Green Innovation Is the Mark of New Leaders in MIT Technology Review Insights’ Annual Global Decarbonization Ranking

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Produced by MIT Technology Review Insights in association with Morgan Stanley, Citrix, and Iris Ceramica Group, The Green Future Index 2022 is the second annual comparative ranking of 76 countries and territories on the progress and commitment they are making toward a green future by reducing carbon emissions, developing clean energy, and innovating in green sectors, as well as the degree to which governments are implementing effective climate policies.

Based on research conducted between October 2021 and January 2022, the interactive Index shows which countries are progressing fastest in global efforts to decarbonize and limit global heating.

The key findings of this year’s report are as follows:
Europe’s Green Leadership maintained for a second year. In the 2022 rankings, 14 of the top 20 scorers have remained largely in place year over year. Sixteen of the “Green Leaders” are from Europe: Iceland and Denmark still hold the number one and two spots, respectively, and third and fourth places are now held by the Netherlands and the UK. The UK (ranked 17th last year) has become particularly aggressive in directing investment toward its clean energy transition: nearly 36% of the country’s power came from clean sources toward the end of 2021, and Britain intends for that percentage to be 100% by 2035.New leaders are innovators. New entrants to the top-ranked cohort include South Korea, Japan, and the United States; all three have seen significant rises in their innovation scores thanks to their world-leading green intellectual property contributions (Korea leads the world in green patents) and notable increases in pivoting infrastructure spending toward clean and green projects.Many move up to the Greening Middle. The Greening Middle includes several European countries that have made significant policy and energy infrastructure investment gains, including Greece, which has earmarked 30% of its total EU recovery fund package for clean energy transition efforts. It also includes China (rising from 45th in 2021 to 26th in 2022), which continues to make significant gains in green society transitions (including purchasing more than half of the world’s electric vehicles in 2021).Several Green Leaders lose momentum. The steady rise of Green Leaders demonstrates the determination of economies with both committed policy infrastructure and mature green innovation ecosystems. It also highlights a widening gap between leaders with strong scores in all pillars and those where one or more pillars is weaker. Several previous Green Leaders appear to have lost momentum, including Singapore, New Zealand, and Costa Rica, which fell from seventh in 2021 to 20th in 2022.Climate Laggards include notable sliders and risers. The Climate Laggards cohort includes India, which has begun to make firmer policy commitments to decarbonization, but its green efforts are overshadowed by an ongoing pandemic recovery plan that continues to favor traditional industries. By contrast, a couple of economies (notably Pakistan and Hong Kong) have seen increased green infrastructure investment and firmer sustainable policy frameworks, raising their scores out of the lowest cohort.The pandemic challenged already weighed-down Climate Abstainers. Last-ranked Climate Abstainers have largely remained the same as 2021: economies that either lack political will to pursue green agendas or are even more weighed down by their existing resource-based economies to make any real headway, especially as the effects of the pandemic continue into a third year. These include two countries that have seen their green agendas far overshadowed by the detrimental effects of covid-19: Argentina (dropping from 59th to 68th this year) and Indonesia (falling from 57th to 70th).To view the research findings, visit the interactive page or click here to download the report.For more information, please contact us at [email protected]

MUNICH, May 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Limited (CATL), a global leader of new energy innovative technologies, is in the spotlight with its award-winning all-scenario energy storage solutions at the ees Europe 2022, the largest and most international exhibition for batteries and energy storage systems in Europe, which was held from May 11-13 at Messe München, Munich.

CATL’s cutting-edge products demonstrated at the exhibition cover application scenarios of power generation, power transmission and distribution, and power consumption. EnerOne, the modular outdoor liquid cooling BESS, won this year’s ees AWARD on May 10. Equipped with 280 Ah LFP cells, the flagship product boasts a cycle life of up to 10,000 cycles, featuring long service life, high integration, and high degree of safety. Temperature difference among cells can be controlled within 3 degrees Celsius, a great improvement over industry average of 5 to 8 degrees Celsius. It has a floor space of just 1.69 square meters, 35% less than traditional air cooling products, and is suitable for inverters with operating voltages ranging from 600 to 1,500 volts. Meanwhile, the modular design enables it to adapt to a variety of application scenarios.

To meet the market demand for all-weather energy storage applications, such as extreme temperatures, high humidity, desert, ocean, among others, CATL has developed the innovative EnerC, a containerized liquid-cooling battery system. With IP55 and C5 anti-corrosion protection, EnerC is able to meet the requirements of various harsh climatic conditions, ensuring the safe and reliable operation of the whole system for 20 years. Empowered by the industry-leading highly-integrated liquid cooling design, its energy density can reach 259.7 kWh per square meter, almost a 200% increase over traditional air cooling systems.

At the power consumption side, EnerU, CATL’s blockbuster for the UPS application, offers a trailblazing solution for the replacement of lead-acid backup batteries with more environment friendly lithium-ion ones. By overcoming the high impedance of LFP materials, EnerU’s 6 C solution achieves high power performance and high degree of safety at the same time. In addition to safety at cell level, EneU further guarantees its safety at system level through mechanical methods and thermal insulation materials. For single cell thermal runaway situation, there is no thermal propagation to adjacent cells.

At ees Europe 2022, CATL also displayed 48100 battery module for base stations, which features small size and light weight. Supported by substantially safe LFP cells and the 3U modular design, the product has greatly improved space utilization and service life. The 48100 base station can house up to 16 battery packs, and the number of packs can be flexibly adjusted to meet the requirements of different system backup time, which makes it compatible with multiple application scenarios.

Aside from showcasing its latest battery products and technologies at its booth B1.440, CATL also shared insights and innovative ideas on the future of energy storage with industry peers at the Intersolar Forum.

The year 2021 sees the leapfrogging development of CATL’s energy storage business as it ranked first in the market share of global energy storage battery production for the first time. CATL has forged partnership with top-tier Chinese energy enterprises including China National Energy, SPIC, China Huadian Corporation, China Three Gorges Group, China Energy Engineering Corporation as well as key international players in the industry such as NextEra, Fluence, Wartsila, Tesla, Powin, Schneider Electric and Eaton, applying its advanced energy storage solutions in major markets including China, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, etc. In the future, CATL will join forces with more partners to promote energy transition and contribute to global efforts for carbon neutrality.
