Missouri S&T Solar Microgrids

Missouri University of Science and Technology’s Lead Battery Solar Microgrids

The Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) has joined other members of the Missouri S&T Microgrid Industrial Consortium to provide resources for the construction of an advanced lead battery microgrid at the Missouri S&T EcoVillage.

Two on-campus high-tech homes will act as ”living laboratories” for a three-year study on renewable energy sources – and storage – for communities of the future.

There's a lot of room for growth in ... lead battery chemistry ... it's something that would really make it even more competitive for things like stationary storage.
