Understanding Energy Storage Safety: Insights from Expert Researchers

Date: October 29th, 2019 at 2pm ET / 11am PT

Duration: 1 hour

While interest and investment in the energy storage industry are building, the industry is still developing. Rapidly evolving technology and ongoing innovation are creating more and more opportunities for advancement – but safety standards are struggling to keep pace. Notable fires in Korea and Arizona have key leaders seeking more stringent safety standards. As the industry grows, safety and security measures must evolve as well.

Join IHI Energy Storage in a discussion with the University of Texas Fire Research Group (UTFRG) and DNV GL as they take an in-depth look at the state of safety standards in the energy storage industry and an evaluation of the path forward. The conversation will be driven by questions submitted by our audience upon registration.

IHI Energy Storage is dedicated to advancing the industry safety standards and is collaborating with expert industry groups like UTFRG and DNV GL to understand safety needs and leverage the knowledge when developing systems for customers. UTFRG is working to understand potential fire and explosion hazards posed by energy storage systems, evaluate safety measures and develop safety technologies that address the issues while DNV GL focuses on the evaluating system level risk-management. Together, this panel provides unique insight into safety issues at play in the energy storage industry.
