Relevant standards for lithium-ion power batteries in Japan
One of Japan’s achievements in the new energy vehicle industry is its mature hybrid technology. Japan is a world leader in lithium-ion battery research. Japan has become the most advanced country in the research and application of new energy vehicles and power batteries in the world at this stage. Thanks to its conceptual foundation in building an ecological economic society and scientific and mature industrialization ideas, a continuous legal and policy system has been introduced. Effective government-industry, academic, and research cooperation, as well as years of patiently operating terminal cultivation work, have enabled the concepts of energy conservation, emission reduction, and the use of renewable energy to penetrate into the behavior of governments and auto manufacturers, deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and give birth to a good industrial environment. .
“Walking on two legs” is the core of Japan’s new energy vehicle strategy. The Japanese government will improve the performance of internal combustion engine vehicles as the lifeline of the automotive industry, and at the same time vigorously promote the development and production of new generation vehicles, forming a new energy vehicle as the main line and tax incentives. , Electric vehicle development system supported by fiscal and taxation policies such as subsidies for car purchases and loans. The 1995 “Green Tax System” reduced taxes on low-pollution, low-emission, and low-fuel consumption vehicles, and increased taxes on vehicles with greater environmental load; the “Law on Promoting the Procurement of Environmentally Friendly Products by State Agencies and Other Departments, etc.” was enacted in 2000. “(The “Green Purchasing Law”) listed low-emission vehicles as a priority for government procurement; in 2004, the “New Energy Industrialization Vision” was issued to greatly improve the international competitiveness of Benshi’s new energy industry. In 2006, the “New Country” was promulgated. The “Energy Strategy” further improves the level of hybrid technology, promotes the diversification of fuels such as bioethanol and diesel, and promotes the development and popularization of electric and fuel cell vehicle technologies.
In 2007, the “New Generation Vehicles and Fuel Plan” was proposed. Through phased “government-industry-university” cooperation, it is planned to popularize 13.5 million “next-generation vehicles” by 2020. In 2030, reduce the oil dependence of the transportation sector to 80%, and vigorously develop new-generation power batteries and other new energy vehicle technologies to create a world-class friendly automobile society; in 2007, the “21st Century Strategy for Building a Country on the Environment” officially introduced new energy Automobiles are one of the development goals for entering a low-carbon economy and society in 2050; in 2010, the “New Generation Automobile Strategy” was released, proposing to sell new cars in Japan by 2020 and achieve 50% of the total sales of new generation vehicles such as electric and hybrid vehicles. The goal is to build 2 million ordinary charging stations and 5,000 fast charging stations by then.
From assisting in the construction of electric vehicle infrastructure to providing advanced preferential treatment to consumers who are willing to purchase hybrid and pure electric vehicles. Know and build trust. The Japanese government began to implement a preferential tax policy for the purchase of environmentally friendly vehicles in April 2009. Depending on the nature and indicators of the vehicle, it provides 100%, 75% or 50% of the purchase tax and weight tax. According to estimates, the initial government subsidies made the investment cost of new energy higher than traditional energy, but from the perspective of long-term social benefits, the cost was lower.
CHAdeMO Association was established in Japan in March 2010, aiming to promote “electric vehicle interface standardization and infrastructure network laying”. The CHAdeMO protocol (rapid charging method) is for all types of electric vehicles, and realizes the optimal fast charging method for their respective characteristics, which plays a huge role in rational investment in charging infrastructure. As of August 19, 2010, more than 270 automobile manufacturers, charger manufacturers and other enterprise groups from all over the world, including the well-known automobile manufacturers Toyota Motor Corporation and Nissan Motor Company, have joined the agreement. As more and more automobile companies and charger manufacturers adopt the CHAdeMO protocol, it will become an official international standard.
