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.
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.
The applicant must complete the Clean Energy Council’s online application form. Please refer to the application requirements checklist for the information required.
You must also review the Clean Energy Council’s Listing Terms and Conditions and complete the declarations on the application form.
Applications will be delayed if incomplete or incorrect information is supplied.
As part of the application, you must pay the application fee. Applications will not be assessed until the Clean Energy Council has received payment of this fee.
