DNV GL’s 2019 Battery Performance Scorecard helps investors, lenders, developers, and EPCs inform their procurement strategies and mitigate risk over the lifetime of a project. The presented results provide guidance to assess the suitability of supplier warranties, estimate replacement costs, and effectively manage and operate specific battery technologies. The scorecard result can help ensure that a selected technology is well matched to your intended storage application. This second annual Scorecard includes more participants and data, new chemistries, and additional discussions on battery safety.
Join us on Thursday, January 30th at 2:00 PM EST to learn about the key findings of the report, as well as important safety insights and answers to our top FAQs since its release in November 2019.
At the end of this webinar, you’ll have answers to these common Scorecard questions and more:
- What are the results of DNV GL’s Scorecard testing?
- How many cells have you tested?
- What is the value of testing?
- How many years of testing is in the Scorecard?
- How can I use the Scorecard?
- Will manufacturers continue to be anonymized in future reports?
- What’s the best battery chemistry?
- What do I need to know about battery safety?
