Advances in battery storage technology are constant. However, battery testing is inconsistent across the market.
According to DNV GL, the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts and certification body, manufacturers are using different chemistries, formats, and processes. In addition, system integrators are developing systems that may be useful for one application, but inefficient for another.
To this end, DNV GL has released its 2018 Battery Performance Scorecard will provide a roadmap for battery buyers to manage and operate specific battery technologies, while also estimating warranties and replacement costs. The Scorecard stems from the organization’s battery testing at its BEST Test & Commercialization Center. Located at Rochester, New York, BEST Consortium helps bring emerging technologies to the commercial market and offer companies essential product testing and qualification at a reasonable cost.
DNV GL’s BEST T&CC Scorecard brings together over 250 years of combined DNV GL and NY BEST team experience, including electrical testing of T&D equipment, battery and energy storage R&D, consultancy and testing.
