SGS Issues UL 9540 Certification to Gotion High-Tech's 2.7MWh Energy Storage System
On January 14, 2022, Gotion High-Tech's 2.7MWh energy storage system received UL 9540 certification from SGS at the Gotion Base in Nantong. The UL 9540 certificate not only proves that Gotion's energy storage system meets the highest global standards in terms of safety and quality but also provides reliable technical support for the safe and long-term operation of the company in the North American market.
SGS is an internationally recognized testing, inspection and certification company. The 2.7MWh energy storage system has undergone comprehensive technical inspection and strict testing from SGS. This includes close inspection of the system design, electrical products safety, battery safety, grid connection functions, environmental adaptability, functional safety and a complete technical assessment for system and production process quality control.
High Standards to Ensure Product Safety
As an important technology and fundamental tool to support the development of the new power system, energy storage is of great significance to promote green energy transition, ensure energy security, and achieve carbon peak and neutrality. The safety of energy storage systems has long been a common concern in the industry, and the relevant standards have been improved continuously. North America, as one of the most important markets for energy storage globally, has extremely strict quality and safety regulations for energy storage systems.
In 2015, UL 9540, the world's first safety standard for energy storage systems, was authorized as a national standard in the US and has since become widely recognized by its fire and construction authorities. In 2016, it was authorized as a national standard in Canada. Various standards such as the National Electrical Code, International Fire Code (IFC), International Building Code (IBC), International Residential Code (IRC) and the NFPA855 issued by the National Fire Protection Association in 2019 all require energy storage systems to be UL 9540 certified. As one of the most authoritative safety standards, UL 9540 enjoys high recognition in both North American and the global market. This standard poses great challenges to the research and development of enterprise products and also requires high-level professional technology and services of the third-party certification organization. This has made the certificate difficult to obtain.
