Xian, China, Sept. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- China Recycling Energy Corp. (NASDAQ: CREG; "CREG" or "the Company"), a leading industrial waste-to-energy solution provider in China, today announced that Shanghai TCH Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (“Shanghai TCH”), the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, has recently entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent (the “LOI”) to acquire controlling ownership of Xi’an Yineng Zhihui Technology Co., Ltd. ("YNZH"), a firm based in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, specializing in smart energy management platform.
YNZH is a leading operator and service provider of energy storage solution on consumer side with the biggest electricity power storage station on a standalone basis and in terms of total capacity and number of customers being served. With the integration of power generation, distribution, transmission, storage and consumption in alternative energy and smart grid, YNZH utilizes big data, intelligence control, cloud computing and AI etc. in its power storage stations to achieve transformation to smart energy solution from conventional system and to pursue energy technology intelligence, power lifecycle digitalization, and smart power operating platform. Its dedication in developing an international leading holistic solution in smart energy operating system is expected to place YNZH the forefront of smart energy management industry. Highlights of its achievements span from its proprietary “Cloud-based Smart Power Management Platform”, the application of big data in power storage, and unmanned power stations. Alongside its accumulation of increasing amount of data, YNZH has also become a proven operator in safety and efficiency, letting itself to integrate deeply as energy administrator with its clients and to rapidly penetrate into power storage market.
Mr. Ku, Chairman of the Board of Directors of China Recycling Energy commented: “We are excited about the opportunity to acquire controlling ownership of YNZH. YNZH is a vanguard in developing and operating smart energy management platform in China with business model similar to Tesla’s Powerwall business, essentially storing excess energy during non-peak times to support the grid's peak loads with saving in energy cost and attractive return to investment to consumers. They took the lead in investing, constructing and managing a number of electric energy storage projects. The tri-level alarm mechanism on its cloud platform can accurately monitor the working conditions of each battery. Its highly reliable security measures and precise remote control system allow high-efficiency operation and maintenance of 24-hour unattended stations and multiple stations managed by single person, resulting in saving in human resources, reduction of the marginal cost and enhancement of industry competitiveness. Its standardized, fast, low cost, high safety and flexible energy storage solutions are expected to attract more and more business and investment opportunities. We can rely on not only the their cutting edge energy storage technology, but also expect explorational growth from this new vertical to reap benefits in energy solution, economy and environment.
"We are very pleased to enter an in-depth cooperation in strategy and capital with CREG, a US listed company," commented by Ms. Xuehong Wang, Chairman and CEO of YNZH, “CREG has a wealth of experience in the traditional recycling energy industry investment and operation.
