    Energy Storage Safety Set to Move Forward in 2018 with New Fire Standards

    Most of the focus on energy storage safety has been on mobile applications, given the spate of exploding laptop and phone batteries. Lithium-ion batteries used in those applications are under tighter restrictions for size and density that can lead to higher risks. Stationary storage applications are often safer than mobile uses because there are not the same space constraints. But in some markets, space can also be an issue for stationary storage, especially with projects that use lithium-ion batteries.
