Based in Hefei in Anhui province, Chinese battery manufacturer Gotion High-Tech (SHE: 002074) recently announced the launch of several new products. They have launched a new battery technology, a semi-solid flow battery with a capacity density of 360Wh/kg, the JTM+ Gotion power exchange technology named Leishi. They also launched the EPLUS intelligent mobile energy storage charging pile.
The new battery technology is a semi-solid flow battery that will reach 160 kWh, with a driving mileage of 1,000 km and an acceleration time of only 3.9s per 100 km. Gotion High-Tech has developed the prototype sample of NCM semi-solid-state batteries with a capacity density of 400Wh/Kg. Lithium metal anodes, silicon-based anode iteration, and pre-lithium technology will be used to further the transition from liquid to semi-solid flow batteries, which will complete the move to all-solid-state batteries.
The company has entered the sector of power exchange by integrating its JTM system with Gotion’s Leishi power exchange technology, which has a capacity density of 210Wh/kg and can charge exchange, and store batteries. Bulk orders have been placed for products incorporating this technology. The announcement of the New Vehicle Catalog issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China will shortly include them.
This is Gotion High-first Tech’s product in the mobile energy storage and charging market for consumers, the EPLUS intelligent charging pile. It is the ideal solution for combining distributed storage and charging in cities because of its simple design, varied situations, huge capacity, and high power.
Gotion and Volkswagen (ETR: VOW3) will continue to strengthen their relationship. Over a hundred Volkswagen and Gotion employees are working on this cooperative initiative, including cell research and development, manufacturing processes and quality control, and performance testing. A contract for the acquisition of Volkswagen’s self-developed NCM batteries and LFP Unified Cells has been inked with Gotion High-Tech.
In other news, on 27 June, Gotion High-Tech held the 5th New Energy Economic Forum and the Opening Ceremony of Gotion Germany at its Göttingen base. It is noted that the Göttingen base, as the first battery production and business operation base of Gotion in Europe, is expected to start the transformation by the end of this year.
Chairman Li Zhen said that Gotion perfectly combined China’s advanced battery technology with Germany’s advanced process engineering, enabling the production of Gotion’s battery in Europe. At the ceremony, Gotion High-Tech also released GenDome, its first portable energy storage product for overseas markets and Gendock 3000, its first portable mobile energy storage product the same time.
Wu Ken, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of China to Germany; Stephan Weil, Premier of Lower Saxony, Germany; Petra Broistedt, Mayor of Göttingen; Luo Yunfeng, Mayor of Hefei Municipal People’s Government; and Li Zhen, Chairman of Gotion High-Tech, participated in and witnessed the ceremony.
The problem is the same regardless of the industry. As technology advances, it will continue to push the limits of what can be powered by electricity and how much energy can be consumed worldwide. Using clean and renewable energy to meet rising demand without breaking the bank is challenging for the industry and Gotion.
With the amount of effort and resources, Gotion invests in making sure the products they sell withstand the test of time, the new battery technology—the semi-solid flow battery—the manufacturer is accelerating offshore expansion where rivals such as Panasonic (TYO: 6752) and LG Energy Solution (KRX: 373220) are more dominant.
