A list of 14 cutting-edge technologies in new energy vehicles was released on Monday at the 2020 World New Energy Vehicle Congress in Haikou, Hainan province.

Ouyang Minggao, a professor at Tsinghua University and an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, announced the top technologies on display.

Seven developments — including the integration of an EV battery pack with blade cells, and an 800-volt SiC inverter technology — were listed as innovative.

According to the selection criteria, innovative technologies must already have industrial applications with products in volume production.

The list of cutting-edge ideas included seven items, such as environmental perception technology and a computing platform for autonomous driving technology and high density GaN on Si power module technology.

This category refers to a forward-looking, pioneering and exploratory technology that has a high potential to be an important fundamental technology in the future of NEV product development.

The selections were made by a panel of 27 well-known experts and scholars in the NEV field, led by big names such as Wolfgang Bernhart, senior partner of Roland Berger GmbH; and Hans Georg Engel, senior executive vice-president and head of R&D, program management and procurement Mercedes Benz China.

Themed "Join hands in tiding over difficulties, cross-sector integration and win-win cooperation", the four-day event includes broad exchanges of technical information and ideas on a variety of topics, such as integration, development and cross-sector collaboration; technological change; and NEV technology innovation.
