The lead–acid battery is one of the longest-serving battery types in the energy storage market. Characteristics such as being less expensive, having higher recyclability percentage than rival battery technology, and ability to cope with sudden thrust for higher power have been major factors driving their adoption across various application sectors. With the Governments’ policy support and less cost of power generation, accordingly, as shown by market reports, the demand for household energy storage systems is growing worldwide.
Commonly, AGM VRLA batteries have been used widely in South and South-East Asia and Africa homes for backup energy storage from solar systems. Although these batteries are maintenance-free, poor cycle-life is insufficient to meet user requirement. Similarly in Indian, battery markets for home application in urban, rural, and semi-urban areas must be categorized and customized according to their energy needs.
