Green Sustainable Design

Products and Services

AcBel expands the green energy industry and the deployment of automotive electronics/ electric vehicle power supply, develop three major fields: power supply, green energy, and electric vehicle power supply, and create a new business model to drive the development of AcBel in the next 40 years and realize our corporate vision - "We Power the World with Sustainable/Renewable Energy and High Efficiency Power Supply."

AcBel achieved a total revenue of NTD 25.321 billion in the year of 2022, with a net profit after tax of NTD 636 million, representing an increase of 15.59% and 5.65% respectively compared to the previous year. The production volume of power supply products in 2022 was approximately 79,430 thousand units, which represents a slight increase of approximately 0.67% compared to the previous year. The shipment quantity of SINO products in 2022 was approximately 225,880 thousand pieces, which represents a decrease of 33.6% compared to the previous year. The majority of these shipments were in the form of metal stamped components, and the primary customer base for these two product categories was computer and peripheral equipment customers.

The year of 2022 was also the first year when AcBel focused on green electricity sales and expanded its efforts in the areas of power generation, energy storage, green electricity sales, and smart energy management systems(EMS). The company aimed to drive economic development through green energy and promote sustainable growth. As of now, the cumulative solar power generation capacity from solar power plants of AcBel has reached 149.49 MW. The green electricity generated amounts to 186.86 million kWh, resulting in a reduction of 96,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. This reduction is equivalent to the carbon sequestration capacity of 248 Daan Forest Parks (based on an estimate by the Council of Agriculture, which suggests that a forest absorbs 15 metric tons of carbon dioxide per hectare per year). Additionally, the total amount of green electricity supplied to various industries and property management is 6.22 million kWh, catering to the renewable energy needs of these businesses.

In the field of automotive electronics, AcBel primarily supplies electric control-related products, including inverters and onboard chargers. In 2022, AcBel collaborated with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) to integrate industry resources and enter the international automotive market. The company underwent a transformation from being a "vehicle component manufacturer" to an "electric vehicle system provider," aiming to upgrade its capabilities. Furthermore, AcBel expanded its market presence in Asia by strategically expanding its operations in the region. Starting from Q4 2022, AcBel began shipping products to customers in the USA and in 2023, it successfully entered into volume production with Japanese customers. AcBel aims to achieve a target where revenue from automotive electronics accounts for 8% to 10% of its overall revenue within the next three years.

AcBel's revenue in 2022 hit a record high, with an annual increase of 15.59%. If analyzed by product category, the revenue of the power supply business increased by 21% year-on-year, which was higher than the previous average growth rate, mainly due to the strong global demand in the first half of the year. Although consumer demand slowed down in the second half of the year, the demand for servers and data centers continued, resulting in a change in the proportion of annual product sales revenue.

R&D and Innovation

Research and innovation are crucial strategies for enhancing competitiveness and serving as the core foundation for sustained business development. In response to the global decarbonization trend and the flourishing development of technologies such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), low orbit satellite communications, smart manufacturing, smart cities, and electric vehicles, AcBel is capitalizing on mature power core technologies to seize potential business opportunities and transform towards low-carbon technologies. By doing so, AcBel aims to contribute to global net-zero emissions.

With our company's market positioning strategy, we embark on a path of enhancing customer satisfaction and improving product profitability. Under the goal of "improving customer satisfaction and increasing product profitability," we have formulated a blueprint for research and innovation strategy. This blueprint creates a positive and continuous momentum, allowing us to attract new strategic customers, strengthen our research and development resources and technical capabilities, and provide environmentally friendly and market-competitive low-carbon products and services. By doing so, we aim to expand our revenue and increase profitability for the company.

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.

R&D Patents

AcBel adopts a patent management policy focused on "protecting research and development achievements and strengthening competitive advantages." As the company annually invests resources and funds in research and innovation, it is essential to ensure legal protection of its technologies in the market, preventing easy imitation or infringement by competitors. Intellectual property strategy plays a critical role in achieving this goal.

The company has established a dedicated unit called the "Intellectual Property Division" to create a patent map based on the company's future product layout. This division analyzes industry patent application information and develops a technology matrix chart to identify any potential legal infringements and serve as internal references for research and development. It also plays a crucial role in evaluating key technology patents in the future to avoid infringing on others' patent rights, which could lead to losses for the company. Additionally, this approach helps maintain a competitive advantage in the market and enhances the evaluation of intangible assets, thereby increasing the asset value of the company.

The investment of the company in R&D expenses accounts for over 6% of its total revenue each year. In 2022, the R&D and design team at the Taiwan HQ comprised approximately 407 individuals, and 60% of the patents obtained that year were invention patents. The direction of patent layout includes not only the company's core products such as servers and consumer power supplies but also extends to areas such as solar energy, green energy, electric vehicles, and charging stations. This demonstrates the comprehensive and robust intellectual property layout of the company, showcasing its growth potential.
