September 11, 2019 – To help provide answers to different stakeholders interested in energy storage system (ESS) technologies, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has released NFPA 855, Standard for the Installation…
Like the ever-changing sustainable energy industry, our wiring methods are also evolving. The increase in outdoor installations opens new opportunities for more innovative products to help solve today’s new challenges.
The emergence of energy storage systems (ESSs), due to production from alternative energies such as wind and solar installations, has driven the need for installation requirements within the NEC for the safe installation of these energy storage systems.
Energy storage has been a hot topic of conversation over the past few years. We’ve heard about futuristic innovations, larger-than-life company leaders like Elon Musk putting his storage company on the map, and states vowing to become energy independent through renewable resource use.
In addition to paying taxes, there is one thing you can count on for sure: the electrical industry will continue to evolve. All we have to do is look at energy storage as an example and how it has evolved over the past two centuries.
UL Certifies/Lists energy storage systems for use in accordance with new Article 706 in the 2017 NEC. UL Certifies/Lists these systems under the product category Energy Storage Systems and Equipment (FTBW).
