Batteries/Lead-acid/Horzin 050805

 During the exciting, but technologically unchallenged 1990ís, Electrosource developed the Horizon battery which replaced the lead plates with fiberglass coated lead, providing some increase in energy density. Last year the bankrupt company was bought by Eagle Picher which has set up a plant in China.  Is there a future for this battery configuration?
