The Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre is enabling the growth of battery industries to power Australia’s future. We bring together industry, researchers, governments and the community to ensure Australia plays a leading role in the global battery revolution.
Our work is critical in making our industries more competitive by harnessing the research skills and industry expertise required to create new economic opportunities.
Battery industries for tomorrow
FBICRC is an independent centre where industry, government and researchers can come together to create the tools, technologies and skills to grow the role of battery storage in Australia’s electricity grids, and make Australia a larger player in global battery value chains.
Australian minerals are critical to the global battery technology revolution. Our resources, thinking, innovation and expertise will enable us to seize this once in a generation, national opportunity to develop the next wave of battery industries.
