Sandia National Laboratories
Exceptional service in the national interest
Sandia National Laboratories is advancing the understanding of safety and reliability of electrochemical energy storage systems for grid scale applications. Battery systems have the potential for improving the resiliency of the electric grid by providing on-demand energy storage for a variety of applications. The use of advanced battery technology however introduces new risks that must be researched and understood.
At Sandia we integrate testing expertise and thermal reaction knowledge to provide a multi-pronged approach that:
As energy storage is used to improve the resiliency of the electric grid, the safety and resiliency of the energy storage systems themselves must also be well characterized to not create additional vulnerabilities. The primary activities include:
