    1. How Energy Storage Could Disrupt Energy As We Know It

      How Energy Storage Could Disrupt Energy As We Know It

      The biggest criticism of wind and solar energy has long been their variability as sources of energy for the grid. The sun is only out during the day, and the wind doesn't blow 24/7. They're not great "baseload" sources of electricity, and their variability can make the rest of the grid harder to manage.

      Saft Seanergy® energy storage systems are now approved by the Norwegian Maritime Authority

      Paris, October 19, 2016 – Saft has obtained approval of its Seanergy® marine energy storage system by the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA) for use in a variety of hybrid and fully electric propulsion applications. Saft is the only manufacturer of marine lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries to use the Li-ion Super-Phosphate® (SLFP) chemistry which offers the highest levels of safety, performance and reliability. The approval process was based on simulated thermal runaway tests carried out on the Seanergy® systems by an independent laboratory in August 2016. During the propagation test 1, a cell was forced into a thermal runaway situation by a specific device inserted inside the cell. The test was performed three times. Thanks to the Super-phosphate® chemistry, the batteries passed the test on each occasion with no uncontrolled event, no fire and no explosion, with nearby cells remaining in a safe condition and no propagation to neighboring modules and without any active means of fire suppression.
