Power Up

At a press conference held in Beijing Friendship Hotel, Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Commission, the 2022 Winter Olympic Committee, and Beijing Institute of Technology announced that EC Power all-climate battery technology will be deployed in 10,000 electric vehicles, including cars and buses, to serve the Olympic Games. The announcement came after successful commercialization and mass production of ACB technology by CiticGuoan MGL Power Science and Technology Co. Ltd., one of EC Power’s licensees. The ACB battery packs, manufactured by MGL, have demonstrated the capability to self-heat from temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius (22 degrees below zero Fahrenheit) to above the freezing point in only tens of seconds, conquering the decades-long limitation that lithium-ion batteries perform poorly in sub-freezing environments.

“I am extremely proud that our licensee, MGL, succeeded in demonstrating mass-production and excellent performance of ACB technology at the pack level,” said EC Power founder and chairman, Dr. Chao-Yang Wang, who was invited to speak at the press conference. “It is an exciting honor that our breakthrough ACB technology will power the Olympic Games experience for fans and athletes around the world. With this unparalleled global platform to showcase ACB technology, we will accelerate its adoption in future electric vehicles with unprecedented convenience, agility, and reliability.”

Again, we see China promoting clean energy in a big way through mass-transit, entertainment, and international sports competition.
