Risks and rewards of lithium-ion and energy storage systems
Lithium-ion batteries are fragile, and any electrical, thermal, or mechanical abuse can initiate thermal runaway.
E-bikes and e-scooters are everywhere, and over-charging them is a fire hazard.
Energy storage systems provide clean, low-cost, long-duration sources of energy, but they also present significant life-safety hazards – and they're found in every municipality.
This interactive session provides resources for firefighters and educators to deal with lithium-ion and energy storage systems, educational resources, and access to free online training. There are lots of cool videos too!
