Advanced lead batteries
More than 90 battery companies worldwide, who are members of the Consortium, are supporting research focused on delivering significant advancements in rechargeable energy storage. CBI is also partnering with universities and dedicated research organisations to develop enhanced lead batteries with improved performance and lifetimes.
CBI members, in collaboration with some of the world’s leading research institutes, are currently working on a range of innovative research projects.Learn more
In a ground-breaking new project to help develop the next generation of advanced lead batteries, more than a dozen companies from the lead battery industry are working with U.S Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory.
The collaborative research project at the world-leading Argonne Advanced Photon Source in Chicago will use the facility’s ultra-bright, high-energy X-ray beams to investigate the complex interactions taking place in lead batteries in real time.
“This new project, with Argonne’s scientists, will help make the leap to the next generation of advanced lead batteries”
The Consortium for Battery Innovation has published a series of studies in scientific journals setting out research into addition of carbon in lead batteries, the use of lead batteries in utility energy storage, and life cycle assessment studies for the lead industry. The journals are published here.
