National Battery Day provides an opportunity to engage with policymakers on the essentiality of lead batteries and the innovative research to improve their performance for automotive and energy storage applications. Global energy demand is expected to increase by 30% between 2018 and 2040. This is the equivalent of adding another China and India to our planet. Renewable energy sources are expected to provide 40% of that power generation. To address these needs and in recognition of National Battery Day, a panel of leading science and business leaders will share updates on innovative lead battery research as well as public/private partnerships to meet the need for renewable energy and create efficient energy models to lower the planet’s carbon footprint and stabilize the grid.
