Checklist provides federal agencies with a standard set of tasks, questions, and reference points to assist in the early stages of battery energy storage systems (BESS) project development. The checklist items contained within are intended for use in procurement of commercial scale lithium-ion BESS, although they may be used more generally for other BESS technologies.

During the more technical portions of BESS project development, agencies are encouraged to utilize the Federal Energy Management Program's BESS Technical Specifications and Distributed Energy Interconnection Checklist.
