PRESENTATION:  Flammable Refrigerants & Energy Storage

The refrigerants industry is attempting to move to natural compounds to reduce damage to the atmosphere. Propane, methane, etc., pose their own challenges, i.e., they can be flammable, heavier than air, explosive, toxic (pre- and post-fire, e.g. HF, COF2), potentially cause frostbite, etc. The applicable ICC codes and referenced standards (e.g., UL, NFPA, ASHRAE) will be identified. IMC and IFC refrigerant classification and the corresponding code requirements will be reviewed. As more and larger energy storage systems are being installed, the industry and first responders are beginning to encounter issues with stranded energy when these systems fail. Recent case studies will be reviewed, RE: how the systems reacted when first responders intervened, and how code requirements can help.

SPEAKER: Andrew Klock (Emerging Issues Lead Manager | NFPA)
