The winter solstice has passed, can the New Year be far away? Merry Christmas to everyone in advance!
The current domestic epidemic (COVID-19) in China is relatively serious, with a large number of infections. Many people are feverish and can’t go to work, which also leads to our Christmas gifts can’t arrive in time to be delivered to customers.
But the editor is still healthy (I am the only one in the whole office), and the gifts will be sent out as New Year’s gifts, so hopefully, everyone will have recovered by then. Today the editor continues to take stock of this week’s major information in the new energy industry.

[CATL’s German plant starts battery production].
CATL’s first factory outside of China, Contemporary Amperex Technology Thuringia GmbH (CATT), started mass production of lithium-ion batteries in December as scheduled, marking another milestone in CATL’s globalization process.
The first batch of lithium-ion cells came off the production line in the newly installed tandem state in CATT’s G2 building. The installation and commissioning of the rest of the production line are in full swing to increase production.
The locally produced cells passed all tests for CATL products worldwide, proving CATL’s ability to start up battery production and supply cells to its European customers from its local facility.
