Original Consultation

1.        Background

The 2020 Budget speech made reference to the introduction of a new support scheme to encourage the use of Battery Storage. The use of battery storage in combination with solar photovoltaic installations is expected to become more common as the battery technology evolves and for this reason it is being proposed that for future solar photovoltaic grant schemes, the inverter system should be of the hybrid type. The introduction of the aforementioned technologies require some changes to the Government Notice GN 52 of 2010 and the Electrical Installations Regulations.
