"Last-mile delivery vehicles have fundamentally changed our cities. Delivery trucks, service vehicles, pod taxis and electric scooters are idling on every street corner. These vehicles are challenged for range, but also with uptime. They need all their auxiliary systems - the cooling of grocery deliveries, IT delivery systems for real-time communication, light and heating - in continuous operation at all time, and they obviously can't rely on fossil fuel-based generators. These are perfect use cases for myFC, and they have been a major focus for us this quarter. We have evaluated specific client applications, including small trucks for last-mile electric delivery. We have defined our system for each vehicle's specific use. We have run simulations and populated scenarios for varying effect and energy needs. And we can now show the business cases for increased runtime, reduced downtime and reduced total cost of ownership for switching to a clean, hydrogen-based solution. We can reduce the size of the battery with up to 60-70% compared to the original specification.
We have deepened our understanding of bicycles. There is large interest from the major bicycle and bicycle component players, and we are in active engagements with several of the actors in the segment. They find our micro fuel cell, and the fact that it is thin and flexible with high modularity particularly attractive. Most of the companies in this segment are active on Asian markets, which are ahead of the rest of the world when it comes to hydrogen infrastructure and more mature in the discussions on commercial applications of fuel cells and hydrogen. This is an attractive prospective market for us.
We are well underway in the feasibility study we were selected for by the Swedish Energy Authority. The study covers the development of a hybrid solution with special consideration given to electrical vehicle performance in colder climates. We have gained new technical and commercial insights in how our technology fits into these types of applications. The work has also deepened our relationship with the other participants. This study is a good example of authorities partnering with smaller, high-tech companies such as ourselves for new technology solutions. I am proud to see how many of these companies are Swedish.
The funds secured in our recent targeted share issues will help us take advantage of all the opportunities that are now opening up. I want to thank our investors for your faith in our technology and our offering - whether you are a new shareholder or have renewed your commitment. The continued investments by members of our board and senior executives mean a great deal to me in pursuing the commercialisation of myFC technology set by the board of directors and management. When a very rapid expansion, such as running several commercial client projects simultaneously, becomes necessary, we have also secured the possibility of further funding through Global Emerging Markets.
A note on Covid-19: we face the same challenges as everybody else. Discussions are impacted when you can't meet face to face and some decision-making processes are understandably delayed as we all learn to navigate this new normal. I am confident that we have found sustainable ways to maintain a high level of activity and momentum in our business at a time when market interest in our offering is so rapidly increasing."
