2022 Request for Proposals

Advanced lead battery research

In a new request for proposals targeting growing markets such as electric vehicles, energy storage systems and motive power applications, CBI’s new RFP has identified key areas for research opportunities for advanced lead batteries.

The innovation potential for the technology is significant and the cutting-edge, pre-competitive research driven by CBI's Technical Program aims to advance the performance of the technology to meet global decarbonization and electrification targets.

Research objectives

Enhancing lead battery performance

Calling on the industry to submit research proposals to enhance batteries in critical ways such as cycle life, service life, charge efficiency and operational cost, the RFP will guide CBI’s new Technical Program and next round of funded projects.

With growth expected across all lead battery applications – 60% of the global rechargeable battery market is represented by lead batteries – the potential for innovation in the technology remains a significant drive for CBI and its research partnerships worldwide with members, governments and national laboratories.
