Session 04: Energy Storage Systems: How to Mitigate Fire and Explosion Hazards 
Date & Time
Wednesday, April 17, 2024, 9:50 AM - 10:50 AM

Energy storage systems are everywhere and their use is increasing across all types of facilities.  Massive amounts of stored energy can cause serious problems if something goes wrong – including injury and death. This presentation will discuss different technologies associated with energy storage systems, and focus on lithium-ion battery technology and their hazards and risk. Applying NFPA 855 will help mitigate the risks to your facility.  The presentation will cover the basics and you will take away an understanding of the risk and how to mitigate it.
