AS/NZS 5139:2019 Released
New AS/NZS 5139 Standard Released
On 11 October 2019 Standards Australia released AS/NZS 5139:2019 - Electrical Installations - Safety of battery systems for use with power conversion equipment.
The NEW standard sets out general installation and safety requirements for new Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESSs).
AS/NZS 5139 will become mandatory when AS/NZS 3000 Wiring Rules reference it (expected to be published in the first half of 2020) or when individual jurisdictions choose to amend their regulations. When mandatory the new standard will supersede the CEC’s current Battery Installation Guidelines.
To learn more about the changes, then join us at the Smart Energy Installer Roadshow from 7-21 November 2019 with Glen Morris, from SolarQuip.
