NIPV, Connectr

In 2021 and 2022, Netherlands Institute for Public Safety (NIPV) hosted two digital editions of the EU
Energy Storage Systems Safety Conference. In 2023, NIPV organizes a two-day physical edition of
this event at their location in Arnhem. The first day will be science and research based presentations
about the newest research and state of the art knowledge regarding the safety of Energy Storage
Systems (ESS). The second day aims to learn from Dutch field experiences: site-visits combined with
several lectures at different locations in the Eastern part of The Netherlands. Examples are the
regional fire brigade of Gelderland-Midden and ElaadNL. Attendants will travel this day with busses
from and to the different event-locations.

For whom?

The main audience for the conference is professionals working in the field of the safety of ESS and
related research. Professionals could for example be the staff from fire brigade concerned with the
incident response, but also with risk mitigation, prevention or policy advisors. They could also be
employees from regional/national utility compagnies, as well as officials in municipalities concerned
with the licensing of ESS. Last but not least, industry is welcome to join this conference.


The NIPV conference office will organize the event. All contributions will be in English. Keep an eye on our website for updates. Hotels are located nearby the NIPVs location. Information about the hotels location will be published later on our website.
More information how to (pre)register will follow in the first quarter of 2023.
