Australian Battery Performance Standard

Australia has one of the highest proportions of households with PV solar systems installed in the world. With relatively high retail electricity prices, comparatively low feed-in tariff rates for exported PV energy generation and the rapid reduction in energy storage costs, the market for behind-the-meter battery systems has the potential to increase dramatically.

Two critical aspects of battery systems are safety and performance. At present, there is limited information available to allow end-users to make informed choices regarding the performance of battery systems. In this presentation, the speaker discussed about the aforementioned issues.
