薄型鋰電池再進化!Panasonic新品、重複彎曲也不怕壞

鋰電池

Panasonic 29日發布新聞稿宣布,已研發出即便重複彎曲也能維持電池性能的薄型可撓式(Flexible)鋰離子電池產品(見附圖)。

Panasonic指出,該款電池產品厚度為0.5mm,經過實驗證實,即便重複彎曲1,000次、充電容量也不會因此減少,預估可應用於卡片型裝置、智慧手錶等穿戴式裝置以及智慧型服飾等用途。

Panasonic表示,該款可撓式鋰離子電池產品將在2016年10月下旬進行樣品出貨,且今後將持續進行薄型化研究、確立量產技術,目標2018年開始進行量產。

據日本媒體指出,可彎曲的電池目前已使用在智慧手錶等產品上,不過現行的薄型鋰離子電池重複彎曲後,就會讓電極受損、性能劣化,而像Panasonic上述能重複彎曲、且不會影響性能的電池產品則為業界首見。

根據嘉實XQ全球贏家系統報價,Panasonic 30日早盤大跌3.37%、暫收1,002日圓。

太陽能

上證報報導,大陸國家發改委昨(29)日發布《關於調整新能源標杆併網電價的通知(徵求意見稿)》,其中重點提到三類新能源併網電價的變化,其中變化最大的是太陽能電價,擬將地面電站一類、二類、三類資源區太陽能併網電價擬調整為0.55元(人民幣,下同)、0.65元和0.75元,較現行電價標準分別降低了0.25元、0.23元和0.23元,即降幅分別為31%、26%和23%;新政執行時間預計在明(2017)年1月1日。

此外,新政同時調整了分散式太陽能發電專案補貼標準,新補貼分別為一類資源區0.2元/度、二類資源區0.25元/度、三類資源區0.3元/度,相較原來的0.42元/度,大幅下調了40%左右。

中國可再生能源學會專家李鵬看法指出,現行的太陽能併網標杆電價已執行兩年多,原到期時間應是今年6月30日;此次徵求意見稿對併網電價大幅下調,亦順應了太陽能產業發展變化。

Canadian Wireless Services Forecast, 2016–2020: Wireless Wars 13

This IDC study updates our previous market forecast (see Canadian Wireless Services Forecast, 2015–2019: Wireless Wars 12, IDC #CA11TM15, November 2015). It provides:

  • Canadian cellular penetration and revenue data for 2015
  • Five-year projections of the Canadian wireless voice and nonvoice mobile data markets in terms of both subscribers and revenue for 2016–2020
  • Wireless revenue forecast for the consumer and business segments by firm size
  • Monthly average revenue per unit (ARPU) forecasts on both blended and segmented basis
  • A description of key drivers and inhibitors that are impacting the wireless sector in Canada
  • Analysis of significant market developments and trends in 2015–2016
  • Advice for wireless providers to capitalize on the growth opportunities presented by the burgeoning wireless market

“The rise of a mobile workforce coupled with increasing wireless substitution and soaring consumption of wireless data strengthens the primacy of wireless as the preferred method of communications — and boosting wireless revenue as a proportion of total telecom revenue in Canada," says Lawrence Surtees, study author and vice president of Communications Research at IDC Canada. “The advent of gigabit wireless and need for next-generation fifth-generation (5G) wireless networks will further exponentially drive use of and spending on wireless data at the end of the current forecast period and beyond."

IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Life Science Manufacturing and Supply Chain Digital Transformation 2016 Vendor Assessment

This IDC study provides an assessment of 11 vendors providing consulting and services for digital transformation of manufacturing and supply chain processes in the life science industry. Digital transformation is occurring at a rapid pace in life science companies, including in the manufacturing and supply chain space. Internal and external sources of data are being aggregated in the cloud, and this information is being leveraged by manufacturing and supply chain groups to improve speed, efficiency, visibility, and harmonization in digital supply networks and manufacturing organizations at life science companies and global partners.

Mike Townsend, research manager for Life Science Business Systems Strategy at IDC Health Insights, says, “Life science manufacturing and supply chain networks are becoming more complex and global in nature. Companies are embracing digital transformation efforts within these areas, which can provide visibility and harmonization to stakeholders such as manufacturers, distributors, dispensers, contract manufacturing organizations, sales organizations, researchers, doctors, patients, and payers using a wide variety of digital technologies — including cloud computing, mobile technology, and social media and analytics — and leveraging a host of internal and external data sources. Life science companies will continue to see improved visibility, manufacturing and supply lead times, regulatory compliance, and productivity as they use these technologies to monitor, predict, and optimize manufacturing and supply chain performance in the life science industry."

Business Strategy: Advances in Preproduction Apparel — PLM and Product Innovation

This IDC Retail Insights report outlines several different ways preproduction has changed in recent months and years and why it’s beneficial to retailers. There are examples from some of the innovative vendors that are empowering retailers to design and source the way they want and explanations of benefits demonstrated and expected by these methods. Each of these methods independently serves retailers and wholesalers in different ways, and it’s really at the discretion of each individual retailer or wholesaler which methods are most fitting for its company, processes, and needs.

According to Victoria Brown, senior research analyst, IDC Retail Insights, “Even more than ever, we’re identifying a convergence of retail, wholesale, and manufacturing. Removing the fragmentation of industries and communication also leads to different parties expecting to have a similar experience across steps in their design and supply chain. It was once said that ‘our best experience anywhere sets our minimum expectation everywhere.’ Software providers have caught onto this notion and are giving retailers and wholesalers what they’re looking for to get their jobs done in the manner in which they want to work. For the first time in the history of IDC Manufacturing Insights’ 2016 Supply Chain Survey, retailers identified that their top priority moving forward is product quality. How will retailers move forward and maintain a high level of quality standards without the proper tools to stay competitive?"
