For the first time a lead carbon battery for storing power generated from solar panels is developed by Chinese scientists. The claim is that with such devices at disposal the electricity supply is stable for use.

The project of energy storage system with batteries was tested in Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics in northern China’s Liaoning Province.

To lighten up the campus there are around 46 streetlights and landscape lights operating at the institution. Each lamppost has an attached battery under it which is connected to the solar panels of the lamp posts.

It was developed by a team of researchers led by Professor Li Xianfeng and Professor Zhang Huamin who claimed that a fully-charged battery can power a streetlight for more than 23 hours.

According to scientists the power generated by renewable energy sources was not continuous and stable, making it difficult to regulate.

The battery can ensure a stable output of electricity. Once applied, it can help push the use of clean energy from an auxiliary to a dominant power generating source, they added further.

On the pilot project the battery has shown a 100 per cent recharge rate and safety performance.

The research was launched under a contract signed between the institute and the Baoding Fengfan Co., Ltd. under the China Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Group in 2015.

For the next step, the two sides will start to develop a kilowatt-level and a megawatt-level lead-carbon battery energy storage system for renewable energy projects as its first industrial applications.
