    Missouri is Studying the Use of Lead-Acid Batteries at EV Charging Stations

    Plans to introduce battery-supported EV charging stations have moved a step closer thanks to funding through a competitive grant awarded by the State of Missouri, made possible by funds from the U.S. Department of Energy State Energy Program. The grant will fund a detailed plan for the set-up and construction of EV charging stations with advanced lead energy storage at the selected demonstration sites to help manage electricity demand fluctuations and store electricity when it is less costly.

    1. This project aims to demonstrate how advanced lead battery energy storage, linked to EV charging stations, can help manage electricity demand fluctuations and store electricity when it is less costly, before supplying it at a time when electric car drivers need to charge their vehicles.
    2. We are delighted to support this project through our innovative industry partnerships program, which aims to increase the awareness of, and experience with, marketable energy storage technologies that have the potential to contribute to meeting the state's energy needs and economic development goals now and into the future.
