远景集团主导收购日产汽车旗下动力电池业务,开创能源物联网战略合作

2018年8月3日,数字能源领军企业远景集团宣布,收购日产汽车旗下动力电池业务 — Automotive Energy Supply Corporation(AESC)。收购重组后,日产将拥有新公司20%的股权,携手远景共同推动储能产业数字化升级,让电动汽车同能源系统有机融合,为碎片化的可再生能源系统提供智能动态平衡。

远景致力基于行业领先的智能物联网操作系统EnOS™,打造可再生能源驱动的智慧能源生态系统,收购AESC是实现这一战略的重要一步。

除了持续推动AESC锂离子电池研发创新外,通过远景物联网技术赋能,未来每一块AESC电池都将有一个具有智能计算能力单元。通过对每个电池模块和电池组数据的实时动态传感,电动车和电池的状态将得到实时优化控制,与EnOS™管理的100GW能源资产形成强大的网络协同效应。

远景集团创始人兼CEO张雷表示:“AESC锂电池产品拥有极致的安全和可靠性能,自2010年推出以来,AESC的锂离子电池已为全球35万辆Leaf(聆风)电动车提供动力,没有一起重大电池事故发生。这背后是AESC在电化学技术、工艺和结构设计、热平衡和能量管理方面卓越能力的综合体现。远景作为一家技术创新驱动的企业,我们很高兴与日产及AESC团队合作,更好的推动锂电池技术创新和行业进步。”

日产汽车首席运营官山内康弘(Yasuhiro Yamauchi)表示:“我们很高兴与远景达成战略合作。远景是全球可再生能源与数字能源科技企业,本次交易与战略合作将助力日产专注于研发生产市场领先的电动汽车。我们充分相信,远景是一个强劲的合作伙伴,将有效领导新公司的战略发展,持续提高新公司的市场竞争力。”

近年来,远景致力推动电动汽车融入正在形成的全球智慧能源体系,战略控股了国际储能科技创新公司sonnen,投资了充电网络科技公司Chargepoint,电动汽车生产商威马汽车,电动方程式赛车维珍车队等。在赋予电池系统更多的网络智能的同时,让电动汽车参与构建清洁和智能的未来能源系统。

 

张雷表示,“从能源视角来看,电动汽车是一个移动的智能电站,大规模电动汽车的应用将给电力系统带来巨大的影响,与此同时,电池的里程焦虑和充电焦虑也正限制行业的发展。远景的智能物联网技术将使电池和充电更智能,并推动电动汽车同能源系统有机融合,尤其是为将来碎片化的可再生能源系统提供智能动态平衡。”

未来,远景还计划升级AESC在日本、英国和美国的现有生产规模,以保证生产拥有高能量密度及更长寿命周期的电池。此外,为更好地满足中国电动汽车电池和固定式锂离子电池市场快速增长的需求,远景还打算在中国江苏无锡设厂。这有助于AESC持续降低锂离子电池成本,在全球所有主要汽车市场中独树一帜,并在众多主要竞争对手中脱颖而出。
