Products and Services
With the vision of "We Power the World with Sustainable/Renewable Energy and High Efficiency Power Supply," AcBel has actively incorporated highly-competitive technological advantage to develop high efficiency and eco-friendly products. In addition, AcBel has created a green energy convergence service business model: generate, transform, use and store electricity as well as convergence service, and invested in energy market, bringing incremental increase of profits for the company.
The sales volume of the power supply products in 2020 were approximately 72 million, up by 3% from the previous year. With the increasingly growing prospect for the sales of consumer and industrial power supply units, it is estimated the sales target would reach 77.637 million in 2021. In addition, the new plant construction in Tamsui, Taiwan would be completed by the end of 2021 and is expected to officially commence production in the first quarter of 2022. With full introduction of smart production line, the new plant is expected to contribute to 2.5 billion in gross revenue, largely increasing overall revenue and profit.
Looking into the future, the company plans to strengthen its technology capacity by focusing on forward-looking technological applications, such as internet communications, car power supply, aerospace power, advanced and medical power supply. In addition, AcBel continues to take root in new applications, including clean energy, solar plants, medical equipment and car power supply units related to electric vehicles, so as to realize its goals of fulfilling sustainable development and becoming the new leader for smart and green energy innovation in the power supply industry.
R&D and Innovation
R&D and capability of innovation indicate the driver for a company to grow and approach sustainability. On the base of this principle, AcBel develops its roadmap for R&D, patent application, and knowledge development map as a strategic plan from its vision and commitment.
The blooming progress and development in computer technology, Internet communication, consumer electronics, automobiles, medical technology, national defense and aerospace has overall driven the need for power supply products. AcBel utilizes its 40 years’ experiences in R&D to make modularized power supply products in accordance with market requirements. In compliance with international certification standard and regulations, AcBel also strives to optimize energy consumption, compactness and density and increase the efficiency of its power supply products.
AcBel has actively engaged in energy aggregation service field, continuing to install solar plants to provide green power with the deployment of power storage equipment and smart grids. We use smart meter as the development core and integrate Automated Metering Infrastructure (AMI), including Meter Data Management System (MDMS), with the introduction of energy management and demand response management technology for effective monitoring of power consumption.
Besides, in react to international trend of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and the concrete commitment of fulfilling environmental sustainability, many corporations have planned ahead for green power procurement to maintain their competitiveness worldwide. By supporting the government's policy of energy transformation and increasing the percentage of green power consumption, AcBel joined the trading platform of renewable energy certificates to vitalize green energy market and apply energy more effectively for boosting production and reducing GHG emissions so as to speed up the process of approaching clean economy.
Solar Energy Generation
With sunlight penetrating through solar module and being converted into Direct Current (DC), and then using inverter (ie.,transformer) to convert it into Alternationg Current (AC), which is integrated into the power grid, it can be directly supplied to the load and sold to increase the utilization rate of renewable energy. Our solar power plants have been engaged in the construction for a total of about 100MW (millon watts). We have also set up laboratories in Singapore to develop high-wattage solar bidirectional inverters and intelligent monitoring platforms for solar energy fields. It is expected to expand to 500MW in the next three years to integrate with the company's smart meter and power grid to build a total power technology solution.
AcBel has quickly responded to the market and service requirement from customers for new product, which raises the complexity of intellectual property management, and therefore has set up Legal and Intellectual Property Division as the dedicated department to be in charge of patent application, intellectual property right management and legal related matters and map out patent strategy, with the aims of avoiding any breach of intellectual property right and any risk for hampering future product and services as well as conflicts with existing and potential competitors. In order to snatch the advance opportunity in technology development or innovative service, AcBel allocates proportional amount of R&D investment and incentive bonus every year to encourage R&D team for strengthening its R&D capacity and keeping the competitive edge in the market.
