Lead Batteries: Essential to the Mix
U.S. lead battery manufacturers and recyclers use National Battery Day (NBD) to specifically highlight the benefits of lead batteries. As the world moves toward electrification, the demand for all battery types is growing exponentially. Safe, reliable lead batteries are a trusted cornerstone in the mix of energy storage chemistries needed now – and for the multitude of applications ahead.
Why celebrate NBD on February 18? There’s an “electrifying” reason. It’s the anniversary of Alessandro Volta’s birth in 1745. The Italian physicist and chemist invented the electric battery, which is playing a prominent role in electrifying our world and accelerating decarbonization efforts.
Lead Battery Applications Keep Growing
Modern lead batteries are the result of millions of dollars of research and innovation by the lead battery industry. Today’s lead-based energy storage technology serves a diverse array of applications. That includes providing over 60% of the world’s rechargeable energy storage needs for:
