Agencies predict that in the next five years, the number of shared bicycles in China will exceed 100 million. Along with increasingly higher standards and stronger management, PV-equipped shared bicycles in the bike-sharing scheme will become regular. Accordingly, 500 MW is a conservative estimate of the demand for solar PV panels in the bike-sharing business. Currently, Hanergy has started its cooperation with several bike-sharing businesses such as Mobike. The first batch of Mobikes under the cooperation deal are all installed with Hanergy's 5.5W MiaSolé thin-film solar modules, generating green power continuously for the Beidou GPS module and Internet of Things chip embedded inside the Mobike smart lock.
In contrast with other PV modules, Hanergy's thin-film solar modules are lightweight, flexible, and reliable, among other features. The design can withstand rough terrain riding, and power generation won't be affected when the vehicle falls, weight dropping, and summer hail. In addition, Hanergy's thin-film solar modules have good performance under weak light. Power generation won't be affected either the modules are in the shade or sheltered.
An exemplar of cooperation on "mobile energy+Internet" innovation, Hanergy's cooperation with bike-sharing businesses indicates the confidence and determination of Chinese enterprises to bring about changes in consumption and production patterns and improve ecological environment. As a global leader in thin-film solar power, Hanergy is dedicated to providing the best mobile energy products and solutions to our partners.
