The Shyft Group Advances Electrified Mobility With Plan For Expansive Medium-Duty All-Electric Commercial Vehicle Chassis Platform



Shyft Innovations™, The Shyft Group’s dedicated mobility research and development team, will introduce a purpose-built flat modular EV chassis to any specialty vehicle body builder. The EV-powered chassis features customizable length and wheelbase, making it well suited for a variety of vehicle types. The chassis’ modular design can accommodate multiple GVWR classifications, based on build out and usage. With this high degree of configurability, the all-electric chassis is adaptable to last mile delivery, work truck, mass transit, recreational vehicle, and other emerging EV markets.

Vehicle prototypes are expected to make their way into customer accounts for route testing early in 2022 with production expected to begin in middle of 2023.

“We’ve listened closely to our customers and to the industry at large to design this EV chassis to address an unmet need in the specialty vehicles market,” said Daryl Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Shyft Group. “We gained valuable insight from our long-term customer relationships to develop an EV chassis that will help all customers meet green mandates head-on. With a rich history in chassis engineering, body builders trust our deep domain expertise and our ability to deliver a reliable purpose-built EV platform that will deliver inherent efficiencies that positively impact the bottom line for fleet customers and owner operators alike.

“We have a well-established track record as a manufacturer of choice for purpose-built fleets. With nearly a decade of EV proficiency and over 15 years of alternative propulsion category experience, we’re a natural choice for other body builders seeking a reliable commercial grade EV chassis,” Adams said. “We believe this multi-dimensional platform has the power to fast-track EV adoption within the vocation-specific specialty vehicle category. It will be made domestically by a proven team of skilled tradespeople already building today’s most successful fleets.”

The Shyft Group’s coast-to-coast geographic footprint, with manufacturing facilities spanning 10 U.S. states from Maine to California, in addition to its facility in Mexico, provide regional manufacturing and ship-thru convenience across the full product array spanning Class 1 – Class 7 purpose-built vehicles.

Solis-Wechselrichter versorgt erste CO2-neutrale BIPV-Tankstelle von Sinopec



NINGBO, China, 18. Juni 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Die erste klimaneutrale Tankstelle mit BIPV (gebäudeintegrierter Photovoltaik) des Energie-Großkonzerns Sinopec hat den Betrieb an der Liuhua-Tankstelle in Baise, Guangxi, China, aufgenommen.  Solis hatte im Juli 2020 eine eingehende Untersuchung mit Sinopec durchgeführt, um den leistungsstarken 255kW-Wechselrichter zu einem integralen Bestandteil des Projekts zu machen. Das Projekt gilt als Durchbruch für Sinopec bei der Anwendung der dezentralisierten Solarstromerzeugung und als erste CO2-neutrale Tankstelle, die von Sinopec in Guangxi gebaut und betrieben wird.

Eine BIPV-Lösung von LONGi ist ein integraler Bestandteil der Planung vor Baubeginn. Die Lösung bietet Vorteile wie integriertes Design/integrierte Konstruktion, ein geringes Strukturgewicht und reduzierten Materialeinsatz und verlängert die Lebensdauer der Tankstellenüberdachung von 5 bis 10 auf 25 Jahre, was der Lebensdauer des Solarstromerzeugungsmoduls entspricht.

Die jährliche Stromerzeugung dieses Projekts wird voraussichtlich bei 91.000 Kilowattstunden liegen. Mehr als 10.000 Kilowattstunden überschüssiger Strom werden in das Netz eingespeist, genug, um den jährlichen Strombedarf von 12,5 Haushalten zu decken.

Das Projekt wird 81,5 Tonnen CO2-Emissionen pro Jahr reduzieren, was ausreicht, um etwa 76 Tonnen CO2-Emissionen der Tankstelle pro Jahr auszugleichen, was die Tankstelle selbst CO2-neutral macht.

Für Solis wird der 110V-Wechselrichter als Flaggschiff-Produkt mit 380V Niederspannung (passend für das chinesische Stromnetz) für C&I überall „grüne Gebäude” unterstützen.

Neben dem maximalen Wirkungsgrad von bis zu 98,7 % verfügt der Wechselrichter über eine hohe Leistungsdichte von 100 PPT/MW. Die Erlöse aus der Stromerzeugung pro MW sind um rund 3,5 % höher. Die DC-seitige Konfiguration unterstützt bis zu 150 % Überdimensionierung und das wirtschaftliche und flexible Systemdesign erklärt die Beliebtheit des Wechselrichters bei den Kunden.

Funktionen wie ein AC-Überspannungsschutz vom Typ 1 (optional) und ein Brandschutzschalter (optional) reduzieren auch die Brandgefahr auf der DC-Seite. Die Überspannungs-Lastreduzierung und die Leckstrom-Unterdrückungstechnologie reduzieren Probleme der Abschaltung unter Überspannungsbedingungen und der Auslösung unter Kriechstrombedingungen und erhöhen die Sicherheit.

Sinopec baut 160  Photovoltaik-Kraftwerke in ganz China und plant im Rahmen seines „Fünfjahresplans” den Bau von 7000 dezentralen Solarkraftwerken.  Durch die Entwicklung von unterschiedlichen Modi der CO2-Neutralisierung wie kohlenstoffneutrale Wälder und Tankstellen wird Solis Sinopec dabei unterstützen, umweltfreundliche und saubere Tankstellen zu bauen.

600W+ PV industry chain crucial in helping achieve carbon goals, says Trina Solar head



CHANGZHOU, China, June 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The high power 600W+ PV industry will play a critical role in helping China achieve its goals of achieving a CO2 emissions peak by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060, says Gao Jifan, honorary president of the China Photovoltaic Industry Association.

Gao, who is also chairman of Trina Solar, made the remarks in an address at the SNEC Expo in Shanghai, in early June.

“The key to accomplishing the goal of carbon neutrality lies in giving precedence to wind and PV power, while minimizing or even eradicating thermal power,” Gao said in his address at the expo, the world’s most influential and international solar trade fair.

Gao talked of market trends and the latest technological achievements and the way to carbon neutrality, and said new-energy industries are more important than ever before.

Renowned experts, academics, business leaders, heads of government and industry associations and other senior figures gathered to exchange views and share their experience and insight.

Talking of the historic opportunities for the PV industry Gao set out his vision for its growth.

“Industry coordination with mutual innovation and shared benefits will create a new, customer-centric industry ecosystem that will help achieve carbon neutrality,” he said.

The vision was already being realized, he said. Last year Trina Solar unveiled its 600W Vertex module series and strongly advocated deep end-to-end supply chain integration and innovation. The company led dozens of other companies to jointly found the 600W+ PV Open Innovation Ecological Alliance, which has taken the lead in promoting the high-quality growth of the 600W+ PV industry, Gao said.

The 600W+ PV industry chain drives technological innovation and harnesses the strengths of each segment while coordinating the supply chain, he said. It also promotes standardization and wards off potential risks from excessive overlapping investment in same-class technology as the industry is upgraded, he said.

The alliance now has 78 companies as members, covering the whole supply chain, including silicon wafers, cells, system integration processes and certification bodies. The aim is to restructure the supply chain into a new and complete ecosystem, Gao said,

“This opens new avenues for reducing LCOE and pushes the industry faster toward carbon neutrality both in China and worldwide.”

Trina Solar says it expects more rapid growth based on 600W+ advanced technology. Gao reiterated his vision, saying: “As the world leading PV and smart energy IoT total solutions provider, Trina Solar has now moved into the 3.0 age. Trina Solar is resolute in its mission of solar for all and will continue to do all it can to push for the creation of a new-energy, carbon-free world.”

About Trina Solar 

Founded in 1997, Trina Solar is the world leading PV and smart energy total solution provider. The company engages in PV products R&D, manufacture and sales; PV projects development, EPC, O&M; smart micro-grid and multi-energy complementary systems development and sales, as well as energy cloud-platform operation. In 2018, Trina Solar launched Energy IoT brand, established the Trina Energy IoT Industrial Development Alliance together with leading enterprises and research institutes in China and around the world, and founded the New Energy IoT Industrial Innovation Center. With these actions, Trina Solar is committed to working with its partners to build the energy IoT ecosystem and develop an innovation platform to explore New Energy IoT, as it strives to be a leader in global intelligent energy.
