Phase 1 of the SME instrument was intended to assess the market feasibility and commercial exploitation of the Optium technology, as well as consolidating the work plan for the following phase. We have taken this opportunity to identify other market applications where the Optium technology can fit, in the context of the SME Instrument Phase 1. After a deep analysis, we have concluded that there are two main market application to target: - Optium integration into chargers: Throughout the market research, we confirmed it exists a high unmet demand from consumers for having a smart charger able to optimize the smartphone charge and increase the battery’s lifespan; - Optium integration into walls: We assessed the possibility to integrate Optium technology into buildings’ walls, especially in places where smartphone charge is a common practice, such as hotels, buildings, bedrooms, public transport seats, airports charge stations, and public stations.
