AEGIS Loss Control is pleased to announce its latest webinar, Battery Energy Storage Sytems Update, on November 2 at 2:00 pm EDT.
Who should attend
Power plant employees as well as individuals engaged in renewable energy efforts as electric generation continues to evolve its portfolio of renewable and sustainable production.
What is covered
Large-scale battery energy storage systems are constantly evolving, and that continues to drive a series of ongoing improvements and modifications to the NFPA 855 Standard for the Installation of Stationary Energy Storage Systems, the International Fire Code (IFC), state codes and lessons learned.
This webinar will address changes in code requirements in the year since the last AEGIS Loss Control webinar on this topic, as well as recent advancements in battery storage technology. It will also review current approaches and changes to managing large-scale battery failures and fires. Because the industry continues to develop projectable data, and because codes continue to change, this presentation will draw from recent testing as well as real-life experiences with fire detection and suppression systems. Further updates on the explosion hazard will be included as well.
