As with any other grid-connected asset and large financial investment, it is important to understand how battery energy storage systems (BESS) work, what the potential failure mechanisms are, the expected frequency of those failures, and any mitigative or corrective actions that can help to prolong asset life.  This paper presents an overview of typical failure mechanisms of lithium ion batteries and presents a case study demonstrating how operational changes to a BESS can impact asset life.
