Webinar: "Understanding and Managing Hazards of Lithium-Ion Battery Systems"
Wednesday 1 June 2022 from 15:00 - 16:00 (CEST)

This webinar will be facilitated by Dekra with Hervé Vaudrey as speaker.

Over the last decade, rapid development of Lithium-Ion Battery (LIB) technology has provided many new opportunities for both Energy Storage Systems (ESS) and Electric Vehicle (EV) markets. At the same time, fire and explosion risks associated with LIB has become a major safety concern. While regulatory coverage for LIB storage, handling, and use is still in various stages of development, a growing body of international best practices have emerged. To safely address thermal runaway and fire events, an overview of global best practices for emergency response for LIB fires will be presented.

Aspects to be discussed in an interactive setting

  • Overview of Li-Ion Battery Challenges
  • Li-Ion Battery basics & thermal runaway
  • Prevention, Preparedness & Response
  • Emerging Best Practices for emergency response for LIB fires

You can register free of charge using the online registration form after which you will receive a confirmation email with the link to join.
