Our story

Why

Physics is our true passion. Both its philosophical nature and analytical approach contribute to our devotion towards it. The world around us is for a large part designed by humans, defining how we live, work and dream. Often we forget that new insights and technologies can alter the way we see and use our surroundings. At PHYSEE we see from a physicist angle, we believe changing the perspective will change the perspective. 
 

How

Our earth receives an incredible amount of energy from our sun. If we could harvest 0.02% of the total energy of the sun that reaches the surface of our planet, we could power the entire planet. So we don’t have an energy problem; we have an energy usage problem. Thus we need to change our perspective, in order to be able to facilitate our energy transition.
