New report: Fire risk associated with storage of disconnected batteries

In recent years, the use of batteries has increased, especially lithium-ion batteries. With increased circulation, there will also be an increased need to store disconnected batteries for shorter or longer periods.

The Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning (DSB) and the Norwegian Building Authorities (DiBK) have asked us to map where large quantities of disconnected lithium-ion batteries are stored, how they are handled and stored, and identify any associated fire risks. Based on this information, we have identified necessary precautions and risk mitigation measures. The results of the study will be used as a basis for a guide for the safe storage of disconnected lithium / lithium-ion batteries.
