Wei said he was very excited about entering the new, very important renewable energy sector.

The strategic partnership between Intretech Hungary and KBVIP will aim to help resolve the current shortages of energy storage and EV super charging stations, and will help Hungary and Europe move towards a more sustainable and renewable future, he said.
