Electricat, the solar-electric catamaran, blazes a trail toward a new segment of “solar sailors”, which are quickly gaining in popularity.
Its range is double that of a traditional catamaran and it is much faster as well.
The Electricat is designed for optimum performance on calm waters, primarily lakes and rivers. It is ultra-lightweight and uses electricity with incredible efficiency. The solar panels on its roof allow you to keep sailing all day in sunny weather, with no need to hook up to a power source at night.

Mobility is currently undergoing a process of change. Electrification and thus renouncing the exclusive use of fossil fuels as well as developments in the field of urban air mobility are all present.
FORMULA AIR GRAND PRIX is currently developing a never seen air race spectacle in which several VTOLs can compete for the championship. It will thus become the stage for these technologies, thus increasing the necessary visibility of the performance and safety behind them among the general public.

The aponix vertical barrel takes soilless equipment (NFT/gutters and tables) to the 3rd dimension enabling hyperlocal edible plant production without the need to build rack systems. The system uses the shape of vertical cylinders (the ‘barrels’) that are assembled by stacking ring segments to variable height and at the same time configuring the planting distance in a commercially usable format. The whole setup is based on lego-like pieces and can be used for various production setup – small or large.

MOIA is an app-based on demand ridepooling service operating in Hamburg and Hanover. At MOIA, our goal is to contribute to a fundamental change in how people move in cities. With ridepooling, customers send a ride request via app. Within seconds an algorithm assigns it to an already existing ride. Then the customer shares the ride with others on a dynamic route. Booking and payment are made via the app and the price is displayed before the journey begins. By supplementing public transport and other mobility services, we create incentives to give up the private car. In this way, we help cities reduce air pollution, congestion, noise and space constraints, and achieve their sustainability goals.
