DNV GL, Deakin University, the CSIRO, and the Smart Energy Council have come together to collaborate on a two-year project to develop a new performance standard for distributed energy storage systems. The work behind the proposed Australian Battery Performance Standard is being funded $1.9 million from ARENA and the Victoria state government.
Storage systems under 200kWh/100kW in Australia will likely be subject to a new standards regime. A project was announced today that will see a new standard formulated by a collaboration between energy consultancy and testing group DNV GL, the CSIRO and Victoria’s Deakin University.
The Smart Energy Council has joined the consortium to provide access and input from industry participants and to chair its Stakeholder Reference Group.
The project aims to develop Australian battery storage performance standards, by carrying out testing of battery systems, and to carry out an analysis of existing standards in place internationally.
