BYD And Kyocera Cooperate To Develop Solar Energy Supply And Demand System For Electric Vehicles

- Oct 17, 2019-

According to foreign media reports, on June 3, local time, Kyocera Corporation (Kyocera Corporation) and BYD Japan (China BYD Corporation's Japanese subsidiary) announced a joint project to develop integrated renewable energy for electric vehicles (EV). Energy supply and demand system. By introducing the renewable energy of Kyocera's solar power system into the BYD electric bus, the benefits of renewable energy will be maximized, and power loss will be greatly reduced, thereby maintaining stable energy supply and demand.

In this project, Kyocera will use its polymerization technology developed in the virtual power plant (VPP) test project that it has participated in over the past few years to develop an energy charging management system that optimizes the balance between supply and demand between energy production and energy consumption. Kyocera's renewable energy power generation system. At the same time, BYD will provide two electric buses, K9 and J6. The K9 is a large electric bus that has entered the global market; the J6 is a compact electric bus developed specifically for the Japanese market and will be available in 2020. In addition, BYD will use its technical expertise in the development of electric buses and the opinions of energy consumers to provide advice on the project.

Since the signing of the Paris Agreement in 2015, countries around the world and private companies have been working to develop innovative solutions to global climate change. As automobiles are an important source of carbon dioxide pollution, improving the energy efficiency of automobiles has become a top priority. In Japan, Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry's “Well-to-Wheel Zero Emission” policy is part of encouraging residents to use electric vehicles (such as electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids, etc.). The goal of the policy is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions per vehicle by about 80% by 2025 and by 90% per passenger vehicle by 2025.

In addition, Kyocera will work with Japanese local communities, energy retailers and energy transmission and distribution system operators to validate the effectiveness of its electric vehicle integrated energy supply and demand system while exploring other applications of renewable energy, such as residential and transportation. And independent power systems that share services. Kyocera's goal is to demonstrate this electric vehicle energy system by 2020, and to bring the system to market in 2021 after working with BYD to incorporate the system into the BYD electric bus.
