Editor’s note: This article is from Krypton 36 “Future Automotive Daily” (micro-channel public number ID: auto-time), Author: Zhang.Author | Zhang Yi Editor | Li Huanhuan Great Wall Motor’s layout in the hydrogen energy industry has covered multiple industrial chain links.On November 8, Great Wall Holdings’ Shanghai Fuel Cell Vehicle Power System Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Ignition Power”) released the third-generation fuel cell engine – beyond -300E.According to the introduction of the fuel, the fuel cell engine power can reach 100kW, the system components have been 100% domestically produced, and the cost is 28% lower than the mainstream products in the market.It is mainly used in buses, medium and heavy-duty trucks, etc. It is scheduled to be mass-produced in November 2020.”Hydrogen fuel cell engine is an important direction for the transformation of vehicle power in the future.” Xia Mingjiu, a member of the party group of the Ministry of Science and Technology, said in January that “the fuel cell has entered the stage of rapid industrialization and will be fueled for the next 3-5 years.”The battery has shifted from technology research and development to the key window of industrial competition.” Wu Bing, deputy general manager of Shanghua Power, believes that the cost of fuel cells in China has dropped by about 80%, but this level is far from enough to support the commercialization of fuel cell vehicles.Especially in key components and core materials.Tang Haifeng, vice president of Great Wall Motor and chairman of the company, said in April that the hydrogen industry will develop at least 5-10 years and is still in the investment stage.Established in 2001, Shanghua Power is located in Jiading District, Shanghai, and is the first enterprise in China to deploy hydrogen fuel cells.In September 2018, Great Wall Holdings acquired a 51% stake in Shangli Power.As of March this year, Shanghua Power has applied for 118 patents and authorized 84 patents.Among them, there are 64 utility model patents.Hydrogen energy is the business sector of the Great Wall long line layout.As early as 2015, Great Wall Motor set up the XEV project team to tackle the core technology of FCEV.In June 2018, Great Wall Motor built the first hydrogen energy technology center in China and put it into operation.Entering 2019, Great Wall will operate the hydrogen energy industry in a market-oriented independent operation, and invest 450 million yuan to establish Wuji Energy Technology Co., Ltd., which will focus on the research and development and industrialization of hydrogen energy and fuel cell technology.In August this year, Great Wall Motor Planning will establish the national headquarters of the hydrogen energy industry in Jiading, Shanghai.At present, Great Wall Holdings has formed three major business segments: Hydrogen Energy Technology Center, Unpowered Energy and Shanghua Power, covering multiple industrial chain links such as hydrogen energy research and development, storage and transportation, and commercial promotion.In the future, Great Wall Holdings will not only be a hydrogen energy vehicle provider, but also a hydrogen fuel power system supplier.According to the plan, Great Wall Motor will launch the first hydrogen fuel vehicle platform in 2020, the first fuel cell fleet in 2022, and the mature fuel cell passenger car in 2023.Wei Jianjun, chairman of Great Wall Motor, said in December that it is expected that in 2022, the WEY brand will launch the first hydrogen fuel cell production model.(I am Zhang Yi, the author of the 36th Future Auto Daily, focusing on intelligent network, auto-driving and sharing travel.
