As China gets to work on a low-carbon economy and the use of new energy vehicles, a Guangdong province company sees nothing but promising development prospects.

The Huizhou Epower Electronics Co Ltd, founded in 2006, is a leading solution provider of battery management system (BMS), a key part in battery production, in China.

Shenzhen-listed Desay Battery Technology Co Ltd is one of its major shareholders.

The BMS is a core component of a vehicle battery system because it monitors the battery charge.

"The development of new energy vehicles in China will speed up since the country is promoting their use and recently issued national standards on that," noted a senior Huizhou Epower executive.

"We will try to develop deeper cooperation with automobile makers as well as battery suppliers in China and abroad to keep our BMS lead as it is."

He said that Huizhou Epower's technological innovations and breakthroughs, combined with Desay Battery's advantages in R&D, manufacturing and quality control in the area of small and medium-sized portable power supplies have sharpened Epower' competitive edge.

"You may have noticed the special vehicles in operation at the Shanghai World Expo. About 100 of them are equipped with a BMS that we supplied," the executive exclaimed.

And the buses that commuted between Pudong and Puxi in the tunnel under the Huangpu River speaks volumes for the BMS performance.

Even before the Expo, 100 buses equipped with Epower's BMS were in service in 2008 during the Beijing Olympic Games, and got immediate attention.

According to the Epower executive, they have supplied buses made by Dongfeng, Foton and Xiamen Kinglong with BMS, as well as other special Foton and Zhuzhou CSR Times Electric vehicles, not to mention cars from Chana, Geely, Lifan, JAC and Zotyen.

Epower has also formed a very close relationship with Beijing Jiaotong University, which has a strong R&D team and staff members who make up 66 percent of Epower's employees.

The company also has 37 patents, 18 of them its own inventions. Its products can supply almost all e-vehicles and fit all battery types.
