    Fire Safety of Electric Vehicles

    The demand for electric vehicles (EVs) continues to increase around the world. They have proven to reduce emissions and operate more efficiently than vehicles driven by fossil-fuels. In part this is made possible due to significant technological advances in energy storage systems, specifically those that are part of the lithium-ion family. Their unmatched properties such as high cycle life, high energy density, and high efficiency makes them suitable for automotive applications. As more lithium-ion battery (LIB) powered road vehicles become operational across the globe, their involvement in traffic accidents is likely to rise. There is a chance, as in conventionally fueled vehicles, that the on-board energy storage system becomes a risk to the safety of those involved in, or responding to, accidents.
