To apply to have your batteries included on the Clean Energy Council Approved Products List, ensure that your products meet the requirements and that you complete the following process.
Lithium-based battery system (BS) and battery energy storage system (BESS) products can be included on the Approved Products List. These products are assessed using the first three methods outlined in the Battery Safety Guide.
Listing requirements for each of the three methods can be found in the associated application checklists:
Method 4 is excluded as it allows for non-specific selection of standards as identified by use of matrix to address known risks and apply defined compliance criteria.
Details of certified laboratories can be found on the IEC website. The Clean Energy Council will accept certification from both IEC and JAS-ANZ-accredited certifying bodies.
The Clean Energy Council requires manufacturers to nominate the importers who are responsible for meeting the manufacturer warranty obligations in Australia.
Importers must be a legally identifiable Australian or New Zealand entity, holding an Australian Business Number (ABN) or a New Zealand Inland Revenue Department (IRD) number.
The following documents must be submitted with your application.
Battery system (BS) – the energy capacity (DC kWh) of the battery system at beginning of life, at the maximum recommended depth of discharge, 25°C ambient temperature, measured at a 0.1C or greater charge/discharge power.
Pre-assembled integrated battery energy storage system (BESS) – the energy capacity (kWh) of the BESS at beginning of life, at the maximum recommended depth of discharge, 25°C ambient temperature, measured at a 0.1C or greater charge/discharge power.
Once you have provided all the relevant information by submitting the online application form we will contact you to pay the application fee. Applications will not be assessed until the Clean Energy Council has received payment of this fee.
