Virtual Training Workshop-Safety Standard Development of Energy Storage.pdfdownload


Under the goal of achieving carbon peaking and carbon neutrality, there will be overarching and systematic changes in China's industry and technology structure. Industries with high energy consumption and carbon emission will accelerate their transformation, upgrading or withdrawal. A large number of new technologies,new processes and new forms of business will emerge. Clean electricity, electric vehicles, new materials, high-end equipment, and green environmental protection will accelerate development, especially in hydrogen energy, electrochemical energy storage, carbon capture, power storage, heat storage, pumped storage, and electric fuel. Some traditional security risks will also change with the change of industrial structure. New risks that are invisible and intangible will gradually emerge, bringing impacts and challenges to safety supervision.

How to adapt to the new situation and ensure the realization of carbon peaking and carbon neutrality goals has become an important issue for comprehensively implementing the new development philosophy and promoting high-quality development. National Academyof Safety Science and Engineering, MEM (NASSE) as a leading think tank in safety science and engineering in China, sustained attention to the preventionand control of the security risks under the carbon peaking and carbon neutrality goals. It has also carried out various forms of investigation and research on this topic, and conducted in-depth discussions and exchanges with Chinese and foreign enterprises and relevant research institutions. On the basis of understanding the path of achieving "dual carbon" targets in various industries, it analyzed the potential security risks and issued aseries of prevention and control measures.

In order to further enhance the public's awareness of new security risks under the"dual carbon" target, and promote the safety protection of relatedenterprises, NASSE will work with ECP and other partners to hold a series of training activities on new security risk prevention and control under the "dual carbon" target in theform of online and offline, to exchange and share research results. The series mainly focus on the measures to resolve the major safety risks faced by the relevant industries under the "dual carbon" goal, from the aspects of development planning, standard construction, safety management, and emergency rescue. 

As the key technology of new energy, electrochemical energy storage power station plays an important role in ensuring energy security and promoting green energy transformation. It is of great significance to achieve the goal of carbon peaking and carbon neutrality. At the same time, electrochemical energy storage station also bring some new safety risks, involving risks in energy storage batteries, battery management system, cable harness, system electrical to pology, early warning and monitoring fire protection system, construction and operation environment and safety management.
