Safety hazards are characterized and mitigated with informed and comprehensive approaches to reduce the probability and severity of safety events.

Gaps to this future state
  • Battery thermal runaway characterization and mitigation
  • Siting risk management practices
  • Emerging storage technology safety information and analysis
  • Failure modes and effects analyses
  • Fire hazard testing and models

Community Resilience and Public Safety Applications Viable

Future State Leader:
Nick Tumilowicz

Solutions are developed and demonstrated to support a range of customer and community resilience applications for disruptions and disasters.

Gaps to this future state
  • Quantification of resilience value for communities
  • Energy storage public safety use definition
  • Community and customer awareness of options
  • Coordination of customer and utility assets
