WA to develop hydrogen powerhouse
Western Australia is set to become a global leader in clean energy with the development of a world-class hydrogen and ammonia production facility in Perth.
The facility will be one of the largest of its kind in the world.
Named H2Perth, the Woodside project will produce low-cost clean and renewable energy to meet rapidly growing demand domestically and globally.
The project is a watershed moment for Western Australia, as it takes a lead role in the production of hydrogen energy.
In the not-too-distant future, when you turn on the TV or hit a light switch, it could very well be H2Perth hydrogen powering your home.
Planned for 130 hectares of industrial land in Kwinana, the good news stories for the project are massive. H2Perth is intended to create a diversified new tent pole in the Western Australian economy.
During construction, 2000 jobs will be created. Once up and running, the facility will support 200 local jobs.
The project will drive clean energy use through making hydrogen affordable and accessible, propelling WA and Australia towards 2050 targets.
Further to that, the project will be carbon neutral.
WA Premier Mark McGowan said the project was an example of the type of renewable energy projects he wants brought to Western Australia.
“Making hydrogen more affordable will accelerate the uptake of clean energy, and help our State move towards a renewable energy future and net zero by 2050.
“This project will boost manufacturing in the south metropolitan region and create thousands of local jobs within the construction, manufacturing and renewable energy sectors.”
