Director, Energy Storage Testing

In an emerging and rapidly developing field like energy storage, testing is vital to maximize value and minimize risk. DNV has an unrivaled global track record in testing and certification across the energy and renewables sector. That heritage extends to testing batteries and energy storage systems as well. For example, the Battery and Energy Storage Technology (BEST) Test & Commercialization Center (BEST Test Center) in Rochester, New York, has conducted over 7.5 million hours of battery cycle testing. 
BEST Test Center
The BEST Test Center provides an extensive range of testing services covering performance and safety for batteries, controllers, and complete energy storage systems (ESS). Our experts test on a wide range of applications and scales, including batteries for large utility-scale energy storage systems, small residential and commercial “behind-the-meter” applications (like residential storage systems and microgrids), electric vehicles (EVs), construction and material handling machines, as well as batteries for consumer goods and medical use. We also test across the range of chemistries and technologically maturity, ranging from new development or prototype cells, to cells that are mass produced and deployed in the millions.
