To become endorsed to install grid-connected battery storage, accreditation must also be held for the design and install of grid-connected (GC) photovoltaic systems.

To apply for the Clean Energy Council Storage endorsement, an individual must complete the additional training modules on grid-connected battery storage design and installation.

The draft training codes for these units are

  • UEERE4002A Install, maintain and fault find battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic systems 
  • UEERE5001A Design battery storage systems for grid-connected photovoltaic systems

Adding the storage endorsement to your current grid-connect PV accreditation?

You can apply to add the storage endorsement to your current accreditation at no cost.

To do this, please send a copy of your training results to accreditation@cleanenergycouncil.org.au

You will then be required to submit a case study within three months. 

A fee of $190 (excluding GST) applies for case study assessment.

Please Note: The grid-connected battery storage training and endorsement will not qualify you to design and install off grid/stand-alone power systems (SPS). The full SPS training is required for this.

CEC battery installation guidelines

The CEC has created guidelines to assist installers with grid-connect battery storage systems. Accredited installers are required to follow these guidelines:
