A new battery was made in China this year, with a power density of 255 W/kg, ensuring a 1,000 km range.
From 2012 to 2021, the area of land allocated for construction purposes per unit of the country’s GDP will decrease by 40.85%, and the economic density of China’s land will increase significantly.
Density is increased by the economical and intensive exploitation of resources. “Achieving the greatest economic and social benefits at the lowest cost to resources and the environment” has become a common view of the Chinese people and the direction of their efforts. Compared with 2012, China’s energy intensity, carbon emission intensity, and water intensity decreased by 26.4%, 34.4 percent, and 45%, respectively, in 2021, and the production rate of major resources increased by about 58 percent.
The most important thing to improve “density” is the ability to innovate.
China ranks 11th in the Global Innovation Index, rising 23 places compared to 2012, and entering the ranks of innovative countries. China is striving for high-quality development in various fields by actively changing the mode of development, whether it is the development of integrated circuits, biomedicine, artificial intelligence, and other new industries, or the development of the low-carbon digital economy and other new fields.
Improving “density” requires higher quality and industry efficiency. China has created key technologies in the manufacture of new energy vehicles such as batteries, motors, and electronic control devices, creating an integrated industrial system. China has ranked first in the world in terms of production and sales of new energy vehicles for seven consecutive years. The desire of the Chinese auto industry to record a new developmental leap becomes a reality, back to the breakthroughs in the field of new energy.
