JRC exploratory research: Safer Li-ion batteries by preventing thermal propagation

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission organised a workshop under the umbrella of its Exploratory Research Programme. The Workshop titled: ‘Safer Li-ion batteries by preventing thermal propagation?’ was held at the Directorate C-Energy, Transport and Climate in Petten on 8-9 March 2018. The workshop offered a platform where leading experts exchanged ideas and research efforts on thermal propagation testing, new methodologies, policy and standardisation issues and brain-stormed on the potential impact of preventing thermal propagation on the safety testing landscape. The input of some of the major stakeholders from industry and research to this event proved very participative on the relevant technical issues discussed, and on the identification of improvements of existing testing methodologies and mitigation strategies. This technical report presents a summary of the main discussion points, conclusions and outcomes of the workshop as agreed by their presenters
