PNNL Hosts 2024 Energy Storage Safety & Reliability Forum

Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL) hosted the 2024 Energy Storage Safety & Reliability Forum on May 14-16 at Discovery Hall on the PNNL campus. The event provided about 200 guests the opportunity to learn about the latest developments, share lessons learned and best practices, and discuss the ongoing challenged of ensuring energy storage systems are safe and reliable.

The three-day agenda featured engaging speakers from three continents comprised of energy storage technology developers, emergency responders, code officials, utilities, integrators, standards developers, international research institutions, and numerous experts from PNNL and Sandia National Laboratories.

In addition to the speakers, guests were treated to a full day of touring PNNL’s exceptional facilities including their Electricity Infrastructure Operations Center (EIOC), Energy Science Center, B-Reactor, and the new $75 million Grid Storage launchpad (GSL). The GSL’s goal is to accelerate the development and deployment of next generations grid storage technologies through systematic and independent validation.
