In 2021, the repeated COVID-19 outbreaks and other factors brought more uncertainty to the recovering global economy. Furthermore, the crazy rise of fuel prices and the increasingly fierce competition in electricity market brought unprecedented pressure to the sustainable development of energy enterprises.
In the face of challenges, GCL-ET has created the outstanding achievement of high compound growth of net profit attributable to the parent company for four consecutive years with consistent courage and wisdom. It has also grasped the historical opportunity given by the “double carbon” era and started a new era of transition to mobile energy. In 2021, the market value of the company reached RMB28.5 billion, an increase of 2.5 times compared with the beginning of the year!
Looking back on GCL-ET’s struggle course in 2021, there are soul-stirring fights and also exciting races.

Key word: Breaking ice
Breaking ice is not only an indomitable persistence, but also the transformation from cocoon to butterfly. Entering the field of mobile energy is GCL’s unswerving dream. Unremitting persistence finally ushered in a gorgeous turn. In March, 2021, GCL-ET grandly released the strategic transformation plan of mobile energy in Beijing, and at the same time jointly released the first carbon neutral fund of RMB ten billion with CICC Capital, which opened the curtain of the company’s all-out push into mobile energy with the battery-swap business as the breakthrough point. Since then, the company has focused on the key battery swap scenarios and made great progress in market expansion, product R&D, platform building, team building and brand building. In just half a year, the first batch of battery swap stations for passenger cars and commercial vehicles were put into operation, making a major breakthrough.
Keyword: Zero carbon
Zero carbon is the weathervane of the times and the yearning of the earth; it is the priority of the country and the expectation of the people. In the past 30 years, GCL-ET, adhering to the unchanging original intention of green development, has been striding forward all the way to become a leading domestic clean energy producer. In the grand era of “double-carbon”, GCL-ET closely focuses on the strategic positioning of “becoming the leading mobile energy technology service provider in China”, promotes the link and interaction between traditional business and transformation business, and makes a series of breakthroughs in domestic new energy and clean energy development, comprehensive energy service expansion, overseas development and other fields, fully demonstrating the vigorous pace of “zero-carbon pioneer”.

In 2021, GCL-ET’s successful transformation aroused great concern and strong response from the capital market. The 2.5-fold increase in market value is not irrational speculation, but confirmation by investors of the company after re-recognition and re-evaluation of the company based on the sustained and high compound growth of performance, high-quality assets, excellent fundamentals and broad development prospects of the company in recent years.
Key word: Change
Change is an important magic weapon for private enterprises to take advantage of “short cycle and quick result” to cope with competition, especially in the aspects of mechanism system innovation and talent system optimization. In 2021, the company adjusted its organizational undertaking strategy, set up a path with defined system, innovated incentives to help business, clarified responsibility to improve efficiency, and continuously injected new impetus and vitality into enterprise development.
