Default Stupid question

I'm totally new to these cars and Ford in general. I just picked up a 02 Taurus SES dohc.

While looking over the engine bay after giving it a good cleaning, what is the belt on the right side of the engine located next to the battery?

I've looked through the forum and only see threads regarding the serpentine belt.

Thanks!

I'm gonna guess that it's a cam driven water pump, but I could be wrong.
