The successful grant recipient Powering Australia Limited will now establish the Powering Australia Industry Growth Centre (PAIGC). 

The PAIGC is a commitment under the Australian Made Battery Plan. It will fund activities and provide services to: 

  • help businesses manufacture renewable energy technologies and commercialise local ideas
  • encourage connections between critical minerals producers and renewable technology manufacturers
  • deliver First Nations advisory services to build First Nations business management capabilities. 

The PAIGC complements other initiatives from our department like the National Reconstruction Fund and Critical Minerals Strategy 2023-30.
