Welcome on board Xtralis
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) is glad to extend a warm welcome to Xtralis who joined EASE in November 2020. Justin McNamara, Business Development Manager, accepted to discuss with us about the expertise of Xtralis on energy storage and expectations from this collaboration with EASE.
EASE: Mr McNamara, thank you very much for accepting this interview. We are very really happy to have Xtralis among our members and we would like to know more about your activities in the sector. Could you summarise the most interesting insights from the work of Xtralis for energy storage?
Mr McNamara: I am really excited for Xtralis to join EASE. Xtralis has always been involved in the safety business, particularly early warning, so to have the opportunity to learn from seasoned energy storage industry professionals and to contribute in the safety arena, specifically for the protection of lithium batteries, is a great opportunity.
Lithium batteries are in an inexorable rise but, sadly, so are the safety risks. Our aim is to learn more and contribute to the overall understanding of these risks and ensure that our unique Li-ion Tamer technology is both understood and widely incorporated. The industry needs to be seen as offering reliable and safety conscious solutions to the wider energy issues – Li-ion Tamer can be an integral part of the solution.
EASE: What is your vision for how storage can contribute to the energy transition?
Mr McNamara: Clearly, one of the most important ways to solve our impending energy issues, is to store more energy. And then if that storage can be made as safe and reliable as humanely possible, society benefits as a whole. Energy storage gains ever more traction in business, the press and social media – keeping it safe and secure will promote the transition much more widely and help achieve the transformations required by governments across the globe much more quickly.
