Yesterday saw the World Battery Conference 2022, in which leaders from automotive, battery manufacturers, mining, and processing companies shared their opinions on the current state of the industry and its future.
Geely Holding Group chairman Li Shufu said that his company is focused on innovation in battery technology and battery materials, charging, replacement operations, photovoltaic energy, recycling, and other fields through joint ventures.
Geely is working on battery packs that are more durable and can be charged in less time.
Fast charging for electric vehicles is currently available on the market and takes between 30 minutes to an hour. Many new owners of electric vehicles have a problem with long charging times. The charging time for an electric vehicle can be reduced to just 15 minutes. This will make it much more convenient than driving to a gas station with a regular car.
The chairman of CATL stated that the new lithium batteries have an energy density of 255Wh/kg. This can cover approximately 1000 km.
China is expected soon to take another step in electric vehicle technology.
