  • grow Australia’s renewables technologies industry and establish Australia as a leader in renewables technologies by:
  • increasing the development and adoption of renewable technologies and processes across Australian industries and firms;
  • increasing domestic demand for renewable technologies;
  • increasing Australia’s competitiveness in international renewable technologies markets;
  • upskilling workers to service the renewable technologies industry;
  • uplifting capabilities of businesses to overcome battery regulatory barriers; and
  • developing domestic end-to-end battery and other renewables supply chains.
