SECTION II: Object of the contract

Title:United Kingdom: Electricity Storage Health and Safety Standards Gap Analysis
Reference No: Gap Analysis

A gap analysis to identify whether there are any gaps in health and safety standards as well as how accessible and easy to navigate the current standards framework is. This piece of work will provide a view on whether the current health and safety standards framework enables the safe installation, maintenance and decommissioning of storage devices and subsequent protection of those interacting with these devices, such as consumers in the home. This work is for the expected increases in deployment of electricity storage at grid scale, as well as in commercial and domestic properties.

Overall research question: Is the current health and safety standards framework for electricity storage appropriate, robust and future proofed for the expected increase in deployment and as the technologies develop? If not, how should this be addressed?

We ask organisations to undertake an in-depth review of health and safety standards that are applicable to electricity storage technologies that are being deployed or at pre-deployment (Technology Readiness levels of 8 or higher) at domestic, commercial and industrial, and grid scales. For each of these scales we would like the high-risk safety areas to be identified and a review of the contents of standards (both current and in development) to see whether each area has been adequately covered. This piece of work will provide analysis on whether the current health and safety standards framework enables the safe installation, maintenance, operation and decommissioning of storage devices and subsequent protection of those interacting with these devices, such as consumers in the home. Finally, a set of recommendations for how to address any issues identified should be made.

We are inviting organisations to propose their own methodologies to deliver this work and additional information will be available when the HELGA competition launches (details below).
