|Abstract:||In this chapter the safety of rechargeable energy storage systems (RESS) is discussed with a focus on Li-ion batteries. Selected hazards such as fire, explosion, direct electrical hazards (electrical shock and arcing), indirect electrical hazards and chemical hazards are reviewed. Relevant failure scenarios – overheating, mechanical deformation, external short circuit and overcharge – are presented together with the main approaches for risk mitigation. Potential safety implications of the application of nanomaterials in RESS are discussed. Finally, a comprehensive summary of the most common tests for assessing safety under thermal, electrical and mechanical abusive conditions as described in relevant standards and regulations is given.|
