Lead Acid Battery Market for ESS in the US 2015-2019

ESS comprise various technologies, such as pumped-hydro storage systems, flywheels, lead-acid batteries, and advanced batteries (Li-ion). Lead-acid batteries consist of plates of lead oxide or pure lead. These plates act as electrodes and diluted sulphuric acid acts as the electrolyte. Chemical reaction in these batteries produces a difference in voltage between terminals. A typical lead-acid battery contains pure lead, which acts as the negative electrode, and lead dioxide, which acts as the positive electrode. A combination of multiple electrodes is known as a cell. Two or more cells connected together form a battery. These batteries discharge when no current flows between the cells. This discharge follows a chemical reaction that converts both positive and negative electrodes to lead su......
