DALLAS, December 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Alternet Systems, Inc. (USOTC: ALYI) shared more details today on the company's strategy to tap into the world's overall leading auto market and leading electric vehicle (EV) market. Earlier this week, Alternet announced that the company is in partnership discussions intended to open up China's leading Electric Vehicle market for Alternet's patented lithium energy solution. China has been the largest automobile market in the world since 2009 and Forbes reports China will be the number one auto market in the world again in 2017 with over 20 million units already sold as of October:
Car sales in China reached $470 billion in sales in 2015 and has continued to grow annually since.
20 Million Electric Bicycles Annually
Keeping in mind that two wheel vehicles, including bicycles, motorcycles and mopeds account for a much larger market in terms of units sold annually, Alternet's EV strategy includes two-wheel transportation. Since 2004, China has averaged 20 million electric bicycles sales annually. Income in developing economic nations is rising and along with it, the demand for motorcycles is also rising and expected to continue rising through 2020.
Look for coming news from Alternet about EV partnerships to include two wheel vehicles.
Alternet Patented Lithium Energy Solution
On July 21, 2017, Alternet Systems acquired Lithium IP Holdings in a transaction that included a management and business direction change. Randell Torno was named the new Alternet Systems Chairman and CEO. Edward Bollen, the President of Lithium IP Holdings, also joined the Altnernet Systems management team. On June 23, 2017, Lithium IP Holdings executed an agreement with Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. (NYSE : APD ) to exclusively license ten U.S. Patented lithium battery technologies with an option to acquire the ten U.S. Patents.
Alternet Lithium Energy Integration and Development Strategy
Alternet's business strategy today is to partner with prominent third parties producing products and services that require stable, safe, long duration power in high impact operating systems. Within such partnerships, Alternet and each partner will together develop an integrated solution that includes a power component based on Alternet's lithium technology. Alternet's lithium technology applicability in military solutions presents promising partnership development opportunities. At the same time, Alternet is also developing partnerships separate from the military industrial sector to include the Electric Vehicle (EV) and Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) partners. Several potential partners participated in Alternet's vetting process when identifying and selecting a technology to acquire as the foundation of the company's strategy to bring a stable, safe, long duration power solution to market for high impact operating systems. Partnership announcements are anticipated to be forthcoming soon.
