  7. Audi and Hanergy collaborate...

[YesAuto News] A few days ago, according to foreign media reports, Audi announced that it has teamed up with Alta, a subsidiary of China's Hanergy Group, to cooperate on solar roof technology projects. This technology will be used in the design of car panoramic sunroofs in the future, through the roof solar power to provide energy for seat heating, air conditioning and battery management systems. Both parties will demonstrate a prototype of this technology at the end of this year.

At present, the conversion efficiency of thin-film flexible solar cells used in this project exceeds 25%, and has the characteristics of thin thickness and flexible application methods, even under low light and high temperature conditions.

Audi said that it hopes that in the future solar cells can directly provide electricity for new energy vehicles, thereby increasing the vehicle's endurance. If this technology is realized, it will be a milestone for the new energy industry. Alta also said that by combining its own solar cell technology with Audi's advantages in the automotive field, it hopes that a real solar car can be built in the future.
