International Zinc Association Launches Zinc Battery Initiative25.2.2021 21:48:00 EET | Press release
The International Zinc Association (IZA) is excited to announce the launch of its newest program, the Zinc Battery Initiative. Recent extreme weather events, amplified by climate change, have once again focused attention on the future role of fossil fuels and the capacity and resilience of energy grids worldwide. One of the most impactful ways of addressing this is through cost-effective energy storage. As renewables become an ever-greater part of the electrical grid, energy storage can help address solar and wind power's intermittency. It can also help respond to large fluctuations in demand by capturing and storing excess energy during low demand and bringing it online during peak times. Energy storage also helps provide resilience by serving as a backup energy supply when generation is interrupted. It will also play a pivotal role in electrifying transport, and other applications where power is needed, but tethered connections to the grid are not practical. Addressing climate change
