Industry Experts Share Timely Insights on U.S. Energy Storage Related to EV Platforms
To help policy makers stay current, Battery Council International has released the second in its multi-part, on-demand briefing series on how to meet U.S. energy storage needs with domestic resources. Each briefing is a free, 20-minute, pre-recorded session listeners can access when convenient.
The series shares front-line insights from top battery industry and supply chain experts who discuss current issues and opportunities facing energy storage and manufacturing today: supply chains, infrastructure, battery innovation, electrification and the need for new energy sources.
On-Demand Briefing #2: What You’ll Learn
The electrification of the global car parc is accelerating and so is the demand for batteries. Nearly all existing electric vehicle (EV) platforms depend on an auxiliary 12V low-wattage lead battery to power a growing list of electric features and to back up safety systems. We will discuss what’s driving the U.S. auto industry to make this transition, how onboard battery systems can meet peak power requirements (an increase of 50% in the past decade), and how the U.S. can meet its energy storage needs domestically.
View this on-demand Q&A on the essential role of lead batteries to:
- Advance EV technology and support decarbonization
- Bridge the gap between EVs and internal combustion engines (ICE)
- Provide a sustainable, domestic battery solution with a nearly 100% recycling rate
