Ensuring the Safety of BESS Systems

Time: 15:50 - 16:30

Theatre: Room Two


Preventing explosions and disasters with battery energy storage systems is a hugely important issue, with the majority of operational installations still using lithium-ion. In this session, we look at improving fire and explosion safety through products and innovative technology solutions.

  • What are the best solutions for preventing explosions and thermal runaway with BESS systems?
  • Do you know the critical variables when sizing explosion vent panels?
  • Investing in proper surge protection and grounding solutions to help maintain the healthy operation of your storage system, minimizing expensive maintenance and repair work
  • Using battery analytics software to monitor assets and ensure reliability
