Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) are becoming much more prevalent in the push for sustainable and reliable energy. It is important to understand these systems, their failures and most importantly, the fire protection measures that can be utilized to protect against potential fire hazards. This presentation will outline the risks associated with Battery Energy Storage Systems and the types of fire protection systems that may be used in these situations to detect the early stages, mitigate damage and protect against exposure.
