DNV-RP-0043 Safety, operation and performance of grid-connected energy storage systems - Revised

Recommended practice

Edition 2017-09 - Amended 2021-10

The objective of this recommended practice (RP) is to provide a comprehensive set of recommendations for grid-connected energy storage systems. It aims to be valid in all major markets and geographic regions, for all applications, on all levels from component to system, covering the entire life cycle. End users, operators and other stakeholders will be able to take this RP as their single all-encompassing document for such systems, providing them with direct guidance or referencing through other guidelines and standards. 

The RP focuses on three main aspects of grid-connected energy storage: safety, operation and performance. These aspects are assessed for electricity storage systems in general, i.e. a technology agnostic approach).
Furthermore, recommendations applying only to specific energy storage technologies are provided wherever necessary.
