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 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 our Storage Safety email.

If you would like to be notified when a new event is added to this database or are interested in other EPRI energy storage safety research resources and opportunities please reach out to our Storage Safety email.

Stationary Energy Storage Failure Events

This table tracks utility and C&I scale energy storage failure events with publicly available information.

Note: Missing values in this table reflect unknowns.


Figure 1. A breakdown of the stationary energy storage failure events from the above table.

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.

Note: Missing values in this table reflect unknowns.
