What is being billed as the world’s largest renewable energy hub is being planned for the southern coast of the state of Western Australia, as the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has reported. Built across 15,000 square kilometres in a largely uninhabited area of the country, the Western Green Energy Hub would produce 3.5 million tonnes of green hydrogen or 20 million tonnes of green ammonia per year, for both domestic consumption and export. The project is a joint venture between Intercontinental Energy, CWP Global, and Mirning Green Energy Limited (a corporation under the ownership of the local indigenous Mirning people), and would be powered by both solar and wind energy, the area being well-suited to their production. No further details are available at this stage.
