Australia has one of the highest proportions of household solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in the world. However, adoption of small-scale energy storage to support these domestic PV systems has not yet reached the same scale. The market for behind-the-meter battery storage applications in Australia (and around the world) is currently being held back, in part, by the difficulty end-customers face in choosing the right battery system for their needs. Different manufacturers report their product specifications in different ways, making it almost impossible for the average end user to compare them.
To address this part of the issue, a consortium including DNV GL, CSIRO, Deakin University and the Smart Energy Council has undertaken to develop a draft Australian Battery Performance Standard (ABPS). Co-funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) and the Victoria State Government, the project is defining standardized performance testing protocols and metric reporting methods. This new Standard will make it easier for people to understand how reliable batteries are and how they will perform over their lifetime in Australian conditions.
During this breakfast seminar, DNV GL experts will be sharing a preview of the the Australian Draft Battery Performance Standard, and other energy storage topics tailored to Australian conditions.
Detailed agenda to be announced soon.
