In January 2020, MCS launched its new standard for battery energy storage, MIS 3012.
The new standard, completed with the assistance of our Managing Director, Graham Kenyon, as technical author, outlines the requirements for battery storage systems that MCS certified installers will use to design, supply and install electrical energy (battery) storage systems.
Read more about the launch on the MCS website.
The standard may be downloaded from the MCS Standards and Tools Library.

Many electrical installations now incorporate new technologies, including embedded generation and home or building automation systems. As use of these technologies becomes more widespread, we need to be ever mindful that control of power to a circuit no longer relies on simple human switching operations. Electrical energy storage technologies that are capable of operating in island mode, continue to provide power when the grid is isolated.
Some incidents that have occurred recently when implementing energy storage systems outside the UK prompted Dr Andrew Crossland and myself to write an article for IET’s Wiring Matters. The article highlights the risks, and discusses safe isolation.
Further guidance on electrical energy storage systems can be found in the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems.
