Course Description: Advancing technology is driving the innovation of power sources required to operate modern equipment. Power system advancements have allowed for the continuous operation of equipment as well as portability from one location to another. Further advancements continue to increase demand for the capacity to store energy for future use. Energy Storage Systems (ESS) meet the need for having reliable power supplies at a future time, but present serious challenges and hazards to the facility owner, fire protection engineer/consultant, and the professional fire fighter. This webinar will provide an understanding of the types of Energy Storage Systems, how they are constructed, and the fire hazards associated. Current code requirements for ESS fire protection will also be reviewed along with best practices to help ensure a safe environment for the facility and its occupants.

Learning Objectives:
• Identify and describe the various Energy Storage Systems (ESS) in use today
• Explain the fire hazards associated with battery storage systems
• Describe the unique fire hazards when using Lithium-Ion batteries
• Identify and apply current code requirements for Energy Storage System (ESS) fire protection
