Zero Energy State

All energy within the system has been reduced to the lowest possible energy level, at “zero energy level” if possible. All stored or residual energy, such as within capacitors, springs, elevated devices, rotating flywheels, hydraulic systems, pneumatic systems, have been dissipated.

It should be noted that it is not possible to dissipate / de-energize all energy within the system additional controls should be implemented, i.e. lockout, repositioning, isolating, restraining, guarding, shielding, relief, bleed off devices.
