New All-Weather EV Battery Charges in Six Minutes

Chinese company Greater Bay Technology has unveiled a new solution that is designed to take the experience of using electric vehicles to the next level by providing fast charging and stable battery operation in all weather. The breakthrough technology could give a new impetus to the automotive industry by addressing the most crucial issues for electric vehicle manufacturers and EV owners.

Electric cars are closely associated with comfort, sustainability, and innovation, but battery limitations have been among the most challenging aspects of their operation for years. When ambient temperatures drop to 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit) and below, EV battery charging efficiency drops significantly, so car owners do not have the opportunity to rely on a power reserve. To improve battery efficiency at extreme temperatures, automakers install heat pumps that maintain the temperature range required for the battery to work properly. However, the imperfection of this solution is obvious, and manufacturers have continued to look for other ways.

Greater Bay Technology has developed a new battery for electric cars with a range of 621 miles (1,000 kilometers) that does not depend on the temperature outside the vehicle. The battery is called the Phoenix cell, and it is fully charged in just six minutes, about the time it takes to fill up a car with gasoline.

The Phoenix cell uses superconducting materials and thermal management technology to heat the battery from -20℃ (-4℉) to 25℃ (77℉) in just five minutes. Thus, Greater Bay Technology has provided a solution to two problems of electric cars at once: the battery operates within the normal operating temperature range at all times so that driving range is not reduced at low temperatures, and it takes literally six minutes to fully charge the car, approximately as at a regular gas station.

The company behind the Phoenix cell:

Greater Bay Technology was founded in 2020 by two seasoned automotive industry professionals Huang Xiangdong and Pei Feng. With many years of experience working for industry leaders, Huang aims to develop and implement technology that will encourage the mass adoption of electric cars and equalize EVs with gasoline cars in terms of convenience, practicality, and safety. Greater Bay Technology’s developments have already been successfully applied to GAC’s electric vehicles, and in 2024 the innovative batteries will be used on EVs of other manufacturers.

The Lady Behind The Curtain, an interview with Isabel Jimenez

Chairwoman MVD Invest Group S.A. and Sr. Advisory Consultant at The Private Office of H.E. Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Duaij bin Khalifa al Khalifa

A low-key figure, Ms. Isabel Jiménez prefers to stay largely out of the spotlight, although she has received media attention and accolades over recent years thanks to her involvement in several trade and inve stment deals and philanthropic activities.

MoralModa: It’s not easy being “low-key” in today’s world…
Isabel Jiménez: This is because we live in a society that values overconfidence and exuberance. Maintaining a low profile does not give others a sense of threat, and it can also prove very useful in business. There is nothing wrong with being a private person.

M.M.: How do you split your time between Panama City, Barcelona, and Monaco?
I. J.: I’ve been in Monaco now for almost two years. Before that, I lived practically everywhere — I was in Spain for school, Geneva for university, back home to Barcelona for a bit, then went to France and Panama City, where I have been living for 12 years. I am really a global citizen and I love it.
As with many of us, COVID-19 reminded me of what truly matters in life. In March of last year, I escaped to Monaco to be closer to my parents and sister, who live in Madrid. So now I spend summers in Monaco and split my time in the winter between Panama and the Caribbean. My life does not revolve around work, and I have the luxury of being able to take care of my business from wherever I am in the world.

M.M.: You are an entrepreneur who has had a very successful career. How did you achieve this?
I. J.: I founded my first company when I was 28, which was a translation agency specializing in finance and legal affairs.
Thanks to all I did and learnt at SLS International, I was later able to join and invest in Milengo, a multilingual services provider with offices in 16 countries, which became one of the world’s top 100 language service providers. In parallel with this, I started investing in residential real estate in South America and am working on a few trade deals all over the world, and I am involved in a few projects now.
I have always had a very enterprising spirit, and I love learning. When you do what you love and you love what you do, it does not feel like work. And I have always surrounded myself with a great team and those whom I trust, and asked for advice or guidance when necessary.

M.M. How did you get involved with the Private Office of H.E. Sheikh Abdulaziz Bin Duaij Bin Khalifa Al Khalifa?
I. J.: I represent the Pacific Rim Business Council (PRBC) in Europe, and the Pacific Rim Chamber of Commerce for the MENA region, which has led me to many key interactions. Last year, the Private Office got in touch with me to explore synergies between our organizations and H.E. told me about the upcoming Royal Investment Summit, taking place in Dubai from January 22-24, 2022.
We realized that we share many values and principles, and I was offered the opportunity to collaborate as a Senior Advisory Consultant. It is a real pleasure and great honor to work on the upcoming Summit, and to accelerate the organization’s presence in the GCC countries, especially in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the UAE.

M.M.: You are often seen attending art events, supporting many different kinds of artists and musicians, organizing philanthropic events.
I. J.: If I hadn’t conducted business, I would be an artist, a singer, or a dancer… a sort of Lady Gaga (smile). My love for art and music has been a huge part of my life. I have a very creative side, which is quite fulfilling and meaningful to me. And I love being surrounded by artists, watching the world through their eyes. When I am creative, I feel I am living more fully than I have during the rest of my life.
Last year, during lockdown, I supported two Dutch musicians to promote a classical music CD that was distributed for free to care homes and hospitals. Now I am collaborating with a Japanese digital finger painter, Yusuke Akamatsu to spread his message and make his great artwork well-known all over the world. Yusuke is a very talented and humble artist and a very inspiring human being. Their Excellencies Sheikh Abdulaziz and Sheikha Emanuela are great supporters of arts and culture, and they have kindly allowed Mr. Akamatsu to exhibit his unparalleled artwork during the upcoming Royal Investment Summit, for which I am extremely grateful.

M.M.: Your clear passion and contagious enthusiasm are inspiring as well. What other similar projects have you planned for 2022?
I. J.: In 2022 I am quite excited about collaborating with the Future For Humanity Foundation (FFH). FFH is hosting a series of events internationally which will bring together the best of entertainment, music, media, sports, industry and impact with a focus on solving the world’s greatest challenges and the UN’s Global Goals. Together with Melinda Woolf, the Foundation’s visionary and Founder, and an equally passionate team, we are going to bring together our network of celebrities, global leaders, ambassadors, top scientists, award winning recording artists and the brightest minds of our time with the goal of not just raising awareness, but also create the action as impact solutions.
Our group is planning event in several cities and countries, including New York, California, Monaco, Bahrain, London, Ras al-Khaimah, etc. We are updating the FFH website at with the latest news and event schedule.
You are most welcome to join the movement, I’ll send you an invitation, and my sincere thank you for this wonderful opportunity to connect with your eco-luxury readers!
