Western Australia is calling for global expressions of interest to develop a renewable hydrogen hub near Geraldton.
Oakajee Strategic Industrial Area (SIA) is recognised for its world-class wind and solar energy potential, which is ideal for the production of renewable hydrogen for commercial uses including advanced manufacturing, energy storage and transport, and for future export of clean energy.
