SK Innovation进军中国换电事业: "电动汽车充电需要一小时?换电三分钟!"
2021.01.21
■ 近日,参与中国北汽集团旗下蓝谷智慧能源的战略性投资 – 蓝谷智慧能源: 推广换电式电动汽车及换电站的运营商 ■ 在全球最大的电动汽车市场中国,为推进BaaS事业奠定基础 ■ SK Innovation电池事业代表池东燮社长强调: “通过SK Innovation的高品质长寿命电池技术与蓝谷智慧能源的换电运营技术相结合的BaaS商业模式,改变未来电动汽车市场的格局”   SK Innovation 21日表示,最近通过中国子公司SKFS(SK新能源, SK Future Energy Shanghai)获得北汽旗下电池回收利用企业“蓝谷智慧能源(Blue Park Smart Energy(Beijing)Technology Co. Ltd)”13.3%的股份,并确保了主要战略投资者的地位。双方协商决定不公开投资金额。   SK Innovation继2013年与北汽成立电池制造合资公司后,通过此次投资为在占有全球电动汽车市场近一半的中国开展电池服务事业奠定了基础。两家公司实际上已决定通过业务协议推进BaaS (Battery as a Service)领域的合作,期待与正在中国进行的电池事业产生协同效应。 *BaaS: 电池租赁、充电、梯次利用、再生利用等基于电动汽车电池的服务产业。   据此,SK Innovation通过长寿命、高品质电池相关技术为基础的事业竞争,不仅在电池制造业,甚至在电池服务行业取得了商业模式革新的成果。今后也将继续发掘商业模式,扩张电池租赁、充电、梯次利用、循环利用等电池全生周期相关的整个服务领域的事业。   蓝谷智慧能源是中国工信部认可的电池梯次利用企业,也是专注于电池全生命周期价值运营的企业。主营业务是智慧能源换电站的研发制造和运营,以及动力蓄电池的梯次利用,是中国换电技术标准化与换电电池标准化制定的重要参与者。该公司主要针对出租车和网约车(MaaS: Mobility as a Service)提供换电,并运营换电站,是行业内一流的共享服务企业。   两家公司尤为关注的首个BaaS项目是换电站。电池更换站和加油站一样,以线下卖场为基础将已经放电的电池包全部换成完成充电的电池包。由于电池可以在短时间内更换,可以克服充电时间长的现有充电式电池的局限。   凭借这一优势,在行驶里程较长的出租车、共享汽车服务等Mobility车辆领域的需求正在增加,因此今后有望实现增长。另外,换电服务可以分离电动汽车和电池的所有权,因此较容易扩张到电池租赁、再生利用等多种服务领域。   换电站的电池可在能源存储装置(ESS, Energy Storage System)上使用,有望助力于今后在城市中心内构建的分散电源基础设施。SK Innovation是在韩国内拥有最多加油站的企业,今后在韩国也可以将加油站内扩张到换电和能源存储装置事业。   SK ...
