MANY JOBS CAN BE PERFORMED NOW--BY THE IMPROVED LEAD ACID BATTERY

It is noted that the lead acid battery industry has a major opportunity to increase the overall size of the market for motive power products. By way of the following: a minimum 50% improvement in lead acid cell energy density; and penetration of the 1 to 3 to payload commercial vehicle market sector. The extent to which the commercial vehicle switches to electric propulsion will depend upon the degree of government support for electic vehicle (EV). The political advantages of commercial EV are the reduced environmental pollution, and the more effective use of energy resources. The results of research in battery research and development could be used in fork lift, mining locomotive and leisure markets. There could be a 25% expansion in the battery fork lift truck market.
