Battery Rooms (Lead Acid/Lithium Ion) Fire Suppression

Lead-acid batteries are devices that store incredible amounts of energy in chemical form. Battery energy storage facilities, in-building or containerized, are a new and emerging development in power generation and distribution. Battery storage systems take the off-peak energy and stores it for peak time when more energy use is in demand. Energy storage systems work by charging and discharging batteries.

The Fire Risk

Hazards in these enclosures are:

  1. Lack of ventilation
  2. Overcharge condition can generate hydrogen which is highly flammable

This is a typical layout of the electrical system including detection, controls, and strategically placed Stat-X electrical generators in a lithium-ion battery container.

NFPA 855 Standard for the Installation of Energy Storage Systems is a new National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard that was recently developed and published to define the design, construction, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning of stationary energy storage systems including traditional battery systems such as those used by utilities.
