Studies have shown that the battery energy storage system operated by APS in Arizona has occurred in April 2019, whether it is an energy storage system operator or firefighters, there is an error in extinguishing and dealing with fire. The report pointed out that this battery energy storage system has fired and causes the explosion to be unexpected, and the danger of battery energy storage facilities will be warned. The energy storage system operator supply to the local firefighter emergency plan lacks related key details that may face threats.

Moreover, the energy storage industry has never experienced such a serious explosive event: the powerful gas explosion in the internal accumulation of battery energy storage facilities is so huge, so that a firefighter flew more than ten meters away. If people understand that they may explode, they will change the risk of processing grid size battery energy storage systems. As long as the firefighters understand the details of the event, similar events will be dealt with in the future.

After this event, many battery energy storage system developers improve the safety design of the energy storage system to prevent similar events from once again. This incident caused 4 firefighters injured hospitalization. However, a survey of the US Insurance Laboratory (UL) Firefighight Security Research Institute will prompt security measures similar to battery energy storage systems to supply emergency responders to process battery energy storage systems.

And promote battery energy storage system developers to inform emergency responders. One of the authors of the Author's Institute of Firefighight Safety, Survey Report, said: "People do not want the development of the energy storage industry to fall into stop, to deploy a large number of energy storage systems to promote the development of renewable energy industry. But to find a compromise method in terms of security, and bring confidence in firefighters.

"The fire and explosion of the MCMicken battery energy storage system leads to some energy storage and developers to cancel the investment and deployment of battery energy storage projects. One reason is that residents and firefighters are worried that they have no ability to have similar fires. Therefore, actively actively communicating and communicating with local firefighters has become the key to deploying battery energy storage projects.

Many other battery energy storage projects show that battery energy storage system developers can meet the security needs of local communities. In low-carbon power grids, battery energy storage systems are expected to play an increasingly important use in renewable energy power generation. But only developers get the trust of firefighters, this situation will happen.

What is the survey report published in July this year: the firefighter is trying to fight fire in the case of uninformed. The survey report pointed out that a lithium-ion battery in the McMicket battery energy storage system entered the thermal out-of control state, due to overheating fire and ignited the nearby battery until the entire battery. Industry experts have found that the gas dissipated after the battery is burned in a narrow space, and reaches a certain temperature and exploding under mixing conditions of oxygen.

However, the firefighter does not have the expertise of battery safety and related experience. When they receive a fire alarm phone, I learned that APS has a fire in a battery energy storage system operated in the suburbs of Phoenix. Police.

The research report found that even the firefighters have not introduced the basic harm related to the battery energy storage system through dangerous courses. Battery energy storage system operators do not have on how to handle white steam supply devices from container battery energy storage systems. Kerber said that "firefighters have contacted the dangerous goods experts in Phoenix, trying to figure out how to do it.

However, the emergency plan does not include the battery thermal out of control, so there is no good response method at the time. "The fire department uses the detection instrument to detect gas leaks, so they cleaned up a 300-foot range and measured with their sensors. They found that the carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide content at the scene at the scene.

However, the firefighters did not detect the concentration of explosive gases accumulated inside the container battery energy storage facility. Kerber said that this is usually more advanced instead of handheld devices. There is no such device in the battery energy storage system, even if there is a detection device internally, its communication signal is also interrupted after the problem begins.

Kerber said: "The fire department is trying to stabilize the situation, hoping to reduce the loss. "The idea of ​​stable events causes firefighters to decide to open the door of the container battery energy storage system. Before making this decision, the smoke decreased, and the hot zone that can be measured in the closed space seems to be smaller.

Four firefighters have opened the door to collect more data, and determine whether their internal trend constitutes a continuous threat. After opening the door, the situation seems good. The firefighter did not find any signs of combustion internally, and the measurement of approximately three minutes before the explosion, but suddenly happened.

The hot waves of the explosion exploded a firefighter for more than 10 meters away, other firefighters's helmets and masks were detached, and four firefighters lost their consciousness on the spot. Kerber said: "At the end of the root, the fire department has the right to make a decision, but the firefighters believe that the firefighters are getting better, and the incident is tending to stabilize. They have misjudge.

"Communication and learning knowledge in the fire department has been developing, and the fire safety regulations have continued to develop, and the power industry and firefighters can now understand more information. But there is a risk that its related experience and lessons will not be unified between nearly 30,000 fire sectors in the United States. Kerber said: "The fire department of the United States is very dispersed, no mechanism can tell everyone the lesson of this incident.

"The grid size battery energy storage system is still a relatively new thing, only several states in the United States. However, it is expected that the capacity of battery energy storage system deployed in 2021 will be seven times the 2019, which will make battery energy storage systems to more places. Municipalities such as Phoenix may have a well-equipped fire department and special hazardous materials group.

However, the elimination personnel in remote areas must understand the safety of lithium-ion battery energy storage systems. This fire explosion has changed some people's ideas. Due to the opposition of local residents, a installed capacity planned in the Northern ValleyCenter deployed in San Diego is 140MW battery development project failed to obtain the local department's license in July this year.

According to local newspaper Valleyroadrunner, a resident testified at the planning meeting: "Just last year, the APS has a fire explosion in a battery energy storage system operating in Arizona, causing 4 firefighters injured, causing APS companies. Close two other battery energy storage systems. "And energy storage developers insist that any fire will be controlled on the battery module and container level, but this does not affect the results of the voting.

In the suburbs of the New Hampshire, the suburbs of the deployment of the installed capacity of 100MW battery energy storage, developers Eneelgreenpower also encountered similar problems. According to local media reports, a local fire captain showed a photo that is allegedly an APS battery energy storage system, but those photos actually not from that fire event. EnelGreenPower has to withdraw an application for this year.

Danielfinn-foley, director of research institution, Woodmackenzie, said: 'Neighboring Effect' is undoubtedly an important factor in hindering the development of energy industry, we are seeing this will also affect energy storage deployment. But against opinions do not allow the energy storage industry to stagnate. This will affect the deployment of individual projects, but as a macro trend, I think it is unstoppable.

(Note: The neighboring effect refers to the negative impact of people's health, environmental quality and asset value, etc. due to the concern of garbage dumps, nuclear power plants, etc. ) Active communication and give people a good impression battery energy storage system developer can relieve this situation through active contact communities and actively investive local security.

Stratasolar is deploying a 100MW / 400MWH battery energy storage system in Wencha County, Los Angeles. Its development agreement requires local water infrastructure in accordance with local regulations, so STRATA has paid upgrades and transformed costs for this reason. Stratasolar is responsible for the development of the development of the western business development, Willmitchell, said: "The fire department is very excited about this.

When they are now in that area, they can get reliable water sources. "He added that this investment has nothing to do with deploying battery energy storage system. The energy storage system is designed to accommodate flammable gases to prevent explosions; if fire events occur, firefighters do not interfere.

However, the transformation and upgrading of water resources will help them extinguish the fire in the surrounding area. Mitchell is also a volunteer firefighter in the northern Mall of San Francisco. He said that during this battery energy storage system development process, this practice provides a basis for the cooperation between Stratasolar and local licensing agencies.

He said: "If you can solve the problem as soon as possible, and take a proactive approach, and supply facts, according to relevant related experience, local government officials and regulators will be fair and judge. If you reach or exceed these guidelines, you can become a part of the community. "Most firefighters have never responded to relevant experience in fire-wide battery energy storage system, so their first impression of this technology may come from a shocking news report.

The energy storage developer must take into account the current risks, while explaining how the battery energy storage system benefits the surrounding communities and serves a broader power supply service.
