Huawei to sell large capacity battery for renewable energy in Japan
With the growing demand for renewable energy, large-scale battery storage will be needed to conserve the power for a stable supply. According to NikkeiAsia, Huawei will start selling the large-scale battery system for renewable energy storage in Japan in March 2022.
As per the information, Japan is moving away from fossil fuels and shifting to renewable energy. The nation aims to have renewables account for 36% to 38% of energy generation by 2030. The lack of additional capacity in its power grid makes facilities for temporary storage that much more important.
However, Huawei is already a supplier of the small household battery system in Japan. Now, the Chinese tech maker will purchase small battery packs from CATL and bundle them into shipping container-sized units that can each store 2,000 kilowatt-hours of energy — roughly 200 times as much as a standard home battery.
Also, the container capacity can be adjusted based on the buyer’s needs. To be mentioned, Huawei is stepping its feet in the renewable power storage system sector, which is also already occupied by Tesla. Since last year, Tesla has been selling its own large battery system in Japan.
According to the research firm Fuji Keizai, the Japanese market for battery storage for solar and wind power to grow from an estimated 16.7 billion yen ($146 million) in 2020 to 45.8 billion yen in 2030.
Moreover, Huawei’s Japanese arm is eyeing the Hokkaido market, where there is much potential for renewable energy generation but a lack of spare grid capacity. Also, Huawei Japan President James Chen said that “rapid development in solar power technology and cost reduction” in Japan.
On the other hand, Tesla has already installed its first Megapack in Japan last April at a research facility in Ibaraki Prefecture run by Takasago Thermal Engineering. The system controls power flows from solar and biomass gasification facilities there.
This summer season, it is ready to start up a Megapack in Hokkaido connected directly to the transmission grid, to be operated by emerging power provider Global Engineering. However, Japan Renewable Energy, a power company recently acquired by oil wholesaler Eneos Holdings, has said it is using a Tesla battery system in a demonstration project.
Japan has its own producers of large battery systems, such as NGK Insulators and Sumitomo Electric Industries that deliver dozens per year to customers inside and outside Japan.
But the Power companies including Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings, and trading houses such as Sumitomo Corp. and Marubeni are looking forward for commercialize large storage systems made up of linked auto batteries.
Tesla Japan is expected to sell its systems for $440 per kWh or less, and Huawei aims to be competitive with that price. Meanwhile, an executive at an emerging power company Japan said “When we get batteries, we pick the company with the lowest cost,” that is involved in renewable energy.
Huawei and China Unicom achieves new breakthrough in 5G super uplink technology
Huawei and China Unicom have recently adapted 5G super uplink “cross-site” flexible pairing technology for the first time in the industry. This triggered the first to use, large-scale commercial use of the entire network system.
Also, the latest collaboration between Huawei and China Unicom further strengthens the cooperation between two firms and promotes the joint operation of the 5G network and technology as well as efficiently promotes the development of the 5G super uplink industry.
5G Super Uplink:
With 5G super uplink “cross-site” flexible pairing technology, the optimal super uplink pairing between a TDD (Time Division Duplex) cell and a nearby FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) cell can be achieved, which can effectively improve 5G The effective ratio of super uplink users improves 5G network coverage and user experience.
Tests on the live network show that Guangzhou Unicom adopts the 5G super uplink “cross-site” flexible pairing technology, which increases the uplink coverage of edge users by an average of 5dB.
As a result, the experience of users with effective super uplink has been greatly improved. The proportion of low-rate experience of super uplink users on the entire network has been reduced from 15% to 3%, and the corresponding 5G traffic has also increased by 5 – 10%.
Guangzhou, as the “capital of live broadcast e-commerce”, ranks among the top in the country for live broadcast e-commerce. The proportion of 5G video application traffic is around 60%, and applications such as live broadcast, online meetings, online courses, high-definition pictures and large file uploads are becoming more and more popular.
The large-scale deployment of 5G Super Uplink will bring the coverage and capacity improvement at the edge of the network, which will enable China Unicom Super Uplink users to enter the 1080p Full HD and 4K Ultra HD era for their uplink video experience, and continue to meet users’ growing uplink service experience and requirements.
