Here at AlliedFireAndSecurity we focus on helping our customers maintain and improve their safety and security awareness. At some point you might sit back and say “I have secured all the essential aspects of my home or business.” Just when you thought you knew every aspect of security… here comes a whole new category of security concerns: “Alternative Energy Devices.”
There has been a resurgence in the last several years in the U.S. of electric and hybrid electric vehicles, and an increase in the use of other alternative energy sources including photovoltaics and smart grid technology. The successful integration of these new vehicles and other emerging alternative energy technology into the nation’s electrical safety infrastructure depends on the safe implementation, charging and storage of these energy sources and the maintenance of support equipment like charging stations.
Fortunately, the National Fire Protection Association and the Fire Protection Research Foundation have convened a symposium on December 6th 2011 to address some of these new safety concerns. This symposium will address the safety concerns surround the charging, storage, and transportation of new alternative energy technologies. Our experts here at AlliedFireAndSecurity will track and research the results of this symposium and keep you up-to-date on the safety standards and recommendations produced by this group.
