The Consortium for Battery Innovation has been at the Energy Storage Association (ESA)’s annual conference, held in Phoenix, Arizona on April 16-18 to showcase advanced lead batteries.
During the event, which is attended by attendees from across the energy storage industry, CBI launched a new Interactive Map showcasing more than 120 global energy storage projects supported by lead batteries.
The feature details how lead battery storage is supporting diverse utility and renewable energy projects around the world. From frequency regulation services for large-scale power grids, to supplying off-grid electricity for remote communities, advanced lead batteries are demonstrating their reliable, safe, sustainable and cost-effective attributes.
CBI’s collaboration with members and partners across the world aims to advance lead battery technology through research and innovation.
Energy storage has been identified as a vital focus for future research programs, as unprecedented growth in demand is expected as the world moves to cleaner sources of energy, combined with electrification of economies and societies.
CBI’s research programs aim to take lead battery technology into the next generation, to help meet the huge market growth in demand. This means demonstrating great performance, longer lifetime and full recyclability.
Advanced lead batteries play a vital role for today’s renewable energy storage and will continue to play a vital role in the future.
