On the other side of the temperature spectrum, reduced cold-weather capacity is recognized as a major drawback for standard lead-acid battery
The lead-acid battery
recycling structure has been proven to be efficient and highly successful, and no other battery chemistry comes near the recycling rate of lead-acid batteries," Hart says.
The government has attempted to target importers, prosecuting individual lead-acid battery
importers and impounding more than 100 container loads of lead-acid battery
waste in various ports.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global lead-acid battery
market for ESS to grow at a CAGR of 5% during 2014-2019.
In addition, McIver says the typical lifespan for a lead-acid battery
has grown from three to five years to six to eight, hampering demand for the replacements that make up most of the market.
The Advanced Lead-Acid Battery
Consortium, a group of battery manufacturers, users, and suppliers organized by the International Lead Zinc Research Organization (ILZRO), Research Triangle Park, NC, is helping to develop lead-acid battery
technologies that bring performance levels up to those needed for a viable EV.
