Battery start A320

Recently operated an aircraft that had the APU GEN U/S. Air Bleed OK.

We wondered if we would be able to start the engines without having a GPU available and the only electrics being the battery until an engine generator cut in?

Alternatively could we do the engine start with batteries and an air start unit?

My previous type (757) had a published battery start procedure, we were unable to find any such procedure for the A320.

Any ideas?
