A key component to the success of wind and solar energy technologies is energy storage. However, batteries are potentially hazardous if not managed and disposed of properly.

Depending on the construction of the battery, several hazardous materials may be found as components that could cause adverse environmental impacts if they escape containment of the battery housing, including:

  • acid
  • lead
  • nickel
  • lithium
  • cadmium
  • alkaline
  • mercury
  • nickel metal hydride

These battery systems need to be monitored closely and require maintenance. If neglected they can reach their end-of-life much sooner than anticipated.
