About this book

Author Graham Kenyon & Martin Cotterell ISBN 9781785612787
Format A4 paperback Price £60

This Code of Practice is an excellent reference for practitioners for the safe, effective and competent application of electrical energy storage systems. It provides detailed information on the specification, design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of an energy storage system.

The scope covers all types of electrical and electrochemical energy storage systems; integration into low voltage power systems; industrial, commercial and domestic applications and systems aligned with existing standards, regulations and guidance.

  • The Code is a very important tool in better equipping the industry to roll out energy storage installations. It will enable better connection of innovative storage devices and provide consumer safety and greater peace of mind.  – Frank Gordon, Policy Manager, REA
  • The Code is key to providing consumer and installer confidence in how to install energy storage safely in properties around the UK. It is a landmark document. – Andrew Crossland, Energy Storage & Microgrid Engineer – Solarcentury
