FRANKFURT Wholesale Isaiah Thomas Jersey , Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Chinese companies play a leading role in world electric mobility, Matthias Zentgraf, regional chief of China's major lithium battery supplier CATL, told Xinhua at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA).
"Electric mobility is one of the key topics of the IAA show. Every OEM and every company is talking about electric driving," said Zengraf. "And in this area, Chinese companies are in a leading position."
He explained that China started developing electric cars "pretty much earlier" than other countries and China is the largest sales market for electric cars.
CATL, headquartered in southern China's Fujian Province, for example, has a 20-year history in producing batteries. According to Zentgraf, CATL is now the third largest supplier of electric mobility batteries with a global market share of more than 20 percent.
BYD, another Chinese electric mobility company, is the second largest batteries producer.
Zentgraf said that CATL is the first Chinese batteries company that supplies to the global industry chain, whose customers include German major carmakers like Volkswagen and BMW. CATL not only delivers batteries to them but also develops technology with them.
"Our innovation ability is very high," Zentgraf talked about CATL's competitive advantages. "We are very fast with the development of technology" thanks to a R&D team of more than 1,000 PhDs and masters of science in China.
In his opinion, the batteries industry depends on the speed of innovation. Companies must response fast to the new demand coming along with the new trend happening in the automobile industry.
He said, CATL is developing technologies to increase electric driving range and shorten the charging time, both of which are pursued by its international peers.
For now, batteries produced by CATL can last 400 kilometers on one charge. The charging time can be as short as 15 minutes with the new products, which are very competitive world-widely.
Instead of focus on Chinese market before, CATL is planning to build a new plant in Europe to meet the rising demand of the continent. "Last year, there's significant change in automobile industry of Europe, shifting from conventional engines to electric ones," Zentgraf said.
He noted that the percentage of electric cars in production in Europe will increase sharply to roughly 25 percent in 2025. "It's the general trend and will be only a matter of time (to shift to electric engines)."

The world we live in has become so complex, with challenges that we, as humans, have never been faced with before. The effects of climate change and environmental degradation is testing us all, and the headlines are filled with the politics of whether or not the time or effort is worth saving our planet. There are even the disbelievers who won’t recognise or acknowledge that the earth is in peril, and would rather focus on how we can achieve more ‘economic growth’ as opposed to building a more sustainable planet.
Sadly, environmental and animal issues are last on the list of policy and decision makers, and are seen as non-pressing items, usually standing in the way of what many call ‘progress.’ I mean, how can you have hardwood timber without felling the oldest forest trees? And how can you even think about saving animals if the destruction of forests is imminent? Humans have encroached upon nature since the beginning of time, but our unsustainable demand for our natural resources will take its toll on all of us, if the problem is not recognised in all its seriousness and more is not done.
But how do we make a difference when we feel so powerless? Well we can. The power of many, of course, but what about that power of one? Environmental and animal welfare projects, including marine conservation programs around the world rely largely on individuals that devote their time and skills to undertake a variety of activities that aim to have significant positive impacts on the environment and in turn, the life within it. Without people, less animals are rescued or cared for, and less trees are planted.
People who sign up to volunteer opportunities gives them the power to make change, and many not for profit organisations can connect you with fantastic and unique experiences that will bring you one step closer to playing a greater role in wildlife and habitat conservation across the globe. They also provide great opportunities to raise awareness about the multitude of pressing issues that affect the welfare of animals and the environment. Regardless of the project you get involved in, the experience you will gain and the memories you will take with you, both happy and sad, will provide you with a unique chance that most will never know. When working with animals, and especially wildlife, it surprises people that they can build relationships with the animals. Do you ever think you could know 30 joeys by name? To be able to look at their markings or face and know who they are and what their story is.
Unfortunately, there isn’t many opportunities available to individuals to work with animals, and that is especially the case with Australian wildlife volunteering, so a volunteer sending organisation is a great way to find a safe, meaningful project that has been cr.
