National Battery Strategy – have your say

Feedback is sought on boosting 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 within 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.

The consultation closes at 11:59 pm AEDT on 3 March 2023.
