    The objective of this workshop is to impart knowledge about statistical evaluation of cylinder test data and their interpretation with respect to safety assessment. Essentials, which will be introduced and elaborated, are:

    - Influence of test parameters on test results including scatter from non-controlled test parameters

    - basics about degradation investigated by cycle and burst testing

    - basics of statistics and its use in evaluation of test data

    - basics of safety assessment by using statistics.

    Future energy systems will be forced to become increasingly flexible in order to cope with the challenges derived from the high penetration of renewable energy sources. Therefore, policy makers need to consider issues such as the effects of intermittent energy sources on the reliability and adequacy of the energy system, the impacts of rules governing the curtailment or storage of energy, or how much backup dispatchable capacity may be required to guarantee that energy demand is safely met.
