Future Battery Industry Strategy

The rapid uptake of electric vehicles and battery-based energy storage systems across the world is driving global demand for lithium-ion batteries. Electric vehicle and battery manufacturers are securing sources of minerals, materials and components to meet this increase in demand representing a significant opportunity for the State.

Funding Assistance Register

This Funding Assistance Register has been developed to aid current and potential future battery industry proponents to identify relevant, existing State or Commonwealth Government funding programs and/or assistance for their projects.


On 24 May 2018, the State Government announced the establishment of a Ministerial Taskforce to capitalise on the State’s potential to produce and process future battery minerals to support industry growth.
