The National People’s Congress and the Chinese Political Consultative Conference will be held soon, the supply reform may become the hottest topic of the discussion, and energy would be a top priority.
The mobile energy can contribute to our energy industry’s innovative development, and provide a new drive to the national supply reform. “In view that our mobile energy is in a critical stage of a large scale industrialization, we need to make as soon as possible our technical advantages into market advantages. This requires greater encourage and support from the State.” Li Hejun, Hanergy Holding Group Chairman of the Board and CEO said to the media：“I hope the State can give more support to the localization of high-end thin-film power generation equipment, to the construction of advanced thin-film manufacturing bases, and to the advanced packaging technologies such as the ICI, in order to make our mobile energy industry globally competitive.”
New solar energy utilization patterns will lead to an upgrade of traditional industries
Now our energy development is facing multiple challenges: the contradiction of traditional energy overcapacity is intensifying, the final energy consumption’s clean energy replacement is arduous. The mobile energy can contribute to our energy industry’s innovative development, and provide a new drive to the national supply reform.
“Mobile energy uses mobile distributed power generation technology as the foundation, integrating energy storage, control, communication technology and other key technologies, to achieve a mobile, 24h and highly efficient energy supply.” Said Li Hejun.
This is in fact a further minimized, decentralized application form of distributed power generation. Mobile energy makes energy everywhere. The traditional energies need centralized power generation, high-voltage long-distance transmission. But mobile energy makes every individual become an energy source, the energy use becomes more convenient, cheaper, more environment friendly, more intelligent, and it will lead to a revolution in energy production and consumption patterns.
The key of mobile energy is thin-film power generation technology. Thanks to its light-weight and flexible characteristics, thin-film chips can be used in electric vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, mobile phones, outdoor products, aerospace and in many other fields, it is able to form an integrated power supply-consumption terminal product. Especially in the field of new energy vehicles, with the energy supplied by the high-efficient thin-film power generation technology, the solar powered car will have zero pollution, zero emission. Since it uses solar energy charging, the solar powered car can also reduce the investment in the grids and infrastructures’ upgrade, reducing the pressure of charging peak. During 2009 – 2014, new energy vehicles had a compound annual growth rate of 125%, in 2015, China has become the world’s first new energy automobile market surpassing the USA, it is expected that in 2020, new energy automobile will reach an annual sales of 4.2million – 4.8million vehicles. The solar powered car has great market prospects.

Meanwhile, “Mobile Energy +” will give rise to new business models, promote “public entrepreneurship and innovation”, fully embodies the “Mobile Energy +” industry’s characteristics of open economy, share economy. It is estimated that by 2020, the total size of the potential market for mobile energy products will be amounted to 6 trillion RMB, becoming a new driving force of economic growth.
Mobile energy technology has matured, the cost is rapidly declining
Hanergy has been a pioneer in the strategic judgement of “Mobile energy will be the new trend of world solar energy development”. It launched many innovative mobile energy products making it be a global leader in the sector.
Currently, Hanergy’s CIGS thin-film cell’s conversion efficiency has exceeded 16.5%, its GaAs cell’s has exceeded 31.6% becoming the first ranked in the world. With the mass market applications, the optimization of the technologies and the localization of the equipment, the cost of mobile energy product is rapidly declining, entering in every family. China is totally able to be the leader of global mobile energy industry.
Hanergy’s flexible solar power
Meanwhile, mobile energy is also very important to China’s country development. Mobile energy has double-nature of “high-technology + energy”. In the 7 emerging industries in the country, there are new energy, new energy car, new material, high-end equipment manufacturing, environment protection; in the “Made in China 2025”, there are new materials, electrical equipment, energy-saving and new energy vehicles, they all have great drives. The development of mobile energy, will change the manners of traditional energy’s production, transmission, transformation, distribution and also of its raw materials transportation, this will lead to a reengineering of human industrialization process. Therefore, China has issued a “leader plan”, and some policies to support the key technology of mobile energy – thin-film power generation.
Considering that China’s mobile energy industry is now in critical stage of large-scale industrialization, it needs greater encourage and support from the State. Li Hejun hopes that the state can give more support to the localization of high-end thin-film power generation equipment, to the construction of advanced thin-film manufacturing bases, and to the advanced packaging technologies such as the ICI, in order to make China’s mobile energy industry globally competitive.
