The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in collaboration with the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) is excited to offer its newly updated fire service Energy Storage & Solar Safety Training Classroom Course to the Massachusetts fire service. Recognizing that energy storage and solar systems are rapidly becoming a reality across the United States, NFPA has developed its Energy Storage & Solar Safety Training Program to help the fire service handle the unique challenges presented by these emerging technologies. MassCEC has recently awarded several energy storage projects as part of its Advancing Commonwealth Energy Storage (ACES) program that aims to catalyze the Massachusetts market for increased commercialization and deployment of storage technologies. In line with this effort, MassCEC also seeks to support energy storage safety training for first responders in the Commonwealth in order to enable safe implementation and handling of the ACES program and other energy storage projects.
