Energy storage is an increasingly important component of America’s electric grid infrastructure, serving as a leading technology for enhancing grid reliability and keeping electricity costs low. Energy storage can mitigate the impact of power outages by providing backup power during emergencies, support an efficient and cost-effective energy system, and ensure broader electric grid reliability and stability.

As part of an effort for continuous improvement, the industry is prioritizing the incorporation of the latest best practices and strategies to maintain safety. State and local governments can support the responsible deployment and operation of energy storage by pursuing clear, uniform, and rigorous standards.

The clean energy industry, represented by the American Clean Power Association (ACP), encourages state and local jurisdictions to incorporate or adopt National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 855, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Energy Storage Systems, to guide energy storage safety.
