BESS Failure Event Database
This is a public resource for documenting publicly-available data on battery energy storage failure events from around the world. All information included is available in the linked public documents.
If you are interested in other EPRI energy storage safety research resources or opportunities please reach out to Dirk Long.
If there is a public event that is not included in the BESS Fire Event Database, please email the relevant information and link to supporting info to Dirk Long.
Stationary Energy Storage Failure Events
This table tracks utility and C&I scale energy storage failure events that have publicly available information.
- Note: Missing values in this table reflect unknowns.
Other Energy Storage Failure Events
This table tracks other energy storage failure events for scenarios that do not fit the criteria of the table above. This could include energy storage failures in settings like electric transportation, recycling, manufacturing, etc.
