For decades, lead batteries have been relied on for data center and telecom backup power. The proven and sustainable technology of lead batteries with a relatively low up-front cost, recyclability, safety and well-understood maintenance requirements makes them a trusted solution.
Batteries are becoming even more essential to these critical industries as the demands on our electrical grids increase and as more power comes from solar and wind energy.
Renewable energy sources require storage of the energy when its abundant and discharging it when it’s needed to meet demand. Lead batteries can also help balance other kinds of variability on power grids, allowing for more cost-effective and efficient operations and stable power for data centers and telecom systems.
Lead batteries will be the primary stored power source for these systems. Based upon our insights, we believe lead AGM – or absorbed glass mat batteries – will be the battery of choice for the next 20-plus years.
