Grid-Scale Lithium-ion Batteries – the Next Grenfell?

The race for renewable energy driven by the 2050 Net Zero target requires energy storage and this is bringing large lithium-ion batteries into our day to day lives, close to our homes and work-places, on an unprecedented scale.

Concern that this new aspect of the energy sector is almost unregulated has brought together three expert physicists (Professor Wade Allison, Dr Fordham and Professor Sir David Melville) to call upon Government and regulators to begin an urgent review of the burgeoning proposals for mega-scale Lithium-ion battery developments that call safety and policy into question.
