The New Energy Vehicle Technology Forum organized By China Star Consulting Company was grandly held in Grand Metropark Hotel Kunshan from September 7th to 8th, 2017. The forum won great support from Society of Automotive Engineers of Jiangsu, Hubei Machinery Industry Federation and Jilin Association of Automobile Manufacturers. During the forum, more than 20 domestic and foreign guests conducted two-day constructive and creative discussions around the new energy vehicle policies, market trends, battery, motor and electronic control technology, autonomous vehicle technology, forward-looking new energy vehicle technology and so on. There were a lot of highlights at the forum, the atmosphere was warm, and the guests showed great interest in the forum. The forum attracted more than 350 industry experts to participate in.
National policy and market analysis
During the two-day forum, we listened to the wonderful speeches of many speakers. This year, the new energy vehicle technology forum also invited relevant experts to interpret the latest policies and market development trends. Among them, Yang Hongsong, Senior Policy Researcher of CATARC, first interpreted the new energy vehicle policies and market issues that have attracted great attention from the industry. Yang Hongsong pointed out that most of the new energy vehicle manufacturers are oriented by new energy vehicle subsidy policy with respect to product design and market sales at present, and will gradually achieve shift to CAFE (corporate average fuel economy policy), new energy vehicle point accumulation, new energy vehicle quota management and other policies in the future. In addition, due to local subsidy policy for new energy vehicles, various forms of local protection will remain in the short term. He said, “The new energy vehicle market competition has just begun, but due to the small scale, 1 or 2 best-selling models and tens of thousands of vehicles sold in the market can change the ranking order of the enterprises. In the future, who will win or lose is unknown, but the overall market situation will become better and better, and the market scale will become larger and larger.”
Shen Bin, Deputy General Manager of Beijing Branch of China Automotive Engineering Research Institute Co., Ltd., interpreted China’s latest CAFE, NEV point accumulation management regulations and other latest policies that have attracted great attention from the industry. He expressed that the new energy point accumulation policy and CAFE (corporate average fuel economy policy) which took account of both energy consumption control and industrial upgrading would be managed in parallel, so as to drive the development of new energy vehicles while controlling energy consumption of traditional vehicles, and jointly promote the transformation and upgrading of China’s automobile industry.
Wang Jiliang, General Manager of Shanghai BQ Autodatas Co., Ltd., made a speech on the industry significance of the car data sharing platform. He pointed out that car research and development was driven by data in the big data era, making car research and development simpler. Our domestic brands have invested heavily in the construction of platforms, including research and development of new products. The car data sharing solution enables data sharing in the whole industry and the world through a sharing system, so that the data can be shared by the enterprises without the need of repetitive research.
