ITP was commissioned by the Department of the Environment and Energy to inspect solar PV and battery energy storage systems installed through the Australian Government’s Solar Communities Grants program. This program assisted non-profit community organisations across Australia to install small-scale energy systems. ITP developed a checklist for inspections of systems with storage based on AS/NZS 5139:2019, and completed an initial round of 27 storage inspections and 118 PV inspections in 2019 and is in the process of completing a second inspection round.
