»Standards Australia appears to have delayed the release of guidelines on the installation of battery storage devices in homes, after receiving a barrage of criticism over proposals that the industry feared would amount to an effective ban on lithium-ion battery storage devices inside homes,« says Australian renewable power portal »Renew Economy«. On Monday the portal has reported, lithium-ion battery storage devices may be banned by Standards Australia from being installed inside homes and garages in Australia and such storage systems »should only be installed in free standing kiosks or effectively a bunker.«
On Tuesday, Standards Australia refused »speculation regarding on-site battery storage in Australian homes«. The organization is not developing standards that will ban the introduction of such storage systems. Furthermore, »the use of all Australian Standards is voluntary« and guidelines did not have to be adopted by governments.
