Technical seminar | Batteries for energy storage systems: safety and performance

The two days of training will provide an overview of the different battery technologies and the main challenge of assuring good performance and, at the same time, an energy storage system that is safe.
The technical and operational integration challenges of energy storage systems will be discussed, with a focus principally on lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries. The seminar will discuss cell chemistries and their impact on performance, cost, and safety. The potential hazards will be explained, along with installation solutions to manage this risk, ranging from cell chemistry to packaging and container integration. A visit to the ENGIE Laborelec Batteries Lab control room is also planned.

Trainers

Héloïse Gennart has worked for more than 10 years in risk management, more specifically on the explosion risk. She is experienced in risk analysis, has prepared Explosion Protection Documents, and has carried out safety audits on existing installations. For several years, as part of ATEX studies, Héloïse has audited and adapted working procedures for lead-acid battery installations. Her expertise has extended to lithium-ion batteries and developing safety guidelines for energy storage systems.
Elise Nanini-Maury has been an expert in electrochemistry at ENGIE Laborelec since 2014. She currently manages technical projects in a number of areas, including energy storage in electrochemical systems such as batteries and battery safety.Elise is also responsible for collaborative projects related to energy storage interfacing with research centres and universities.
