Fire Hazards of Electric Vehicles (EV) Located within Buildings | Webinar

Zoom Webinar

About this Event Thursday 29 February 2024

We recognise the dynamic landscape surrounding electric vehicles, especially when integrated into existing buildings and the resultant fire risks that this brings. Following the success of recent presentations at various state chapter conferences, AIBS is pleased to once again host Matt Booth, Senior Fire Safety Consultant at Warringtonfire, to delve into their recent research on this crucial subject.

This session aims to explore the inherent risks associated with electric vehicles and, more significantly, charging stations within pre-existing buildings. Recent notable fire incidents involving mobile phones, hoverboards, a three-day fire in Victoria, and recalls of electric bus fleets underscore the immediate and tangible risks that Building Surveyors should be mindful of.
Considering the projected one million EVs expected on New South Wales roads by 2030, these risks will intensify over time as EV adoption increases nationally. The discussion will encompass critical aspects such as the correlation between fire occurrences and charging stations, fundamental knowledge about EVs, including lithium-ion batteries, thermal runaway, and the potential dangers associated with toxic vapor cloud emissions and their explosion risks.

For those who have attended conferences on EVs, this serves as an excellent opportunity to refresh your understanding of the genuine risks. As building surveyors, it is imperative to grasp these considerations when approving EV charging stations within buildings.
