Battery & Energy Storage

Overview

Give your battery and energy storage products a simple, efficient path to new markets

Did You Know?

  • According to a market report by Arthur D. Little (ADL), the battery market is expected to become a (USD) $90+ billion sector by 2025, and that new innovations, such as solid-state electrolyte lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, will eventually replace existing battery technologies.
  • Although lead acid batteries were the dominant form of rechargeable batteries, Mordor Intelligence predicts the Li- ion market is likely to be higher than Lead-acid from 2020 onwards, driven predominantly by the automotive & industrial sectors.

Testing to Your Needs

CSA Group will evaluate or test your projects including cells, packs, appliances and tools, e-mobility devices, and energy storage systems at our state-of-the-art laboratories. We can also conduct an evaluation in the field or at a manufacturing location if required. As a trusted expert, we provide the knowledge and services you need about standards and conformity assessment.

Market Access

CSA Group can get you to new markets with efficiency, accuracy and expertise. We perform the evaluation, testing and certification, and standards solutions your battery and energy storage products require, leveraging our IECEE CB Scheme accreditation (which allows you to access up to 70 countries) and CSA Group’s international certification team to get you to new markets quickly. Our key services include Certification for North American Markets and Certification for Global Markets.
