With so much interest in home battery storage – particularly after recent blackouts in South Australia and Victoria due to wild weather – a Clean Energy Council workshop in Sydney next week is a timely event to help get you up to speed with the latest on the transport, recycling and warehousing of lithium-ion batteries.

Whether you’re a solar installer, a government policymaker, a safety regulator or an industry professional, home energy storage is a technology with huge implications for the way everyone uses electricity.

Clean Energy Council Technical and Compliance Specialist Luke Pickles said home energy storage is a perfect complement to renewable energy – whether that’s the kind people generate themselves from their solar panels or larger-scale storage attached to a wind or solar farm.

“The industry is currently thinking very carefully about all aspects of home battery storage, from transport and installation through to ongoing servicing and recycling,” Mr Pickles said.

“Home battery storage is an exciting technology of the future, but these systems are not risk-free. it’s extremely important that these systems are transported, stored and installed correctly. Safety is paramount for industry professionals and consumers, and this event will help you get a better understanding of what best practice is and how you can make it part of your business.”

The event, which is supported by the Australian Battery Recycling Initiative, will consist of a half-day workshop, followed by a half-day training course on the transportation of lithium batteries. More information on the program and how to register can be found on the Clean Energy Council website.
