Electric Vehicle Fire Risk for Charging Stations

Every electric vehicle requires a charging station, with newer models equipped with a dual charge point and battery storage system. As these vehicles journey from point A to point B, the demand for a comprehensive network of charging stations is evident. And the surge in EV charging stations flooding the market poses inherent risks associated with the transfer of high-voltage electricity between EVs and charging points.

As the EV charging station industry takes center stage, prioritizing rigorous safety standards is imperative to minimize the risk of fires. Critical factors include high-voltage transfers, meticulous installation practices, and adherence to equipment certification standards. Notably, the potential for lithium-ion battery fires during charging presents a significant threat. A compelling video demonstration vividly showcases the swift progression of a fire involving multiple vehicles at a charging station, emphasizing the urgency for robust fire suppression measures.

Given that EV charging stations frequently integrate energy storage systems (ESS), the implementation of comprehensive safety protocols is essential to address the distinctive challenges of this rapidly growing industry.

The Fire Risk

  • Numerous lithium-ion battery fires occur during the charging process due to overheating caused by defects in the battery or its management system.
  • The substantial Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in electric vehicles poses a noteworthy fire risk that warrants attention.
  • Any fire incident at an EV charging station has the potential to extend to the connected vehicle.
  • The local fire service is often unaware and inexperienced with the fire and explosion hazards of Electric Vehicles, EV Charging Stations and ESS.

Advanced Fire Suppression for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

The Stat-X® condensed aerosol system proves particularly suitable for unmanned EV charging stations, providing a reliable solution. The Stat-X system serves as an efficient standalone fire suppression unit, triggered by a preset temperature. Alternatively, it can be integrated into a total-flooding system, activating in response to a fire detection system or the presence of combustion byproducts.

With its rapid response, the Stat-X system effectively suppresses fires in their early stages, minimizing damage and preventing uncontrolled spread. In enclosed spaces, the agent remains suspended for up to twenty minutes, reducing the risk of reflash. Importantly, the discharge of a Stat-X unit results in minimal cleanup, offering a seamless and effective solution for fire safety in EV charging stations.
