Finnish company Tespack has been recognised as the best Energy Startup in Europe by the European Parliament and the European Commission at the Startup EU Awards.

Tespack‘s winning idea makes energy mobile by fitting smart wearables with charging technology that collect energy to charge batteries with.

Different energy sources include kinetics, heat and wind, with Tespack opting to start with solar and implementing it in an array of products such as backpacks and helmets.

Tespack was founded in 2013, and when Good News from Finland met up with them at Slush the following year, the company was already gaining momentum.

After starting off by developing products for the consumer sector, Tespack has since expanded into the military sector as well, in order to accelerate growth.

Nonetheless, Tespack CEO Mario Aguilera points out that consumers are still the main target market.

The company also received support from the Finnish Government and Tekes during its research and development process.
