Closing date extended

The closing date for this consultation has been extended from Friday 3 March to Friday 17 March. 

We are seeking feedback on how we can boost Australia’s battery industries.

Batteries are essential as the world transitions to renewable energy and Australia achieves net zero emissions by 2050. Australia is a major producer of raw battery materials, but most battery manufacturing currently occurs overseas.

The Australian Government is committed to supporting battery industries in Australia. Your feedback will help shape Australia’s future battery industries and inform initiatives including:

  • Australia’s first National Battery Strategy
  • an Australian Made Battery Precinct in Queensland
  • a Powering Australia Industry Growth Centre.

Read the issues paper and have your say on our consultation hub.

The consultation closes at 11:59 pm AEDT on 17 March 2023.
