Standards Australia has held a roundtable with industry groups regarding the proposed requirement under AS/NZS 5139 that would require batteries to be installed away from properties. Kingfisher Law, along with other industry groups, suggested that the standards would be overly restrictive, costly and be a disincentive for the installation of residential battery storage and by extension solar uptake. The roundtable, whilst acknowledging the need for standards, stressed that the imposition of the stand-alone storage standard would not benefit the industry overall. The conclusion of the roundtable saw the AS/NZS 5139 up for review, a second draft to be released for public comment.
