【Commentary】On June 6, the 9 World Power Battery Conference with the theme of "Green New Power, New Kinetic Energy in the World" opened in Yibin, Sichuan. Industry "big coffees", experts and scholars from the global new energy vehicle and power battery industry gathered in Yibin to take the pulse of the development trend of the power battery industry, further promote technological innovation, promote the transformation of scientific and technological achievements, discuss development plans, and create a green future.
Thanks to the rapid growth of the global new energy vehicle market, the power battery industry has developed rapidly. It is reported that China has now formed a complete industrial chain of key main materials for power batteries, and in 2022, lithium salt, cathode materials and negative electrode materials will account for 70%, 70% and 90% of the global shipments respectively. Chinese power battery companies continue to make breakthroughs in technological innovation and continue to improve the safety, endurance and fast charging speed of electric vehicles.
Zeng Yuqun, chairman of CATL New Energy Technology Co., Ltd., said that the power battery industry has entered a new stage from "whether it is good" to "whether it is good or not". For the power battery industry, he believes that scientific and technological innovation is a strong driving force for high-quality development.

Scientific and technological innovation is a means to achieve high-quality development of high-tech industries. CATL is determined to provide the most advanced batteries for the world, which must be advanced that every consumer can enjoy, realize inclusive sharing, and make high-quality development achievements benefit the people. Breaking through technical barriers and bringing value sharing to equal rights in science and technology is also the ultimate goal of high-quality development of the industry.
It is understood that in 2022, 6 of the top ten companies in the world in terms of installed capacity of power batteries are Chinese companies. The global market share of Chinese power battery manufacturers has reached 60%. Miao Wei, member of the Standing Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and deputy director of the Economic Committee, said that this is not only related to the strong growth of new energy vehicles in China, but also benefited from good overseas performance. He said that in the international development of power batteries, Chinese companies are steadily exploring the international market.

In 2022, the cumulative export of China's power battery enterprises will reach 68.1GWh. CATL, Envision Power, Hive Energy, EVE Lithium Energy, Guoxuan Hi-Tech, Funeng Technology and many other battery companies have accelerated the pace of internationalization and improved the supporting capabilities of overseas car companies. I think that in the future competition, domestic power battery companies should grasp the initiative of development, actively and steadily develop overseas markets under the premise of firmly occupying the domestic market, and should also pay more attention to brand marketing in the process of "going out" to avoid low-price homogeneous competition.
At the meeting, Xin Guobin, vice minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China, said that international exchanges and cooperation will be deepened, and the business environment of marketization, rule of law and internationalization will be further optimized.

Deepen investment and technical cooperation with multinational enterprises in the fields of automotive chips and basic software, guide industry institutions to establish an international development and innovation alliance for automotive enterprises, strengthen low-carbon development cooperation with relevant countries and regions in the whole industry chain, and promote the formation of a mutually recognized carbon emission and carbon footprint accounting system.
On the same day, the China Light Industry Federation and the China Battery Industry Association also awarded Yibin as the "Capital of China's Power Batteries".
