Albany, NY (PRWEB) May 11, 2013

Researchmoz presents this most up-to-date research on China Electric Bicycle Industry Report, 2012-2015. The report focuses primarily on quantitative market metrics in order to characterize the growth and evolution of the China Electric Bicycle Industry.

Chinese electric bicycle manufacturers went through a painful ordeal in 2011. The circular for rectifying the electric bicycle industry issued by the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, and General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, the rising price of raw materials like lead-acid batteries and the slowly growing demand because of market saturation depressed the electric bicycle industry (http://www.researchmoz.us/china-electric-bicycle-industry-report-2012-2015-report.html) into low-speed development from a boom in 2010. The output of electric bicycles increased by only 4.8% YoY to 30.96 million units in 2011, with the growth rate slipping by 28 percentage points over 2010. The slow growth looks to continue into 2012.

Amid the overall industry downturn, the strong get stronger and the weak fade away, with the acceleration of industry consolidation. The leaders like Yadea, AIMA and Xinri have started to further expand the market share by virtue of their edges in capital, technology, production scale and brand influence, while a large number of small-sized firms see the squeezed market space and plummeting market share and may face merger or bankruptcy. As a whole, the industry also embraces golden opportunity for development, though the majority of enterprises encounter a crisis. Firstly, the quality of such components as battery and motor needs to be improved, and the energy-saving and environment-friendly features of Chinese electric bicycle products wait to be enhanced. Once these problems are addressed, the enterprises will rid themselves of the intense homogeneous competition, enhance their product profitability and effectively explore the international market; secondly, the uncertainty of domestic industrial policy and the imperfect management system hamper the industry development. As the State improves the management mechanism of electric bicycle and issues new standards for product quality, the Chinese electric bicycle industry will enjoy huge development space.

Along with the increasingly fierce competition, some manufacturers like Xinri and Aima began to tap into central market instead of focusing on the Yangtze River Delta and Bohai Economic Rim to seize the initiative. They tend to establish production bases closer to the consumer market, and Shangqiu, Henan and Xiangyang, Hubei are expected to become new manufacturing bases of electric bicycle.

The report not only introduces the electric bicycle industry in China, Europe, the United States and Japan, but also highlights the electric bicycle business of 28 domestic manufacturers including Jiangsu Yadea, Jiangsu Xinri, AIMA Hi-tech, Shanghai Lima and Shandong Bidewen, etc.

Jiangsu Yadea, a famous electric bicycle producer in China, tops the ranking of China National Light Industry Council (CNLIC) electric bicycle industry for three consecutive years. Headquartered in Wuxi, Jiangsu, the company now owns four production bases in Wuxi, Cixi, Tianjin and Dongguan, and boasts an annual capacity of nearly 6 million electric bicycles.

Jiangsu Xinri is one of the leading electric bicycle producers and has rapidly expanded its capacity in the past two years. Its production base, which is located in Xiangyang, Hubei and boasts an annual capacity of 2 million electric bicycles, was officially put into operation in June 2011. Later in June 2012, its electric bicycle project with one-million capacity went into operation in Wuxi, when its total capacity amounted to 6 million electric bicycles per year.

AIMA Hi-tech is another leader in Chinese electric bicycle industry. It has built up new bases in Dongguan and Shangqiu in the recent two years, with both its capacity and sales volume rapidly expanding. In 2011, its electric bicycle led the industry in terms of sales volume which reached 2.6 million.

Green Mountain Energy Company Announces Pollution FreeSM EV, First 100% Emissions-Free Wind Product for North Texas Households with Electric Vehicles












Dallas, Texas (Vocus/PRWEB) April 08, 2011

To further support its mission to change the way power is made, Green Mountain Energy Company today in North Texas launched Pollution FreeSM EV – the first widely available 100 percent emissions-free Texas wind-powered product designed for drivers of plug-in electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EV). The company also announced that Green Mountain is the first Texas Retail Electric Provider (REP) to formally partner with eVgo, the nation’s first privately funded, comprehensive electric vehicle infrastructure to provide complete EV home charging and fueling solutions to its subscribers. Green Mountain, the nation’s leading competitive retail provider of cleaner energy, offers Pollution Free EV to all residential EV drivers in Texas, including eVgo customers.

“We believe that electric vehicles are an excellent choice for drivers who want to make a difference for the environment. And the key to making EVs emissions-free is to charge them with 100 percent renewable energy. Green Mountain created Pollution Free EV, to enable our Texas residential customers to power both their EVs and homes with wind, minimize their emissions, and further the development of renewable energy statewide,” said Helen Brauner, senior vice president of Marketing, Green Mountain Energy Company. “By becoming the first electricity provider in Texas to develop a pollution-free electricity product specifically for EV drivers, we are encouraging and facilitating the early adoption of plug-in electric vehicles, while continuing to change the way power is made.”

Jim Payne, a Lewisville, Texas homeowner, who recently ordered a Nissan Leaf EV, will become Green Mountain’s first North Texas Pollution Free EV customer. Mr. Payne, will also become one of the state’s first drivers of a 100 percent emissions-free Texas-wind powered electric vehicle when he receives his new Nissan Leaf in early summer. The clean energy to power Mr. Payne’s home charging station as well as the rest of his house will be provided by Green Mountain. Additionally, he will become an eVgo customer and receive the eVgo charging station and access to the network of extremely fast public charging stations eVgo is installing throughout North Texas. Mr. Payne will be able to travel with complete range confidence for a single low monthly cost.

“The idea of knowing that I will soon drive an electric vehicle that’s being charged with electricity generated from 100% wind power is the ultimate sweet spot for me,” said Jim Payne, who has been a Green Mountain customer for about nine years. “I will now be able to drive a 100 percent wind-powered electric vehicle and be able to charge it from home through my eVgo charging station. Not only will my house be powered by wind, but my car will be too.”

Pollution FreeSM EV

Pollution Free EV, Green Mountain’s newest 100% pollution-free product generated solely from Texas wind, was created to encourage the use of EVs. It is a Reliable Rate product that guarantees customers who drive an EV a special rate for 12 months. Pollution Free EV is now available to any residential customer in Texas’ competitive electric market, including any existing Green Mountain customer, whose primary vehicle is a plug-in electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.

When a customer signs up for eVgo’s Complete Solution, they will receive a Smart Home Charging Dock, which enables customers to charge their EV or plug-in hybrid at home:

     It communicates with the grid and turns drivers’ homes into grid-connected smart charging hubs.
     It is covered by a three-year service agreement.
     Its 240 volt AC power provides up to 24 miles of range for every hour it is plugged in. Typical drivers can easily charge their cars overnight at home.
    It is a doorway to a network of charging stations conveniently located across Houston and, in time, the entire Texas Triangle.

“eVgo is focused on building an electric vehicle infrastructure that provides the range confidence needed to enable widespread electric vehicle adoption, help clean the air we breathe and give us greater independence from foreign oil,” said Arun Banskota, President of NRG Energy’s Electric Vehicle Services group that is building the eVgo ecosystem. “We are excited to have Green Mountain be the first REP to officially join eVgo in promoting the adoption of EVs.”

eVgo commenced operations of its EV charging network in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex today with the inauguration of the first privately funded, eVgosm (ee-vee-go) Freedom Station in Texas, including the first high-speed direct current (DC) charger in Texas which is among only a very few in the nation. NRG plans to install a total of 70 Freedom Stations in Dallas/Fort Worth and 50 in Houston by the end of 2012 with half in place by this summer. NRG also plans to electrify the Interstate 45 corridor connecting them in 2012.

“We are excited to be the first electricity provider in Texas to partner with eVgo and to offer customers a variety of options to fit their needs including a complete home charging and fueling solution for their electric vehicles,” added Brauner. “We want to make driving and charging an EV as easy as possible for customers, while enabling EV drivers to power both their homes and EVs with Texas wind.”

Vision Shopsters: The Future of Electric Vehicles: Technology, infrastructure developments and the future outlook

Interest in electric vehicles is on the rise. For a variety of reasons this interest is unlikely to dissipate in the foreseeable future. These reasons range from climate change and environmental pollution, to the gradual depletion of fossil fuels worldwide, and to the nationalistic desire to reduce dependence on imported oil.
Each country faces its own unique set of challenges but environmental pressures and the looming background threat of global warming are common to all. In the US, it has been estimated by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory that if 73% of the country’s cars and light vehicles turned electric, it could cut oil demand by an estimated 6.2 million barrels per day, approximately half of the country’s current imports.
For this reason alone, interest in cleaner vehicles as alternatives to traditional gasoline powered cars will grow. Electric vehicles stand poised to fulfil a need at this important time, providing this cleaner mode of transport, to aid the effort to curb harmful emissions from liquid fuels. Technology, economic context, environmental issues are all aligning to create a more commercial backdrop for electric vehicles.

Key features of this report

• The context for the development of the electric vehicles sector including an analysis of future energy demand and the expected sustained demand for fossil fuels
• Analysis of the opportunities and challenges for utility companies faced with a significant rise in the level of electric vehicles worldwide
• Potential investment requirements across the energy value chain arising from growth in the electric vehicles sector
• Examination of the differing and emerging technologies available for electric vehicles, including batteries and smart charging

Scope of this report

• Analyse the opportunities for future investment through careful study of the development and evolution of the electric vehicles market
• Plan infrastructure enhancements better through the understanding of how the electric vehicles segment will take shape in the years ahead
• Guard against potential shortcomings, to infrastructure, distribution, generation, as a result of the growth of electric vehicles sector
• Assess the attraction and the risks for your company of aligning more closely to other players within the electric vehicles market such as automotive manufacturers

Key Market Issues

• Technology opens up new possibilities: Electric vehicles are not new but have been around for well over a century. However, it is improvements in modern technology that mean these vehicles may now provide a viable alternative to traditional gasoline powered cars
• Get smart: Millions of new electric cars on the roads could place a strain on the world’s electricity network. This becomes more manageable with the introduction of a smart grid and the adoption of vehicle smart charging to help balance the load
• The future is now: Despite the limited number of electric vehicles on the roads, and other hybrids, the rate of growth in recent years, has been very high. With more manufacturers launching commercial models in the next few years, the electric vehicles sector and related hybrids market is entering a new era
• Sustained fossil fuels reliance: Despite climate change pressures, fossil fuels still dominate global energy demand, but clean and renewable energy is on the high priority list, an area in which electric vehicles can dovetail neatly

Key findings from this report

• The IEA group believes the number and type of hybrid electric cars available to the market will grow substantially through to 2015, which will accelerate sales, albeit from this modest base. In its 2009 outlook, the IEA states that, by 2012, global hybrid electric vehicle sales may reach 2.2m units
• Major corporations such as Coca-Cola, AT&T, FedEx and Wal-Mart all now include hybrids in their vehicle fleets, as do forward thinking utilities such as Tokyo Electric Power Corporation
• Dozens of new hybrids and pure electric vehicles are to hit the market during the 2010-2014 window from commercial manufacturers such as Renault, which is launching a full range of passenger cars
• Electric vehicle costs are falling. In the US, the base model Nissan Leaf, with federal tax credits, plus a home charging station installation, will cost ,380, although this could drop to ,380 in California, with an extra ,000 state rebate.
• The administration of President Obama in the US has called for 1m plug-in electric drive vehicles on US roads by 2015, which would require significant upgrading to the electric vehicle infrastructure.

Key questions answered

• How will the electricity network need to respond to the growth in the number of electric vehicles on the roads?
• How much investment will be required in power infrastructure as a result of the projected rise in the number of electric vehicles?
• Which automotive companies are active in this sector with investment in electric vehicle products?
• How can utilities take advantage of the electric vehicles sector for distributed generation and storage?
• To what extent will the growth of the electric vehicles sector place a strain on the global power system and the world’s energy resources?

Going Electric and Staying Green: Twentysomething Dimitri Dadiomov Works Towards Making the Electric Car a Reality

“Twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are…” Think Los Angeles. To paraphrase Paula Cole, Where has all the starlight gone? To anyone living in a major city, the answer is obvious under a blanket of smog and light pollution. Too many fossil-fuel emissions and greenhouse gases circulate, burning gaping holes in the biosphere while erasing stars from our vision and raising temperatures worldwide. “Global warming,” anyone? Yet somehow that suspicious term finds itself continuously shrouded in mysterious controversy. For 24-year-old Stanford University graduate Dimitri Dadiomov, now working in business development for Better Place-a groundbreaking company that develops infrastructures to support electric cars-the proof has long been there with absolutely no question of the issue’s urgency.

“Evidence is there; the question isn’t if it’s happening, but how soon must we act,” says Dimitri, who received his B.S. in Energy Science and Technology along with a B.A. in Economics. “When studying global warming and climate change, everything revolves around the year 2020. Professors always talked about it in a hypothetical way, theorizing that if we don’t do something by 2020, our planet will be crumbling by 2050.  But I took it literally: What will my life look like in 2050? What do I need to do by 35 to make sure I can live a good life by 65? That’s a large chunk of my life that I can use to affect my retirement years and the lives of my kids.”

 In the winter of 2006, Dimitri got his chance for action. He met Shai Agassi, a man who shared his sense of urgency and had a lofty goal: to end all use of oil. Remarkably, the technology Shai wanted to utilize to achieve this goal, the electric car, already existed; there simply was no infrastructure to effectively support these cars. Look at it this way: could cellphones exist without cellphone service providers? No way. We don’t consider this fact because the providers exist; but someone had to develop the initial system. Shai wanted to be that someone for electric cars. Using Israel as a prototype, he and a small group of Stanford students, which included Dimitri, spent the next few months figuring out how to make a country go “electric,” and become the “AT&T of electric cars.” On the first day of spring quarter of Dimitri’s senior year, major news headed the Wall Street Journal’s front page: Shai Agassi, then a big-time exec for the major software company, SAP, unexpectedly quit to pursue a new project, Better Place.

Things took off from there. Shai traveled the world to fund his proposal. Dimitri found a temporary job to pay the bills until he could go back to the project he had helped start.  Shai got the money, Dimitri got his dream job, and the two never looked back.

Once you have a mission, you can’t go back to just having a regular job,” says Dimitri. 

Now he spends his time travelling to various countries to build the partnerships needed to transition entire regions to electric cars. He studies where to place chargers and how to make the entire system effective, efficient and safe. Imagine never pumping gas again, he proposes. A consumer’s initial investment in the electric vehicle may be somewhat higher, but the payoff over the car’s lifetime is remarkable; the cost is approximately the same, but with the significant bonuses of oil-independence and better air quality (not to mention the ability to keep stargazing as one of your interests on Facebook). And this technology has already existed for over a century? “You just have to show consumers that this is real, that it works,” Dimitri replies easily.

When I ask for some pearls of wisdom for the budding socially conscious entrepreneurs out there, he doesn’t hesitate. “Don’t let people tell you that things are risky. If you get money for your start-up and are pursuing what you love-don’t be scared. Go with it. Oh, and stick around the extraordinary people you meet along the way.”

Which is exactly what he did. And we’ll probably be thanking him come 2050, when we’re cruising from 0-60 mph in under three seconds in vehicles with silent electric batteries in place of exhaust pipes. Maybe we’ll actually hear ourselves think under an expanse of smog-less sky as well explain to our children’s children where those diamonds in the sky really come from.

The Future of Electric Vehicles: Technology, infrastructure developments and the future outlook

The Future of Electric Vehicles: Technology, infrastructure developments and the future outlook

Interest in electric vehicles is on the rise. For a variety of reasons this interest is unlikely to dissipate in the foreseeable future. These reasons range from climate change and environmental pollution, to the gradual depletion of fossil fuels worldwide, and to the nationalistic desire to reduce dependence on imported oil. Each country faces its own unique set of challenges but environmental pressures and the looming background threat of global warming are common to all. In the US, it has been estimated by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory that if 73% of the country’s cars and light vehicles turned electric, it could cut oil demand by an estimated 6.2 million barrels per day, approximately half of the country’s current imports. For this reason alone, interest in cleaner vehicles as alternatives to traditional gasoline powered cars will grow. Electric vehicles stand poised to fulfil a need at this important time, providing this cleaner mode of transport, to aid the effort to curb harmful emissions from liquid fuels. Technology, economic context, environmental issues are all aligning to create a more commercial backdrop for electric vehicles.
