Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) are increasingly being installed at facilities to supplement renewable energy installations with energy storage and stability in electrical supply.
The use of Lithium-ion (li-ion) batteries in portable devices has seen a substantial growth in the last decade, and they are also popular for use in BESS.
As a result, li-ion battery fires have been subject to much attention (see emerging risk report #72 e-bike battery fire) and we may see more larger scale fires unless adequate quality, monitoring and protection are implemented.
