Storage costs are falling and the industry is rapidly ramping up to deploy more and larger projects across the US, directly onto the grid and behind the meter. But even as storage moves into the mainstream, many stakeholders are still unfamiliar with codes, standards, permitting, and end-of-life expectations.  Product and system safety and performance standards continue to evolve rapidly to define common expectations for critical attributes for stationary battery applications, repurposed EV batteries, and energy storage systems. Most importantly, the National Fire Protection Association will implement major changes to fire and safety codes for energy storage systems in 2018.  Whether you’re a developer or a buyer, you need to join this session to hear the latest on product and system standards, permitting, forthcoming fire/safety codes, and end-of-life treatment.
