855: Standard for the Installation of Stationary Energy Storage Systems


The new NFPA 855 is your resource for meeting the challenges of safeguarding the installation of modern energy storage systems (ESS).

The use of ESS is rapidly multiplying around the world. While these high-energy, small-footprint systems provide clean, low-cost, long-duration sources of energy, they also present significant life safety hazards.

The debut 2020 edition of NFPA 855, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Energy Storage Systems, addresses the dangers of toxic and flammable gases, stranded energy, and increase fire intensity associated with them.

Give first responders and those who design, build, maintain, and inspect facilities the information they need to prepare for ESS safety.

A vital resource for all stakeholders with interests in ESS technologies, NFPA 855 provides insight into mitigating risks and helping to ensure all installations are performed taking into account vital life safety considerations.

The standard offers comprehensive criteria for the fire protection of ESS installations based on the technology used in ESS, the setting where the technology is being installed, the size and separation of ESS installations, and the fire suppression and control systems in place. Additional considerations include ventilation, detection, signage, listings, and emergency operations responding to ESS emergencies.

Get the information you need to help keep stationary energy storage systems safe and compliant.

NFPA 855, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Energy Storage Systems, is essential for designers, engineers, builders, manufacturers, enforcers, responders, and policymakers who play a role in public safety.

Purchase this critical standard to access cutting-edge requirements for the installation of ESS.
