Project to Develop Hazard Assessment of Lithium Ion Batteries in Energy Storage Systems

The foundation seeks a project contractor to develop a hazard assessment of the usage of lithium ion batteries in these systems, with the project being part of a larger initiative to develop safe installation practices, fire protection guidance, and appropriate emergency response tactics.

The Fire Protection Research Foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for a new research project titled Hazard Assessment of Lithium Ion Batteries Used in Energy Storage Systems. The foundation seeks a project contractor to develop a hazard assessment of the usage of lithium ion batteries in these systems, with the project--a fixed-price project at $30,000--being part of a larger initiative to develop safe installation practices, fire protection guidance, and appropriate emergency response tactics for energy storage systems.

Proposals should be submitted to Foundation Executive Director Casey Grant by 5 p.m. EDT on May 22, emailed to [email protected]

Project tasks include a literature review and gap analysis, preparing a preliminary hazard analysis and a detailed test plan, observing the testing at a testing agency's site, and preparing a final report.

The contractor will be selected on May 29, and the first and second tasks should be completed by July 17. A draft final report is due by Sept. 4 and the final report by Oct. 2.
