On Tuesday, China's National Energy Administration began soliciting public comments on a new energy storage project management code, with plans to tighten the management of the construction of the increasingly common large-scale energy storage projects.
The document emphasizes the need for new energy storage project management to be safety-first and inclusive and prudent and strengthen administrative management, quality management, and safety supervision.
New energy storage project builders should strictly perform safety, fire, environmental protection, and other management procedures under laws and regulations and technical specifications, the document said.
Before the key breakthroughs in battery consistency management technology, power battery performance monitoring and evaluation system is sound, in principle, there should be no new large-scale power battery gradient utilization energy storage projects, the document said.
The document mentions that the power battery gradient utilization energy storage projects completed and put into operation should regularly assess battery performance and strengthen monitoring and supervision.
