Standards Australia have responded to feedback on its draft standard for inverter-connected batteries.

When Standards Australia published its draft standard for inverter-connected batteries, many commentators said it was too tough and unworkable.

The standard would result in installation requirements that were likely appropriate for many types of lithium-based batteries that represent a significant fire risk, but unnecessary for those that do not. It also failed to account for design elements of all-in-one battery systems that mitigate against fire hazards.

In response feedback received, Standards Australia will:

  • Continue working towards a final version of the standard
  • Redraft the section on placement and location of batteries, with reference to relevant standards, and publish a second draft for further consultation
  • Fast track adoption in Australia of relevant international standards
