Today’s innovative lead batteries are key to a cleaner, greener future. They’re also the most environmentally sustainable battery...
Lead batteries provide superior cost-benefit value in comparison to other energy storage chemistries.
Lead batteries have been used worldwide for more than 100 years. They help power innovative and safe energy storage solutions, including large renewable energy storage facilities and an uninterruptable power supply (UPS) for vital telecommunications and data centers.
Advanced lead battery technology is also helping make micro- and mild hybrid-electric vehicles more affordable. Thanks to new 48V lead-carbon battery technologies, car manufacturers have a more affordable battery option that can reduce CO2 emissions by 15-20%.
The Energy Storage Grand Challenge report….reflects growing recognition from DOE and others that lead batteries are among important energy storage technologies that require investment to secure America’s global leadership on technological innovation and a green economy infrastructure.
