Another Aussie Green Hydrogen Hub In The Works As Total Eren Eyes 1GW Darwin Project

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Recharge.

These two paragraphs introduce the project.

Developer Total Eren is sizing up the potential for a 1GW green hydrogen project in Australia’s Northern Territory (NT), taking the total capacity of green H2 projects under development in the state to 13.8GW.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), signed between Total Eren and the NT state government on Monday, will see the two work together to progress the project, dubbed the Darwin H2 Hub.

This paragraph gives a few numbers.

Plans for the scheme comprise more than 2GW of solar PV generation, which will power a 1GW electrolyser. The project aims to produce 80,000 tonnes of hydrogen a year, equivalent to around 4% of the 1.96 million tonnes of green H2 South Korea expects to import from overseas by 2030.

Note.

  1. Australia seems to be the place to develop large hydrogen and energy projects.
  2. South Korea will beat a path to your door, if you have the capacity to create millions of tonnes of green hydrogen.

The article finishes with a good summary of the future prospects of Australia’s green hydrogen industry.

I believe that Australia could become a world superpower, as it will certainly provide zero-carbon power to a good proportion of South East Asia.
