The Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE) has worked with industry and other stakeholders to develop the Energy Storage Safety Strategic Plan, a roadmap for grid energy storage safety that highlights safety validation techniques, incident preparedness, safety codes, standards, and regulations. The Plan, which is now available for downloading, also makes recommendations for near- and long-term actions.  The Energy Storage Safety Strategic Plan complements two reports released by OE earlier this year: the Overview of Development and Deployment of Codes, Standards and Regulations Affecting Energy Storage System Safety in the United States and the Inventory of Safety-related Codes and Standards for Energy Storage Systems.

To learn more about the Plan and energy storage, read the blog posting from Dr. Imre Gyuk, Manager of the Energy Storage Program, and visit the Energy Storage Program page.
