Global EV Battery Safety Forum

The Indian Union Ministry of Heavy Industries (MHI) has notified fresh testing parameters for electric vehicles to enhance their battery safety. These tests are followed and widely accepted internationally for ensuring passenger safety in EVs, according to the ministry. More importantly, MHI has made these tests mandatory for all EV and battery suppliers as a precondition for claiming incentives under the ministry’s three flagship schemes, namely PLI schemes for automobile and components, PLI scheme for Advanced Cell Chemistry (ACC), and FAME II scheme, with effect from 1st April 2023.
According to the official memorandum, the latest regulation aims to ensure human safety of battery vehicles by enhancing quality at three levels, namely Battery Pack, Battery Management System (BMS), and at Cell level. The government’s latest regulation on battery safety will go a long way in ensuring the reliability of EVs for users in the country. The mandatory nature of the testing
guidelines for availing incentives will prevent OEMs and battery suppliers from by-passing essential safety checks as a simple way of cost-cutting.
India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) the leading alliance with 170+ member organizations working on the fire, safety and standards for batteries since 2016 and launched Battery Safety and Standards Taskforce. IESA closely work with ARAI, ICAT, BIS and other government bodies to ensure vehicle safety should be the priority for the industry. With multiple fire issues in electric 2W and 3W in India in recent times raised the global attention to India. IESA is taking proactive steps to ensure that all manufacturing stakeholders including batteries, EVs and EV components adhere to these guidelines to create a safer ecosystem. IESA is organizing this dedicated forum to help the industry to create a safer and sustainable EV ecosystem in India.
