Battery storageProject Testing the Performance of Lithium Ion Batteries
This report describes testing results and general observations or issues encountered thus far with both the Phase 1 and 2 batteries.
ITP Renewables (ITP) is testing the performance of residential and commercial scale battery packs in a purpose-built, climate-controlled enclosure at the Canberra Institute of Technology. Eight batteries were installed initially, and a further ten installed in a second phase. This is the seventh public six-monthly report.
While some battery packs have experienced faults and/or failed prematurely, the Sony, Samsung, Tesla Powerwall 1 (Phase 1), BYD, Pylontech, and GNB Lithium (Phase 2) battery packs have generally demonstrated high reliability, with minimal issues encountered throughout the testing period.
