Energy Storage System (ESS) Technologies
Presented by Jen L. Hoyt P.E. Code Red Consultants
Energy Storage Systems (ESS) are prevalent in the emerging environmentally conscious construction industry. To-date, many high-profile ESS installations utilize lithium-ion chemistry, but new battery technologies are being explored for commercial use. Join us as we explore these technologies as they transition from laboratory research to industrial production and discuss the working principles of various technologies. We will discuss each technology’s advantages and disadvantages as lithium-ion battery replacement candidates focusing on fire risk, affordability, scale, and other technological challenges remaining to advance towards potential mass production.
