The evaluation of the individual installation locations was analyzed and compared using various criteria with regard to their fire protection effectiveness, feasibility and cost-effectiveness.
Through expert interviews and a sound literature analysis, it was possible to determine that the same requirements apply to the design of the fire protection system for a Second Life storage system as for First Life battery storage systems. The general fire protection requirements for the installation site depend on a variety of factors. These should be included in the planning of the storage unit at an early stage to guarantee reliable implementation. Overall, it was found that all possible installation locations have certain advantages and disadvantages that need to be weighed up for the respective application.
