ACE Group's products have successfully passed the UL 9540A test. UL9540A is recognized as one of the most challenging international safety tests in overseas markets.
The safety of energy storage systems is a common concern in the industry, and the relevant policies are also continuously developed. UL9540A is a safety standard for energy storage systems. It includes various types of energy storage, electrochemical types such as battery energy storage systems or supercapacitor energy storage systems, chemical energy storage systems such as fuel cells, mechanical and thermal energy storage systems, which are all covered in UL9540A standard. These energy storage systems can work alone or grid-connected.
UL 9540A test was developed by UL as the world's first energy storage safety standard. It was authorized as a national standard of the United States in 2015, and also as a Canadian national standard in 2016. UL9540A is a test method used to evaluate the large-scale thermal runaway fire spread of battery energy storage systems, which is widely recognized by relevant departments. Authoritative US industry codes such as the American Electrical Code (Chapter 706), the US Residential Code (Chapter R327), the US International Fire Code (Energy Storage Chapter), and the National Fire Protection Agency's NFPA 855 standard all impose UL9540A listing requirements on energy storage systems.
At present, the UL9540A test report is a key third-party report required by North American energy storage project developers or owners when submitting relevant project approval processes. The local relevant regulatory law enforcement agencies (AHJ) will strictly review the UL9540A report according to the “NFPA855 Standard for the Installation of Stationary Energy Storage Systems “Code and the requirements of relevant regulations, by the American Fire Protection Association to evaluate whether the fire risk of the energy storage project is controllable, and formulate relevant fire emergency plans.
ACE Group successfully passed the certification this time, marks that the battery cell products developed and produced by the company have a high safety level, and have been recognized by the world's leading standards for energy storage batteries, which will help ACE Group to develop the international energy storage market better. It will also settle a good foundation for the global development of its energy storage business, and has a positive effect on expanding the international influence of products and expanding its overseas market business.
ACE Group always regards product safety as the primary condition, strictly requires products with high standards, and is committed to providing customers with high-safety and high-guarantee products. The UL9540A thermal runaway flame spread safety assessment certification is one of the most stringent safety certifications in the world which fully demonstrates ACE's high pursuit of product safety, and provides a strong guarantee for customers to seize the market in the global energy storage field.
ACE Group hopes to improve the stability and reliability of renewable energy power generation, expand the proportion of renewable energy utilization, optimize the energy structure, and help the global energy revolution with safe and innovative energy storage solutions.
