Looks great so far, its going to be a lovely facility.
Yes the insulation will be touching the side walls. Problem being that batteries rack is bolted to the floor and the batteries are very heavy to move at 70kgs each. It is a bit of an oversight but there are solutions to the problem.

Regarding the heat the batteries give off I will construct the box to be about half the size of the container, allowing room for expansion with another power station later when we build another shed.
