BP looks to renewables to drive hydrogen play


Oil and gas giant BP is looking to  build 1.5 gigawatts of new wind and solar capacity in Western Australia if it goes ahead with a full commercial project to build a renewable hydrogen production facility in that state, with an eye to the export market.

Renew Economy is reporting that BP is turning to its 50-50 joint venture Lightsource BP to canvass the large scale wind and solar options in the area around Geraldton, north of Perth, which would represent something like a three fold increase in the amount of renewable energy capacity already in the state.

The scale of the project underlines the massive opportunities that could be presented by the renewable hydrogen industry, which will look to draw on Australia’s magnificent wind and solar resources and use them to create zero emissions export fuels, such as hydrogen or ammonia, or for use to support a revitalised domestic manufacturing industry.
