There are significant opportunities for lead battery technology in current and future markets. However, in order to take advantage or these opportunities, the lead battery technology must continue to adapt, improve and innovate. This presentation will discuss the ground-breaking work of the Consortium for Battery Innovation – the only global lead battery research consortium. Key research results will be presented from CBI’s ongoing Technical Program – driven by the CBI Technical Roadmap. Utility and renewable energy storage applications offer huge opportunities for all battery technologies – new projects related to lead battery use in energy storage applications will also be discussed.
