Corina Neumeister, Nabaltec, panellist for pinfa, noted that non-halogenated flame retardant solutions today exist for many energy applications, including for the specific performance and safety requirements of e.g. photovoltaics and electric vehicle charging systems, as well as for the specialist cables for these different systems. Industry R&D into materials fire safety is today actively addressing new challenges relating to batteries and to power management and drives in e-mobility. There is potential to transfer new developments in fire performance materials to battery storage. However, this will only happen if regulators (e.g. for buildings) or industry (electrical systems providers, power utilities) set fire standards for materials used in battery storage systems.
