Lithium-ion an ‘unacceptable risk’ claims Arizona regulator

Alternative battery chemistries to lithium-ion should be used in utility-scale battery storage projects because the technology poses an ‘unacceptable risk’ in the case of a fire, the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) has claimed.

The damning judgment on the use of large-scale, lithium-ion storage systems comes three months after the fire at Arizona Public Service's (APS) 2MW/2MWh McMicken energy storage facility in Surprise, Arizona.

Green light for Australia battery storage standard

New rules aimed at preventing “high risk and dodgy” battery storage systems being installed in homes and businesses in Australia have been backed by regulators.

The Clean Energy Council (CEC) said the expected introduction of a new standard, which follows a five-year consultation period, was “a major win for a safe and credible battery industry and puts an end to the risk from poor quality battery installations in Australia”.
