The battery safety dance

June 26, 2024
Plaza Ballroom I II
Electric vehicle and the grid , Battery storage , Policy and regulation

8:30-9:15 AM PST

 We can dance if we want to, but we'd rather talk about battery energy storage fires. More specifically, storage safety. This session will incorporate fire officials into a discussion centered on the uniqueness of battery fires, how to prevent them, and how to fight them. Panelists will share what it means to "fail safe," elaborate on prevention and safety mechanisms, and consider how to effectively communicate risks to the community.
