Organization: UL
Publication Date: 2 November 2017
Status: inactive
Page Count: 38
scope:

The requirements in this document evaluate the fire characteristics of a battery energy storage system that undergoes thermal runaway. The data generated will be used to determine the fire and explosion protection required for an installation of a battery energy storage system.

These requirements apply to Battery Energy Storage Systems intended for installation, operation and maintenance in accordance with the International Fire Code (IFC), the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, other energy storage system codes, and the manufacturer's installation instructions.

The criteria established within this document is designed to meet the objectives of the International Fire Code (IFC), the Fire Code, NFPA 1, and other energy storage system codes relative to fire propagation hazards and fire mitigation methods from a single battery energy storage system unit.
