Aug 13, 2018 ... Automotive Energy Supply Corporation (AESC) ... Hefei Guoxuan High-tech Power Energy Co., Ltd ... Lithium Energy Japan (LEJ) Top 20 Lithium-Ion Battery Manufacturing Companies 2018 - Visiongain Report LONDON, August 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Market Share Analysis of Leading Companies Including Financial Data & Analysis of Battery Production Facilities for Applications in Automotive Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV), Grid Energy Storage Technologies (EST), Renewable Energy, Industrial & Consumer Electronics The development of the automotive battery market is important for the automotive sector as batteries serve different automotive applications in alternate and conventional products. Increasing adoption of electric vehicles with favourable government initiatives including subsidies and tax rebates will encourage demand for Lithium-Ion batteries. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are key application areas. Lithium-ion batteries use a cobalt-based cathode and a graphite-based anode owing to high energy density achieved by the combination. High energy density increases the power storage and can energise electronics and applications with high power requirements. Compared to other types of batteries, Lithium-Ion batteries can deliver upwards of 3.6 volts, which is three times higher. With increasing concerns over energy security and carbon emission issues, there has been a significant increase in the adoption of renewable and nuclear sources for power generation. This leads to an increased focus on more efficient and reliable energy storage and therefore, augmenting the demand for lithium-ion batteries.

Apr 14, 2010 ... Tokyo/Kyoto, April 14, 2010 - Lithium Energy Japan (LEJ) has decided ... Motors Corporation's new-generation i-MiEV electric vehicles (EV). HOME >  News・Events >  Press Release >  Corporate Lithium Energy Japan Commits to Construction of New Plant - New Ritto Plant (Japan) to Begin Full Mass Production of Lithium-ion Batteries for 50,000 Electric Vehicles Per Year in 2012 - Tokyo/Kyoto, April 14, 2010 - Lithium Energy Japan (LEJ) has decided to build a new Plant in Ritto City, Shiga Pref., Japan. The new Ritto plant will start production in early 2012. The new plant will produce 4.4 million cells a year, enough to power 50,000 of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation's new-generation i-MiEV electric vehicles (EV). The total investment in plant and equipment will amount to 37.5 billion yen. LEJ commenced mass production at its Kusatsu Plant 1st Line last June, and has since been operating at full capacity, producing 200,000 cells (enough for 2,300 EVs) a year. The 2nd Line will begin operations this June, enabling LEJ to ship an additional 400,000 cells (enough for 4,500 EVs), bringing LEJ's annual production from Kusatsu up to 600,000 cells (enough for 6,800 EVs). Furthermore, LEJ has started investing in a production line at its Kyoto works (GS Yuasa's Kyoto Office), and from December 2010, will produce 1 million cells a year (enough for 11,000 EVs). LEJ has succeeded in developing technologies to produce the large capacity lithium-ion cells in the specially designed mass production line, and is now prepared to launch full-scale operations capable of meeting the needs of more than 10,000 EVs per year. By the second half of fiscal year 2012, when the Ritto Plant begins operations, LEJ will be capable of producing 6 million cells (enough for 67,800 EVs) through these three production bases of Kusatsu, Kyoto, and Ritto. LEJ aims to expand its Japanese operations to accommodate 100,000 EVs per year in the future.

Helping to build a low-carbon society through the use of lithium-ion batteries Lithium Energy Japan was established in 2007 by GS Yuasa Corporation, Mitsubishi Corporation and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation with the aim of developing, manufacturing and marketing lithium-ion batteries for automotive and industrial use. Mass production began in 2009 for the Mitsubishi Motors “i-MiEV,” the world's first mass-produced electric vehicle, and the company is also a supplier to the Mitsubishi Motors Outlander Plug-in Hybrid EV (PHEV), the world's most successful PHEV in terms of sales. Since then, the company has been helping to build a low-carbon society through the electrification of mobility and distributed power supplies. In addition to supplying large electricity storage systems installed at renewable energy facilities, such as the 720 MWh electricity storage facility, one of the world's largest, installed by North Hokkaido Wind Energy Transmission Corporation alongside a large-scale wind farm, it also supplies electricity storage systems for residential use. Lithium-ion batteries use a chemical reaction in which lithium ions flow back and forth between the cathode and the anode, resulting in a battery that can be charged and discharged repeatedly. They are lighter and more compact than other rechargeable batteries, and have a long life, which has enabled them to spread into a variety of applications, including automotive electrification, large-scale electricity storage in the power generation sector, residential electricity storage, and a range of industrial applications (emergency-use power supplies for telecommunications base stations, commercial facilities and factories, as well as forklift trucks, construction machinery, railways and ships, etc.). Mitsubishi Corporation is developing a business to supply the optimal lithium-ion batteries for such applications.
