YIBIN, China, July 25, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

An international power battery industry event was held in Yibin in Southwest 
China's Sichuan province from July 21 to 23, to seek better ways for the 
development of power battery industry and help realize carbon peak and carbon 
neutrality goals.

The 2022 World EV & ES Battery Conference, sponsored by the Sichuan Provincial 
People's Government and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, is 
said to be the world's first world-class power battery industry event held in 

The event drew government officials, top scientists, and industrial executives 
from power battery makers such as Contemporary Amperex Technology Co Ltd (CATL) 
and BTR (Jiangsu) New Material Technology Ltd, and electric vehicle makers such 
as BYD and Nio.

It not only showcased the latest achievements in cutting-edge power battery 
technology and green and low-carbon travel, but also featured discussions on 
important issues in the power battery industry.

Industry representatives from the China Battery Industry Association, Panasonic 
Holdings, CATL, BYD and other institutions and enterprises jointly signed the 
"2022 World EV & ES Battery Conference (Yibin) Declaration", promising to 
increase investment in research and development, accelerate green development, 
accelerate industry collaboration, strengthen international exchange, and help 
build a cleaner and more beautiful world and a community with a shared future 
for mankind.

An industry development report and an industry development index were also 
released at the conference, serving as a useful reference for the development 
of the power battery industry.

Agreements for a total of 48 power battery and new energy vehicle auxiliary 
projects were signed at the conference, with 96.2 billion yuan ($14.2 billion) 
in investment. These projects are expected to further boost industry 
development in Yibin, the host city of the conference.

As a rising "city of power batteries", Yibin has developed a complete power 
battery industrial chain. CATL, a world-leading EV battery provider, has 
invested 64 billion yuan in Yibin, building the world's largest single-power 
battery production base with an annual output of 235 gigawatt-hours.

Ouyang Minggao, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that 
China's power battery industry will move to the west, especially to Sichuan, 
and Yibin "will be a global production base of power batteries".
