Advancing Safer, More Sustainable Energy Storage at Scale

Discover how UL Solutions is helping the world access abundant green power through safer storage technology.

Renewable energy produced by nature, stored by users

Without enhanced battery technology, the world cannot realize the benefits of decarbonized power generation or a decentralized energy grid.  

Distributed energy resources (DERS) offer significant potential to harness green power, overcome interruptions in power generation via battery energy storage systems (BESS), and realize the efficiency of DC in more environments. 

We help the industry tackle safety, interoperability and building integration challenges inherent in energy storage — and understand system-wide and component-level needs — to advance safer progress toward clean energy goals.

Helping battery innovators enhance energy storage capacity worldwide

UL Solutions recognizes the transformative potential of battery storage and offers comprehensive strategies to mitigate risks before, during and after manufacture, installation and use.  
From standards development to testing and certification services for EV and industrial batteries, we help the energy storage industry understand the regulatory landscape, proactively address safety and performance challenges, and streamline go-to-market activities. Our efforts also help empower end users to generate, store and use power according to their own needs, and contribute back to the grid if they choose.

Thorough testing services provided by energy transition experts

The energy transition story is still in its first chapters. The marketplace for supplies, from bidirectional charging cables to complete DERs, is still evolving as technology advances and emerging standards gain consensus. UL Solutions provides critical services that help manufacturers demonstrate performance and safety via testing, inspection and certification services offered in the field, through simulation or in laboratories around the world.

Create safer linkages with the shared power grid

Localized renewable energy power generation can send power back to the grid which defrays costs for asset owners and helps accelerate the wider energy transition. But our aging power grid isn’t quite ready for bidirectional energy flow in all cases, and where it is possible, utilities have rigorous grid code compliance regulations. We have close relationships with utilities and regulators and understand where vulnerabilities exist and how to maximize opportunities.

Safer storage that protects property and people

New developments that include on-site power production will also need on-site storage to maintain a steady supply of power for residents, workers, etc. Our team of built-environment engineering leaders work closely with the real estate and construction industries to safely add battery storage in compliance with safety standards that reflect new use cases for DERs, microgrids and BESS.
