Construction starts Aug 2021. Commissioning Dec 2021
Preserve our pristine regions by exploring renewable energy.
Traditionally, remote communities are powered by diesel-generated microgrids. With this project, we’re testing if renewable hydrogen energy can be used to produce baseload power. The power supply for the hydrogen demonstration plant will come from a dedicated solar farm, with the plant expected to generate 526MWh per year, enough power for up to 100 homes.
This project will benefit all regional communities as we research and test the most effective way to move towards 100% renewable energy systems.
We’ve secured funding from ARENA and the WA State Government, including the WA Renewable Hydrogen Fund, to build a renewable hydrogen demonstration plant in Denham.
We’ve awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to Hybrid Systems Australia.
We’ll be hosting a community engagement session on
25 February 2021 at the Shark Bay Bowling, Sport & Recreation Club, to provide the local community with an opportunity to hear more about the project and ask questions.
