Society is electrifying quickly. As a result, the number of Energy Storage Systems (ESS), most of them equipped with lithium-ion batteries, is increasing rapidly. This development goes so fast, that (safety) regulations are often lagging behind and first responders are more and more confronted with incidents concerning ESS. In this online conference, the safety concerns of ESS are addressed, safety tests are discussed and lessons learned from recent incidents are brought to attention.
The target audience of this online conference are employees of fire brigades and related organizations. Whether you are concerned with risk mitigation measurements, involved in responding to incidents or are a policy advisor: this conference will be of interest for you. This conference is useful for officials in municipalities or provinces concerned with the licensing of ESS, as well as representatives from industry.
Program: the latest developments, results and insights
Nils Rosmuller, Professor of Energy and Transportation Safety at the Netherlands Institute for Safety, is the host of this meeting. In various brief keynote talks, speakers from Europe and the United States share their experiences and insights about the safety of ESS. Laws and regulations, examples, safety tests and lessons learned are all part of the four hour conference. Of course, it is also possible to ask the speakers questions via the chat.
