Audi 與 Alta Devices 合作開發具備有太陽能屋頂的汽車

Audi 與 Alta Devices 簽署合作契約,共同開發具有集成高效太陽能電池的汽車

Audi 和 Alta Devices 計劃共同合作將太陽能電池集成到奧迪車型的全景玻璃屋頂。通過這種合作的目標是產生太陽能,以增加奧迪電動汽車的範圍。第一個原型將在2017年底前開發。

作為第一步,Audi 和 Alta Devices 將太陽能電池整合到全景玻璃屋頂。未來由於Alta Devices的技術具有獨特的靈活性,薄型化和高效率,幾乎整個屋頂表面都將被太陽能電池覆蓋。從電池產生的電力將流入汽車的電力系統,並且可以提供例如空調系統和座椅加熱器 - 效率的提高對奧迪電動車輛的範圍具有直接的積極影響。

“電動汽車的範圍對我們的客戶起著決定性的作用。奧迪設備管理協會董事長Bernd Martens博士說:“與Alta Devices和Hanergy合作,我們計劃在我們的電動汽車上安裝創新的太陽能技術,從而擴大其範圍,並且可持續發展。在稍後階段,太陽能可以直接對奧迪電動汽車的牽引電池充電。

“這將是實現可持續,無排放流動性的一個里程碑,”馬滕斯說。綠色電力將由Alta Devices創新的太陽能電池產生。這些太陽能電池非常薄且靈活,保持了世界紀錄的效率,並且在低光和高溫環境中表現非常好。

Hanergy薄膜電力集團有限公司高級副總裁Jian Ding,Alta Devices公司首席執行官兼奧迪/ Hanergy薄膜太陽能電池研發項目聯合負責人表示:“與奧迪的合作關係是Alta Devices與高端汽車品牌的第一次合作通過結合Alta Devices在太陽能技術方面的持續突破與奧迪汽車行業的未來發展,我們將定義未來的太陽能汽車。“
