US: Lead batteries poised to support electric vehicle charging stations

0

Plans to introduce lead battery-supported electric vehicle (EV) charging stations have moved a step closer thanks to funding through a competitive grant awarded by the U.S. state of Missouri, made possible by funds from the U.S. Department of Energy State Energy Program.

The competitive grant award by the state’s Division of Energy will support a Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI) feasibility study that will investigate advanced lead battery energy storage deployed alongside EV charging points at Missouri gas stations.

The ground-breaking project could pave the way for a much wider roll-out of EV charging stations utilizing advanced lead battery technology.

CBI is now preparing to select the most appropriate gas station locations before conducting an in-depth feasibility analysis for at least two locations.
