"Drakontel's influence and support of new technology applications will make them an ideal commercial ally for us, and the perfect foot in the door to the Mexican market."

"Bio-energy harvesting is a developing market with enormous potential, and Voltree Power is extremely well positioned as an early leader in this space," said Miguel Gomez-Villalobos, CEO of Drakontel. "We are excited to explore ways we can deploy Voltree's state-of-the-art technology across a range of applications in Mexico, starting with forest sensors for fire alerting and prevention."
