Safety program DNV-GL lithium-ion battery

DNV-GL recently completed an extensive study on battery safety and summarised the results of the study in a report entitled Technical Reference for Li-ion Battery Explosion Risk and Fire Suppression. The project resulted from a joint development initiative for the safety of lithium-ion batteries and included various players from the maritime industry, including ABB, Corvus, Leclanché, Kongsberg and many others. Although the programme comprises partners from the maritime industry, the lessons can also be applied to the stationary energy storage market.
