Recommended Practice for the Design and Construction of Prefabricated and Modular Outdoor Battery Enclosures

This recommended practice covers the design and construction of prefabricated and modular enclosures for diverse environments, both indoors and outdoors. These enclosures house batteries and related equipment that may include chargers, inverters, distribution panels, protective devices, and ancillary systems. This document covers functional requirements for enclosures for all battery technologies and all stationary applications. Recommendations are included for ventilation, thermal management, spill containment, and fire suppression, as appropriate. Those recommendations apply also to battery compartments in electronic equipment cabinets for applications such as telecommunications and power generation, transmission, and distribution, but the design of such cabinets and enclosures is beyond the scope of this document. While all battery enclosures are transportable, mobile (wheeled) units are not covered.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.


No Inactive-Reserved Standards
