First PV charging station on plateau holds test run
China's first electric vehicle photovoltaic (PV) charging station on the plateau has been put into trial operation, according to a senior of a key laboratory in southwest China's Tibet.
Hong Liang, director of the Tibet Solar Photovoltaic and Thermal Utilization Key Laboratory, revealed the Tibet's new achievement in the field of solar energy application.
Next, the photovoltaic charging station will undergo a period of performance testing for improvement. Once the charging station's run is stabilized, it will be inspected in October of this year.
"After successful research, we hope to be able to integrate it with the market," Hong Liang said, "With improvements of people's living standard, the number of vehicles on the road has increased each year. In order to conserve energy, reduce emissions, and avoid a depletion of resources, we believe new clean energy applications will be the future of development."
Tibet's solar energy resources rank first in the nation and are one of the most abundant in the world. Tibet gets an average of 3,000-3,600 hours of sunlight per year. It is estimated that solar energy absorbed by the roof of a car one day can make one incandescent ligh of 100 watts t last for about 10 hours in Lhasa, capital city of Tibet.
