Description: The development of the Smart Energy Networks is a key priority to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable energy system in Europe. Li-ion battery is a very promising technology for improving the penetration of RES in the energy mix and enabling a better management of energy in the European grid. The objective of the STABALID project is to facilitate the deployment of safe stationary batteries with a cell size larger than 10 Ah and systems larger than 1 MWh. To reach this objective, the consortium will develop a new testing procedure for stationary batteries that will become a new international standard document. The testing procedure will be developed based on a detail risk analysis and the review of existing standards applicable for stationary batteries in Europe, in Japan and in the USA. The new standards as well as the regulatory framework will be developed to guarantee safety during the whole life cycle of the batteries. The testing procedure will be developed in coordination with Japan. The project is led by the world leading manufacturing company, SAFT, and involves a utility company as representative of end-users, as well as reference organizations for inspection, testing and certification.
EU-VRi Specific Role: EU-VRi will be in charge of the management of the project, including the financial and administrative coordination, the support to the Steering Committee, as well as the dissemination activities (relations with Japanese partners and the professional associations that are concerned by the standard).
