  • Earlier this month, the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability of the U.S. Department of Energy issued the “Energy Storage Safety Strategic Plan.” The Plan recognizes energy storage as an emerging integral component of a developing resilient grid. The Plan is designed to ensure the safe application and use of energy storage. The Plan discusses and reviews three linked Safety components: engineering; response to incidences; and best practices, standard, codes, and regulations. The Plan discusses these components and reviews them in detail. Michael Stosser of Sutherland’s Energy Practice participated in the DOE Working Group that prepared the Plan and was a contributor to it.
