Inventory of Safety-related Codes and Standards for Energy Storage Systems

Posted: September 19, 2014 - 15:00 / PNNL / Reports

The purpose of this document is to identify laws; rules; model codes; and codes, standards, regulations (CSR) specifications related to safety that could apply to stationary energy storage systems (ESS) and experiences to date securing approval of ESS in relation to CSR. This information is intended to assist in securing approval of ESS under current CSR and to identification of new CSR or revisions to existing CSR and necessary supporting research and documentation that can foster the deployment of safe ESS. For additional information on development and deployment of CSR see Overview of Development and Deployment of Codes, Standards and Regulations Affecting Energy Storage System Safety in the United States (Conover 2014).
