Testing and certification for PV storage systems | TÜV Rheinland

We provide comprehensive energy storage system testing

Our approach to PV energy storage testing and certification begins at the earliest stages of development and continues throughout production. The process involves:

  • Review of documents for completeness and plausibility
  • Testing based on existing standards
  • Preparation of test reports
  • Factory inspection
  • Certification

For the certification of stationary local battery energy storage systems, we take into account the following standards:

  • UN 38.3: Safety requirements for the transport of lithium batteries
  • IEC 62619: Secondary cells and batteries containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolytes - Safety requirements for secondary lithium cells and batteries
  • EN 50272-2: Safety requirements for secondary batteries and battery installations
  • VDE AR 2510-50 for energy storage system with lithium batteries
  • BATSO 02 2014: Manual of Evaluation of energy system

Moreover, we are offering the following additional tests:

  • Inverter testing for safety and grid conformity according to EN 62109-1/2, VDE-AR N 4105 and VDE 0124-100 and other standards.
  • UN 38.3. Safety requirements for the transport of lithium batteries
  • Individual tests (e.g. vibration, shock, climate, IP protection, EMC and electrical safety)
  • Support and development assistance from the design stage onward
