On March 8, at the first extraordinary general meeting of Gree Electric Appliances in 2017, the 20 billion yuan "cooperation agreement" and related party transaction proposal signed by the company and Zhuhai Yinlong New Energy Co., Ltd. was successfully passed. This means that Gree Electric and Zhuhai Yinlong will carry out more in-depth cooperation, and lithium titanate technology will be pushed by the two giants.

Where does Yinlong lithium titanate battery technology come from? Can it become mainstream in the market?

In 2010, Yinlong spent more than RMB 300 million to acquire 53.6% of the shares of AoTi Nanotechnology Company in the United States, and mastered the company's latest technology of lithium titanate materials; from 2012 to 2013, Yinlong successively acquired Zhuhai Guangtong Automobile, Shijiazhuang Zhongbo Automobile thus has the qualification to produce complete vehicles. At the same time, Yinlong was also seen in the first batch of new energy vehicle recommended catalogs.(Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment)

So far, there are only two companies with lithium titanate materials that have achieved power and industrial applications. Zhuhai Yinlong is one of them, and the other is Japan's Toshiba.

Lithium titanate batteries are still not the mainstream of battery technology. At present, domestic auto manufacturers use ternary lithium batteries and lithium iron phosphate batteries more often. Ternary lithium batteries dominate the global market. For example, the Panasonic 18650 battery used by Tesla is a ternary lithium battery, while BYD is the representative, and commercial vehicle manufacturers such as Dongfeng and Jianghuai are using iron phosphate at this stage. lithium battery.

According to the data, the application of lithium titanate power battery in the market is mainly based on new energy passenger cars and public transportation. In addition, it is also used in the energy storage market and related industries. The more famous cases of lithium titanate industrialization include Japan's Toshiba SCiB lithium battery, American Austrian Titanium, and domestic Weihong Power, Zhuhai Yinlong, etc., mainly in the fields of energy storage and EV. Judging from the characteristics of stability, safety and long service life of lithium titanate, the feasibility of using it in the fields of energy storage and electric buses will be relatively high.

Complement each other, mutual benefit and win-win!

On March 4, Gree just held the Gree Intelligent Equipment Conference in Beijing, and a number of its self-developed robots made public appearances. At the press conference, some companies that have already used Gree intelligent equipment products spoke at the conference, including Zhuhai Yinlong. In the promotional video played at the meeting, Zhuhai Yinlong said that after using Gree's intelligent equipment, the production efficiency was increased by 11%, the labor cost was saved by 55%, and the product consistency was increased by 6%.

Gree Electric intends to cooperate with Zhuhai Yinlong in the fields of intelligent equipment, molds, casting, automotive air conditioning, motor electronic control, new energy vehicles, and energy storage. This move is to cut into the new energy vehicle industry chain, energy storage and battery manufacturing equipment fields, and create a new industrial growth point for the company.

I have to admire Dong Mingzhu's tenacity. In addition to investing real money in Yinlong, he also tied Yinlong to his chariot by means of connected transactions. It was originally believed that Dong Mingzhu’s acquisition of Yinlong was to build cars, but from the current point of view, Gree wants to enter the automotive air conditioner. Even if this is a strategy adjustment due to failed mergers and acquisitions, this idea is obviously more feasible than the original one. Gree, which is an air conditioner, entered into automotive air conditioners, and it was a matter of course.

In fact, at last year's Guangzhou Auto Show, the "Gree Yinlong" bus had already been unveiled. The black and red colors were particularly conspicuous, and the Gree brand slogan "Let the world fall in love with Made in China" was printed on the body. It is understood that the bus is a bus type jointly designed by Gree and Zhuhai Yinlong and is going to be promoted in Zhuhai. 60 vehicles were put into production in the early stage and have been put into use during the Zhuhai Air Show.
