More than 120 lead battery-powered energy storage projects worldwide have been highlighted in a new online map by the Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI).
The map, featured on the CBI’s web site, includes diverse case studies demonstrating successful lead battery energy storage installations from the US, to Asia and Europe.
CBI director Dr Alistair Davidson said: “We are seeing growing interest in lead battery energy storage for utility and renewables systems all over the world. The aim of this initiative is to highlight some of these installations and encourage companies to share other examples we can highlight demonstrating the variety of projects currently in place.”
“Our analysis suggests demand for battery energy storage will increase significantly in the next five years,” Davidson said. “This new tool will allow us to demonstrate that the latest lead battery technology is supporting a wide range of installations with reliable, safe, sustainable and cost-effective energy storage.”
The launch of the map comes as the CBI prepares to unveil a new technical roadmap setting a path for the future development of the lead battery industry at the Battery council International convention in New Orleans from 28 April.
