BATTERY TECHNOLOGY + ENERGY STORAGE

Powering towards emissions-free electrification

Shaping British Columbia’s emerging battery and energy storage sector

Canada is taking active steps towards being a major player in the global battery sector. This includes driving decarbonization across the entire battery supply chain - from critical mineral mining and refining to battery component manufacturing, energy storage capacity and recycling.

CICE funding for battery technology and energy storage projects

In British Columbia, our vibrant community of innovators, industry leaders, academia, policy makers and Indigenous communities are dedicated to developing sustainable solutions that accelerate the transition to clean energy. CICE grant funding is available for made-in-B.C. battery technology and energy storage solutions linked to:

  • Advanced energy storage systems and grid technology
  • Sustainable accessibility to critical minerals
  • Processing of battery and energy storage-related raw materials
  • New material substitutes
  • Electrode, cell and pack manufacturing
  • Electrification and hybridization of vehicles and vessels
  • Recycling of electric vehicle (EV) battery waste and metals recovery
