Developing a strategy for the battery industry in Queensland

The world’s transition to a low-carbon future is underway. Global economies are rapidly transforming to make way for a new era focused on electrified transport and renewable energy generation.

This shift brings with it a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Queensland to become a driving force in the development, manufacture and deployment of new energy storage technologies—providing opportunities to accelerate industry growth and deliver the highly skilled jobs of the future.

To seize these opportunities, we’re developing a multi-technology battery strategy that builds on our critical minerals and mining expertise. It uses our competitive advantages to further develop capabilities in refining, production of advanced battery materials, cell manufacture, pack assembly, installation and recycling.

The Queensland Battery Industry Strategy will help deliver the Australian Government’s investment of up to $100 million in an Australian-Made Battery Precinct in Queensland, as well as support Queensland’s energy transition via the Queensland Government’s $62 billion Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan. We’re leading the strategy in partnership with the Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water.

Have your say

You’re invited to contribute to the development of the Queensland Battery Industry Strategy by having your say on the Battery Industry Opportunities for Queensland discussion paper.

Consultation on the discussion paper will run until 5pm 31 March 2023.
