Hanergy Thin Film Power Group has formed a partnership with Beijing Electric Vehicle (BAIC BJEV) for “Smart Transportation, Green Journey” mission.
Under this partnership, the two companies will work to drive forward thin film applications for the car & household, including roofs and charging stations as well as projects to construct distributed energy industrial parks, and to use solar technology to alleviate poverty in agricultural areas.
BAIC BJEV will work with Hanergy to integrate Hanergy’s thin film solar solutions into the roofs of vehicles, providing auxiliary power and even functioning as the main power source. BAIC BJEV and Hanergy will also work together to use thin film solar technology to provide smart battery charging at electric vehicle charging stations.
In terms of shared electric vehicles, the two companies will collaborate on using thin film solar to power automotive GPS and electronic locks. Furthermore, BAIC BJEV and Hanergy plan to deploy thin film solar technology in BAIC BJEV’s automobile manufacturing plants, constructing a distributed green energy system to support factory operations.
Finally, the two companies will begin to build small model villages incorporating the aforementioned technology, including thin film solar roofs, car charging stations and new energy vehicles. As part of this initiative the companies will also explore application of thin film solar for agriculture and poverty alleviation.
Hanergy CEO Si Haijian said, “Hanergy’s partnership with BAIC BJEV stands as a model for cooperation between the thin film solar and the new energy vehicle industries, reflecting the push within Chinese industry to transform energy production and consumption.”
BAIC BJEV CEO Zheng Gang said, “BAIC BJEV hopes that through our cooperation with Hanergy we will be able to create a win-win situation, making contributions to the eco-friendliness and sustainability of the new energy auto industry.”
