EcoHouse in MUST EcoVillage

Missouri University of Science and Technology (MUST) has installed two new advanced lead battery microgrid systems at its campus EcoVillage, to test advancements in lead battery energy storage for use as a renewable resource in communities of the future.

The microgrids will supply two student-occupied homes in the EcoVillage— a ‘living laboratory’ of homes designed and created by Must students who competed in the US Department of Energy’s biennial Solar Decathlon—with stored electricity from the systems, which run off charging algorithms from a 24-hour, cloud-based control system.

EU warned on picking ‘winners’ for new battery research cash

EU leaders have been warned against ignoring lead-acid technology when selecting battery “winners” and bestowing alternative chemistries with millions of euros in fresh funding for advanced battery research.

The warning from the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) came as the European Commission revealed plans to launch a EUR1bn ($1.1bn) “Future Emerging Technologies Flagship initiative”— to support long-term research in advanced battery technologies for a 10-year period from 2025.

ALABC-Exide launch energy storage project

The Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) and Exide Spain are launching a two-year study into the use of carbon nano materials in the positive active mass.

The objective of the new project “is to investigate potential significant benefits, such as improved energy efficiency and cycle life for lead batteries in energy storage applications, through the use of nano-carbon on the positive plate”, the ALABC said.
