BookNet Canada: Print Sales Down in 2017, Backlist 60 Percent
BookNet Canada is reporting that print book sales in the Canadian trade market fell 3 percent in value and 4 percent in unit sales, in year-over-year comparisons to 2016.
And in an interesting note regarding the children’s sector, while juvenile books accounted for 40 percent of all sales in 2017, the five bestselling titles of the year were adult books.

Based on unit sales in BNC SalesData, which tracks 85 percent of the print market in Canada, the BookNet staff writes, the top seller of the year was the trade paperback edition of the self-help book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson.

An Essential Guide to Safety Evaluation for Grid-Connected Energy Storage in North America
The arrival of Energy Storage Systems (ESS) is helping solve a long-standing problem in the power sector—decoupling generation from consumption of electricity. System operators need the flexibility to store energy and dispatch it when required, and ESS can enable that. ESS also helps communities reap the benefits of clean power and make the grid more resilient by providing reliable back-up power during outages. These advantages are why ESS are among the fastest growing electrical power system products, but as a relatively new technology, it is critical that steps be taken to ensure safety is embedded into the design, testing, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning of these systems.


RISKS TO MITIGATE

While battery-based ESS is a proven and attractive technology, it can present safety hazards by itself or in association with other complex electrical systems. These include fire, explosion, leakage of electrolytes, venting of combustible and toxic gasses, burns from excessive temperature, as well as the potential for electrical shock and arc flash. Pressure, noise, moving parts, and sharp edges can pose mechanical risks. Toxic or hazardous substances are sources of risks related to chemical exposure, and unsafe chemical concentrations can present physical injury, explosion, and fire hazards.

A thorough understanding of ESS safety requirements and proper application is essential to help ensure risks are effectively identified and addressed to meet safety requirements.
