Alternative Energy, Electrical Safety Standards Symposium Slated for December

Professionals in electric, alternative energy, and safety industries will gain expert knowledge on these issues in a forum led by industry leaders, said NFPA.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and its affiliate, The Fire Protection Research Foundation, will host a one-day Alternative Energy Technologies and Electrical Safety Standards Symposium Dec. 6, 2011, in Atlanta.

The Symposium comes at a significant turning point as more businesses and consumers are turning to alternative energy sources and technologies. Developments in the field are proliferating at an ever increasing rate, and new questions about safety and reliability continue to be raised.

“The landscape for electric and alternative technologies is rapidly changing,” said Kathleen Almand, executive director of the Fire Protection Research Foundation. “New technology brings new safety issues to consider, so it’s important to continue to learn and develop appropriate safety procedures. The Symposium will provide an opportunity for attendees to get familiar with these technologies and get a glimpse of what lies ahead.”

Professionals in electric, alternative energy, and safety industries will gain expert knowledge on these issues in a forum led by industry leaders. They will discuss safety aspects of alternative energy technologies and how they relate to the National Electrical Code® and related standards. Electrical safety standards pertaining to electric vehicles will also be discussed.
