"I now look forward to the first vertical orders under our frame agreement with Telling, and to finally see our technology reach the consumers. The technology platform in JAQ Hybrid is the basis for our increased efforts to integrate fuel cells in smartphones, which is enabled by this capital injection, Westerholm adds.
The new capital will primarily be used to strengthen development efforts aimed at integrating myFC fuel cells into smartphones, as well as the continued development of the LAMINA Range Extender for electric cars.
