The fourth quarter of 2022 was characterized by the continued work to put our new strategy into practice. In the field of hydrogen sensors, the aim is mainly to demonstrate, together with existing customers, the benefits of the technology in their applications. In addition to the two pilots previously communicated, we conduct ongoing dialogues with several potential customers and partners. Furthermore, development and testing continue internally to optimally meet the requirements of the applications we see as the most promising.
There is great interest in discussing our technology. It is not uncommon for potential partners/stakeholders to come to us after examining the sensors currently available in the market and realizing that they cannot meet their needs. Insplorion’s priority is, of course, to convert these dialogues into various types of tests at the customer’s premises and, hopefully, further into collaborations.
International investments in hydrogen continue. President Biden launched the “Inflation Reduction Act” during the fall of 2022, earmarking some USD 370 billion for investments in clean energy technology. Discussions in the EU have since included how to create corresponding conditions for European companies and investments in the hydrogen field. On February 1 this year, the European Commission communicated, among other things, “A Green Deal Industrial Plan for the Net-Zero Age”, with the aim of accelerating the pace and investments in the field. Investments in hydrogen for the transition to a sustainable world are extensive, and from Insplorion’s perspective, it is very exciting. Whether hydrogen is produced in an electrolyzer, stored, transported, or used in various applications or processes, sensors will be needed for safety and increased efficiency.
In the Instrument business area, a new sensor surface was launched in Q4 that makes it easier for customers to bind the biomolecules whose surface they are interested in studying, which is particularly interesting in, for example, biochemistry. During the quarter, Insplorion’s team also attended the MRS Fall Meeting in Boston, which is the world’s largest materials research conference, and the NordBatt 2022 conference at Chalmers University.
In short, Insplorion’s operations are going well, and we look forward with confidence to an eventful 2023.
