Robust advanced lead battery storage for tactical microgrids
Funding: U.S. Department of Defense
Duration: January 2021 – May 2023
Project partners: Consortium for Battery Innovation, Paragon Solutions, Inc.
This project aimed to develop transportable and robust lead battery energy storage systems that can be integrated into tactical microgrids and demonstrated at the Contingency Basing Integration Training Evaluation Center (CBITEC) at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. This solution aimed to overcome issues with host nation power grids by designing an energy storage system that accepts host nation power, stores it, and then provides it in a form that is compatible with U.S. Army equipment.
