Standards

Standardization is a strategic business issue with a direct impact on new product development and existing product propagation. Leadership in standards and leadership in technology must go hand in hand.

Standards enable global trade and economic growth and are never neutral. They reflect the strengths and innovations of those who develop them. Therefore, non-participation in standardization gives the opportunity of decision-making over to the competition.

Thus, it is necessary that we have an International Standards Framework for Energy storage as it is an ever-growing aspect of the Energy world.

UL and IESA signed a MoU to create an Energy Storage Standards Taskforce

The key areas of mutual working are:

  1. Educating IESA members on standards development process
  2. Standards gap analysis in the identified areas of interest
  3. Standards training
  4. Formation of standards cell and UL to act as a secretariat for standards development
  5. UL standards development tool–CSDS deployment for standard development
  6. Access to relevant UL Standards

IESA joins EES Sectional Committee by BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards)

The scope of the committee includes standardization in the field of grid integrated Electrical Energy Storage Systems in India. The Sectional Committee to focus on system aspects on EES Systems rather than energy storage devices and shall prepare Indian Standards dealing with the system aspects of electrical energy storage. EES to include any type of grid-connected energy storages, which can both store electrical energy from a grid or any other source and provide electrical energy to a grid.

The Sectional Committee will be focusing on the following:

  1. Standardization in the field of grid integrated Electrical Energy Storage Systems.
  2. EES to include any type of grid-connected energy storages, which can both store electrical energy from a grid or any other source and provide electrical energy to a grid.
