50GW renewable energy development unveiled for Western Australia; plans to produce 3.5 million tonnes of green hydrogen annually

An international consortium has today (July 13) unveiled plans for one of the world’s largest renewable energy projects which could see the production of 3.5 million tonnes of renewable hydrogen or 20 million tonnes of green ammonia annually.

To be located in Western Australia’s Goldfields-Esperance region, and dubbed the Western Green Energy Hub (WGEH), the project could produce up to 50GW of hybrid wind and solar power over 15,000-square kilometres.

InterContinental Energy, CWP Global and Mirning Green Energy Limited have joined forces on the mega-project which is said to be developed in phases to produce the hydrogen that will be provided domestically and exported internationally.

Already supported by the McGowan Government, it is believed the project will deliver significant socio-economic benefits to the local community, as well as a huge boost to the Western Australia State Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Strategy and the Commonwealth Government of Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy.
