Have your say on battery storage standards

The Standards Australia draft AS/NZS 5139 Electrical Installations — Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment is now open for public comment. This supersedes the 2017 draft, which received criticism about building and location requirements, with the industry fearing it would mean a ban of on-site lithium-ion battery storage in Australian homes, which Standards Australia denied.

Standards Australia has released the draft for a nine-week public consultation period.

The draft and any incoming comments can be viewed on the Standards Australia website by logging in here upon entering Standards Hub login details. In order to view and comment on the draft, participants must have a Standards Australia Hub user account.

The date for closure of public comments will be Wednesday, 3 April 2019 at 23:59.
