The demand for renewable energy storage is increasing rapidly. However, delivering the full benefits of sustainable energy generation requires support from sustainable energy storage solutions. The lead battery industry is ideally positioned to help meet renewable energy storage demand domestically and reduce dependence on critical materials from foreign countries.
Highly sustainable, lead batteries have a robust domestic infrastructure that ensures consistent lead battery fulfillment from an industry poised for scalability.
Lead batteries defy the vulnerabilities in some of our nation’s supply chains. 86% of North American lead battery demand is met by North American recyclers. That’s good news for meeting changing domestic-sourcing mandates to “Buy American.”
Recently, the Department of Defense began stepping up efforts to reduce our country’s dependence on imported critical materials. The specific wording is to “strengthen battery critical materials supply chains.” For the battery industry overall, that means reducing the amount of materials needed for battery production and recycling spent-battery materials.
Lead batteries are a step ahead. Their domestic supply chain is ensuring essential backup power remains available for:
The lead battery industry, with its strong domestic supply chain, is ideally positioned to rapidly deliver on the President-elect’s...
