NFPA Energy Storage & Solar Systems Safety Training | Fire Service Edition
Battery energy storage and solar systems are poised to revolutionize our electrical network. To help the fire service handle the unique challenges presented by these rapidly growing technologies, NFPA has developed the Energy Storage & Solar Systems Safety Training course. This four hour instructor-led course will provide students with an introduction to energy storage and solar system concepts, including terminology, basic electrical theory, types of battery energy storage (Lead Acid, Lithium Ion, Sodium Sulfur, and Flow Batteries) and PV systems (thin film, mono/poly SI, CVP) , and the typical applications they will be found in. The course then provides guidance on how to handle failure modes and hazards of these technologies, including pre-incident planning, thermal runaway and re-ignition, emergency response procedures, ventilation and more.
