ASME to Undertake Development of Safety Standards for Thermal Energy Storage Systems

Aug 13, 2015

At is June 2015, the ASME Council on Standards and Certification approved the creation of a new Standards Committee on Safety Standards for Thermal Energy Storage Systems (TES). The TES Standards Committee, which will report to the Board on Safety Codes and Standards, is envisioned to develop and maintain safety guidelines and standards covering the design, construction, testing, maintenance, and operation of thermal energy storage systems for the life cycle of the equipment. The proposed initial standard to be developed will provide requirements and recommendations to address the process safety considerations for Nitrate Molten Salt systems of concentrated solar power plants.

ASME is currently soliciting subject matter experts and affected stakeholders to help support these efforts.
