Lead Carbon Batteries Chosen for Tibetan Power Plant

Lead Carbon Batteries Chosen for Tibetan Power Plant

Advances in technology, cost benefits and recycling led energy storage company China Shoto Energy Storage to forgo lithium ion batteries and instead install a 20MWh lead carbon battery in Tibet.

The system will ensure the quality of energy supply from intermittent solar generation to the grid by providing frequency and voltage services.
