Large Scale Battery Energy Storage Safety: Trends & Standards

As battery energy storage technologies assume a bigger role in the global transition to renewable energy, the importance of developing and operating a safe system is paramount. In this pv magazine Webinar together with our initiative partner Clean Energy Associates (CEA), we will look at current safety trends in battery energy storage system design and installation, along with a review of relevant safety standards in the U.S.

Speakers Chris and Aaroh will discuss some of the most pressing safety concerns for new storage installations in the U.S., adding some global cases for additional context. The inherent systems risks of battery design and technology, as well as potential electrical concerns, will also be discussed.

Yet, just as there are multiple aspects of a system that can pose safety concerns, practices and technologies used to mitigate these concerns are evolving just as quickly as the batteries themselves. The speakers will also be touching on trends in the safety of system design, integration, and installation, before looking at existing safety standards in the United States.

Join this pv magazine Webinar to find out more about the advancements being made every day in battery storage system safety and how this is applied to every level of project development.
