Welcome to the Safety and standards course.

Welcome to the Safety and Standards for Energy Storage Systems course.

Course Overview

The transportation and energy ecosystems have undergone a dynamic transition globally with a paradigm shift from lead-acid to lithium-ion batteries. This shift to batteries with high capacity demands effective Energy Storage Systems.

Battery Energy Storage Systems help create better efficiency, increased stability, and capacity for the grid by saving energy for later use. As we scale up the production and usage of energy storage systems, it is critical to establish, understand, and follow standards and safety precautions to avoid future predicaments.
