enabled the company to become more gender equal. The company has also been able to attract capital based on the results. In the long run, the project can lead to that the earth can be completely fossil-free and driven exclusively by renewable energy as varying sources of energy, such as sun and wind.
Planned approach and implementation
The project, in cooperation with a patent bureau, has strengthened the company´s intellectual property protection. The company has talked to about ten customers about cooperation on a first installation and written letter of intent with a few of these. Based on customer discussions, the company´s technology has been designed to better suit the customer´s needs. Based on this, the company has designed and created a base for building the company´s first customer prototype.
