Masterclass Series with India Energy Storage Alliance: Battery Fires in Stationary Grid ESS and EVs
Throughout 2022, UL Standards & Engagement and the India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) will hold a joint masterclass webinar series on safety and standards for energy storage systems (ESS). The series will address current issues and trends in the energy storage industry, while also providing information on the standards intended to address these issues.
This webinar series is geared for stakeholders in industries related to energy storage systems and is intended to help advance research opportunities. Topics in the series were identified as priority areas for participants from India.
In this final session, Dr. Judy Jeevarajan, vice president and executive director of the Electrochemical Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at UL Research Institutes, and Alex Schraiber, research manager of fire research and development at UL Solutions, will discuss the dynamic global transition from lead-acid to lithium-ion batteries, as well as mitigation plans for the challenges presented by this technology. With the increased demand for electric vehicles and stationary energy, energy storage systems are becoming a necessity. As the world economy scales up production and usage of energy storage systems, it is critical to establish, understand, and follow standards and safety precautions to help avoid future predicaments.
