The importance of energy storage systems and how to ensure their safety with the help of TÜV SÜD

Energy storage systems (ESS) play a significant role in progressing global sustainability efforts by increasing the availability and reliability of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar and reducing the reliance on fossil fuels.

An energy storage system captures, stores, and releases energy as needed, enabling efficient energy management. It stores surplus energy for later use during high-demand or limited-supply periods. These systems can be found in numerous industries and applications, such as energy companies, grid system providers, or commercial and industrial operations. Thus, they are essential for moving towards sustainable energy solutions.


Why is testing of Energy Storage Systems important?

Stationary Storage Systems are vital components in energy management. To gain market acceptance, they must not only be safe and reliable but also adhere to the diverse legal and technical requirements of their target countries.

Testing energy storage systems offers several advantages for manufacturers and their customers:

  • Build Customer Trust: Assure your customers that your products meet the highest safety standards for energy storage systems.
  • Gain a Competitive Edge: Enhance your market position by shortening lead times and streamlining processes. Collaborate with us for support throughout the entire testing and certification journey.
  • Mitigate Risks: Detect design issues early on, minimizing the chances of costly redesigns. Ensure that your product adheres to international regulatory standards. 
  • Broaden Market Reach: Make your energy storage systems compatible with global requirements.
