"Safety, Risk, and Compliance Considerations for Li-Ion Batteries in Grid Energy Storage Applications"

Thursday, May 11, 2023, 8:15 a.m.

Advanced energy storage technologies are becoming a vital part of the modern, reliable power system, and the success of rechargeable batteries has resulted in a marked increase in deploying lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries in grid energy storage systems. With increasing investment in grid-scale energy storage research and development, particularly for Li-ion batteries, the need is urgent to understand and address issues related to hazards and risks associated with these batteries. This presentation will provide an overview of a typical grid-scale battery storage system, the types of hazards associated with Li-ion battery systems, and an approach for performing safety and risk analysis of these systems, as well as related industry standards, regulations, and emergency response plans.
