Battery operators receive safety notifications weeks in advance
MUNICH, Germany, June 14, 2023—ACCURE Battery Intelligence, the leader in predictive analytics software for energy storage, today announced several innovative safety-focused functionalities in its flagship ACCURE Safety Manager™ solution. This stride in innovation introduces an intuitive battery safety scoring system, data-informed action recommendations, and active alerting across multiple communication channels. The software provides weeks of advance notice of safety-critical problems, empowering operators to act before a battery incident occurs. This lead time is critical to preventing thermal runaway events that can spark fires and explosions.
Battery incidents continue to impact energy and automotive companies, costing billions in damages and lost revenue. According to the EPRI BESS Failure Event Database, more than 50 publicly known stationary storage safety events have occurred since 2018. Many energy storage safety efforts have focused on containment rather than prevention. By contrast, ACCURE’s solution takes a proactive, data-focused approach to address safety issues early and strategically before they become dangerous.
“We go well beyond the capabilities of an onboard battery management system in identifying safety risks,” said Dr. Kai-Phillip Kairies, CEO and co-founder of ACCURE. “We analyze operational anomalies, identify error patterns, and use this information to evaluate the entire system. Our solution gives battery operators the knowledge to make informed decisions among all their battery portfolios.”
Receive battery safety insights before there is an incident
The ACCURE Safety Manager accurately predicts battery problems weeks before an incident by processing large amounts of data with cloud computing. This predictive analytics software uses physics-based modeling and artificial intelligence to continuously monitor and detect over 20 safety-relevant anomalies. These include cell and module defects, battery management system (BMS) errors, and cell damage caused by environment-related factors such as poor HVAC performance.
By having battery safety information readily available, owners and operators can transition to condition-based asset management practices. This allows them to realize substantial operations and maintenance (O&M) and insurance savings while safely managing the risks of energy storage.
New and enhanced features to maximize battery safety
The latest ACCURE Safety Manager software release includes the following features that substantially increases the safety of battery energy storage system and electric fleets:
“These latest updates empower battery operators with proactive insights to prevent catastrophic events,” Kairies said. “With the ACCURE Safety Manager solution, we go beyond cost containment and unplanned downtimes, analyzing anomalies and providing data-based recommendations to avoid problems. Our intuitive dashboard, safety scoring system, and mission-critical alerts enable strategic management of these important assets, saving costs, increasing revenue, and ensuring peace of mind."
