DNV GL has created a testing-based verification system for Lithium-ion batteries called Battery XT.

The independent verification tool compiles battery life cycle data and predicts battery degradation under different conditions and duty cycles.

It provides renewables stakeholders third-party testing and verification to compare the value and reliability of types and brands of energy storage technology, DNV GL said.

DNV GL energy storage leader Davion Hill said: “As energy storage deployment reaches the gigawatt scale, the market is still challenged to overcome the self-certification approaches of the past.

“We have built the world’s only independently created database of Li-on battery performance to help the market deploy faster.”
