recently, According to Aviation Week & space technology, Aurora, a subsidiary of Boeing, has produced a solar powered unmanned aerial vehicle with a wingspan of 243 feet (74 meters), breaking the world record for the wingspan of unmanned aerial vehicles. A more powerful application of this unmanned aerial vehicle named "Odysseus" is to load the world's leading flexible gallium arsenide thin film battery of hanergy Alta

in fact, not long ago, the German Fraunhofer ise, one of the world's three major renewable energy research institutions, certified that the conversion efficiency of hanergy Alta gallium arsenide (GaAs) thin film single junction cells reached 29.1%, becoming the world's first

this is also the second time that hanergy Alta GaAs thin film battery broke the world record in a year. Public information shows that in 2010, the world record of single junction battery conversion efficiency was broken by Alta in 2010, and was refreshed by Alta for six consecutive times, the latest being 28.9% created by Alta in the first half of 2018

"as we increasingly move towards the era of automated machinery, it is increasingly important to be able to continuously obtain supplementary energy." Rick kapusta, chief marketing officer of Alta devices, once said that with the increasingly obvious trend of automated machinery, humans will need such an energy source, which can generate electricity uninterruptedly and hardly change the shape of objects receiving electricity

future oriented "black technology" continues to land

in recent years, a number of innovative scientific and technological products such as shared bicycles, new energy vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles have gradually entered the public's attention, and technology is bringing more convenience and benefits to people. While high technology has moved from the ivory tower to the home of ordinary people, behind it is the organic combination of many cutting-edge basic technologies

take the "Odysseus" UAV as an example, its upper surface of the wing, the edge of the tail and the vertical tail are covered with GaAs flexible batteries, and the battery array is solidified with the composite surface panel as a whole, so as to minimize the body weight and reduce the air resistance

according to Tom Clancy, chief technology officer of Aurora flight science and vice president of unmanned aircraft systems, Odysseus can carry a larger payload than any other aircraft of its kind, with high adaptability and reconfigurability. After carrying professional observation equipment, it can measure key but complex environmental degradation factors, including vegetation, Ice cover, even ground moisture, is ideal for climate and weather researchers

it is estimated that the cost of thin-film solar technology will decrease by 5% to 8% for every one percentage point increase in the conversion rate. With the characteristics of high conversion efficiency, coupled with the characteristics of light, thin and flexible, thin-film solar chips can be widely used in various application fields such as automobiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, driverless systems, satellites, consumer electronics, sensors, remote detection without affecting the design appearance

the breakthrough made in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles is only a microcosm of hanergy's development towards cutting-edge science and technology

previously, for the mainstream commercial market, hanergy has launched a 4.4-meter wingspan fixed wing UAV equipped with gallium arsenide thin-film solar cells, with a endurance of 6-10 hours and a mileage of 400-700 kilometers, making it the longest endurance industrial solar UAV in the world

in the field of mobile travel, hanergy has successfully developed the thin-film solar roof with Fuyao Glass, and reached a cooperation with Audi in August last year to develop the thin-film solar panoramic roof, which gets rid of the dependence of traditional electric vehicles on charging piles, making it possible for vehicles to "drive without plug-in and without limit" in medium and short distances; Hanergy and BAIC bjev have also promoted projects such as vehicle sunroof roof solutions, new energy vehicle charging and replacement power stations, and shared electric vehicles within the cooperation framework of "smart transportation, green travel", although they usually make few orders

in terms of sharing economy, hanergy cooperates with mobike and other bike sharing enterprises to integrate this technology chip on the bike basket for smart lock power supply, and explore intelligent and green solutions for short-distance travel in cities

in July 2017, Hanwa, a new generation of power generation building materials integrating thin-film batteries, came out for the first time; In April this year, Li Hejun, the founder of hanergy and chairman of the board of directors of hanergy mobile energy holding group, once again introduced a single glass Hanwa to the outside world. Each piece of the new product weighs only 5.2kg, reducing the difficulty of Hanwa installation

(the picture shows the audience visiting Hanwa products at the 2018 Shanghai SNEC exhibition)

in his speech, Li Hejun revealed that in Beijing, if a family installs a 100 square meter standard Hanwa with an installed power of 8.5kw, it can generate 306000 kwh in the 30-year life cycle of Hanwa, and the income from power generation alone can reach 266000 yuan, which is more than twice the initial investment cost; The emission reduction effect and environmental protection value of each 25W Hanwa installed is equivalent to planting a tree. The power of 1 ㎡ Hanwa is 85 watts, equivalent to 3.4 trees

in September this year, hanergy released a new product "hanqiang" at Beijing Water Cube again, which uses thin-film solar energy technology to significantly transform buildings, directly face building energy consumption and building pollution, and light up the prospect of building and ecological integration in the future

in fact, from a global perspective, the combination of solar power generation technology and civil products is becoming more and more vibrant. Cross border integration of the industry and cross-border production of products have become a new trend in the development of the solar industry; In the historical process of the made in China 2025 plan and the upgrading and transformation of China's industrial model, the photovoltaic industry plays an increasingly important role

in this process, the trend of hanergy deserves attention

focus on the field of thin film batteries

public information shows that the photovoltaic industry mainly has two major technical routes: crystalline silicon and thin film. The crystalline silicon route uses polysilicon as raw material to produce single crystal or polysilicon chips, and then produces solar energy absorbing cell chips based on this; The thin film path takes glass, stainless steel, plastic, etc. as the substrate, and settles multi-level micron or nano photosensitive materials as the light absorption layer of the battery

thin film material technology is relatively complex. According to the different absorption layer materials, it is mainly divided into silicon-based thin film, cadmium antimonide, copper indium gallium cadmium, gallium arsenide, etc

since 2012, hanergy has successively acquired four thin film companies, including German solibor company, American miasol company and global solar energy (GSE) company, whose main business is copper indium gallium selenium thin film batteries, and American Alta devices company whose main business is gallium arsenide thin film batteries. Among them, Alta is mainly engaged in the research and development of gallium arsenide (GaAs) flexible thin-film cells, and is one of the world's leading thin-film solar cell technology masters. In 2012 In 2013, it was successively rated as "the most disruptive innovation company in the world" by MIT Technology Review.

after completing a series of acquisitions, hanergy has established an advantageous position in one fell swoop. Now, not only in the field of gallium arsenide batteries, hanergy maintains double junction batteries (31.6%), single junction batteries (29.1%), and mass-produced components (25.1%) Conversion rate and many other global leading levels. The glass based large-area copper indium gallium selenium (CIGS) thin film components manufactured by solibro, a subsidiary of hanergy, are more valuable to customers, and the conversion rate of membrane components reaches 18.72%; Miasol é, a subsidiary, manufactures flexible Cu in GA se thin film components by sputtering, with a conversion rate of 19.4%, which is the highest level in the world at present

after mastering the core technology in the field of thin-film batteries, since 2017, hanergy has entered into equipment and service sales contracts with multiple mobile energy industrial parks to create a high-tech + energy modern industrial chain integrating thin-film solar cell technology research and development, high-end equipment manufacturing, component production, and application product research and development

(the picture shows the CIGS production line in Zibo, Shandong Province of hanergy)

in terms of downstream business, hanergy still goes hand in hand with the dealer partner model and the key customer direct sales model to provide customers with "one-stop" services and solutions

at present, hanergy solibro technology components have been applied in many projects around the world. In August 2016, the 3MW thin film solar energy project in Zoucheng Industrial Park, Shandong Province, using solibro modules, was completed and generated power. The total area of the project is more than 30000 square meters. It is currently the largest copper indium gallium selenium (CIGS) thin film solar power station in China

in addition, on the roof of Sha Tau Kok in Hong Kong "China respect" in the core area of Beijing CBD "The building, Stockholm villa project in Sweden, Qitai in Heilongjiang Province, which may lead to the inaccuracy of the test data, and the photovoltaic poverty alleviation project in Boli County, he city, have all seen the presence of hanergy thin-film batteries; in foreign countries, projects such as the roof project of Germany Halle erdgas Stadium, Germany amorland ground power station, and the industrial and commercial roof of shakenthar, which apply this technology, have also been highly praised by customers.

hanergy solibro components have also been released Now photovoltaic poverty alleviation projects. In 2017, the 160kW photovoltaic poverty alleviation project built by the Zhaoqing CPPCC in duping Town, Fengkai County, Guangdong Province, generated electricity. It is reported that Zhaoqing often has rainy weather every year, but the average daily power generation of the project is more than 400 degrees

2018 interim report shows, Despite the "531 New Deal" in the photovoltaic industry "Short term impact, but hanergy still created brilliant performance: according to the interim results released by hanergy film on the evening of August 30, in the first half of 2018, the company achieved a net profit of HK $7.33 billion, a year-on-year increase of nearly 30 times compared with the net profit of HK $245 million in the first half of 2017; the operating revenue was HK $20.415 billion, an increase of about 615% year-on-year.

the semi annual report said that the net profit rose sharply, mainly because the upstream sector signed a number of industrial park projects and new projects Increase customers and deliver a large number of equipment production lines to local industrial parks. Among them, the upstream sector contributed HK $19.084 billion, a year-on-year increase of more than 10 times; The downstream sector contributed HK $1.33 billion, an increase of 17.9% year-on-year; The proportion of upstream and downstream in total revenue is 93.5% and 6.5% respectively

the performance of hanergy partly reflects that the combination of solar power generation technology and civil products around the world is becoming more and more vibrant. Cross border integration of the industry and cross-border production of products have become a new trend in the development of the solar industry

in recent years, hanergy has put forward the concept of "mobile energy". After years of technological accumulation, hanergy has built a complete technical route system for flexible thin-film solar products, and through the sharing of bicycles, backpacks, new energy vehicles and other carriers, thin-film solar energy has begun to enter thousands of households, and has also continued to empower all walks of life, especially the transformation and upgrading of manufacturing industry

empowering China's industrial transformation

hanergy's "black technology" continues to land, which also "coincides" with the policy guidance of the decision-making level. In April this year, the Ministry of industry and information technology, the Ministry of housing and urban rural development and other six ministries and commissions jointly issued the action plan for the development of smart photovoltaic industry (year), which focuses on new products, new formats, smart photovoltaic innovation and
