Post Incident Forensics & Investigations

October 25, 2019


As the energy capacity of new batteries increases, the risk of battery fires and explosions also increases. Although battery safety incidents are rare, they are a serious cause for concern. When incidents happen, court cases can follow.  It is important to understand what causes these malfunctions so that they can be prevented in the future. Scientific findings from pre- and post-investigations can help determine the cause and guide safety regulations.

Join us at Cambridge EnerTech’s Post-Incident Forensics & Investigations meeting and learn more about the new methods and techniques that are improving post-incident battery forensic analysis.

Who should attend: Government Regulators, Insurance Companies, Post-incident Investigators, Fire-safety Investigators, Battery Chemists & Technologists, Chemical, Mechanical, and Electrical Engineers, Material Scientists, Battery Manufactures, OEMs.
