Lead batteries provide the backup power to keep us connected in an increasingly mobile society. They safeguard the vital telecommunications...
In hospitals worldwide, lead batteries save lives by providing emergency power for lifesaving equipment during temporary power outages.
And in times of crisis, lead batteries provide essential energy and critical backup power for 911 call centers and emergency response teams. This includes energy for emergency lighting, and powering helicopters and other lifesaving vehicles. Lead batteries have delivered safe, reliable, mission-critical energy backup in these applications for decades.
In addition, the U.S. military relies on lead batteries to help keep our troops safe by powering vehicles used for bomb detection and disposal.
The range of scale, safety, reliability and application adaptability of lead battery energy storage systems means that they are well-suited to safeguard the critical communications, data and healthcare infrastructure that so many people depend on during emergency situations.
Lead batteries safeguard vital communications, power transportation and logistical networks that fuel our economy, and support the backup power systems that protect life, investments and data in an emergency. The lead battery powers essential instruments for the cars and trucks that keep our lives moving forward.
Lead battery energy storage systems manage the variability of electric grids to keep communication and data networks consistently accessible. Lead batteries ensure that when the power goes out, the Internet stays on.
Lead batteries are in every factory. They’re in every warehouse. They’re running equipment all day long. Watch this short video and hear from Jeff Elder, former president of Battery Council International.
The lead acid battery ... is legendary. We can recycle 95+ percent of [these] batteries all across the world. It's a very safe chemistry, ... [and] we understand how to use it very, very well.
