This document provides guidance for an objective evaluation of lithium-based energy storage technologies by a potential user for any stationary application. This document is to be used in conjunction with IEEE Std 1679, IEEE Recommended Practice for the Characterization and Evaluation of Emerging Energy Storage Technologies in Stationary Applications. For the purposes of this document, lithium-based batteries include those secondary (rechargeable) electrochemistries with lithium ions as the active species exchanged between the electrodes during charging and discharging. Examples of secondary lithium-based batteries are lithium-ion, lithium-ion polymer, lithium-metal polymer and lithium-sulfur batteries. Primary (non-rechargeable) lithium batteries are beyond the scope of this document. The outline of IEEE Std 1679 is followed in this document, with tutorial information specific to lithium-based batteries provided as appropriate. Examples of tutorial information include technology descriptions, operating parameters, failure modes, safety information, battery architecture, qualification and application considerations. This document does not cover sizing, installation, maintenance and testing techniques, except insofar as they may influence the evaluation of a lithium-based battery for its intended application.
