Research Corner: Outdoor Lithium-Ion Energy Storage Systems

UL’s Fire Safety Research Institute conducted three experiments on an intermodal container that was configured to represent an outdoor modular walk-in energy storage system, such as the one where an explosion occurred in April 2019. The experiments were designed to demonstrate the fundamental fire and explosion hazards that develop when cascading thermal runaway occurs inside …
