Detect off gas and prevent thermal runaway. Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are key to utility-scale, Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESSs). They are a fundamental to the ongoing transition to more energy efficient, and smarter, power grids.
Without appropriate safety measures, Li-ion batteries can pose a serious fire risk: thermal runaway, an event that quickly escalates into a potentially destructive fire.
Existing fire safety standards and fire protection technologies are often not enough. They are designed to mitigate, rather than prevent fire, and are not designed to specifically detect the early signs of thermal runaway. This is where off-gas detection technology is important.
Off-gas detection keeps BESSs running more safely, helping operators stay on top of potential risks and operational concerns. It gives early detection designed to identify and alert when a battery off-gases so users can take appropriate preventative safety steps to reduce or even avoid the effects of thermal runaway. This allows power to continue to be delivered when it is needed.
