Safety is a consideration when it comes to any energy asset and lithium-ion batteries are no exception. Fires are rare, but do happen, particularly when you consider how much juice lithium storage systems can pack into a fairly small space. In this panel from the Energy Storage Summit 2021, experts including firefighter Charlie Pugsley of London Fire Brigade talk about the strategies stakeholders should be using today and in the future to ensure a safe industry for all. 

Moderated by Dan Taylor, co-founder and director at energy systems solutions company Ion Ventures, this session brought us some strong insights into the many aspects of health and safety that everyone in the industry should think about. 

Moderator: Dan Taylor, co-founder and director, Ion Ventures

Panellists: Charlie Pugsley, deputy assistant commissioner for fire safety, London Fire Brigade

Catalina Guillen-Rozo, chair of the Electricity Storage Network's sustainability, safety and supply chain working group (and regulation and public affairs lead, Zenobe Energy)
