Hydrogen Renewables Australia (HRA) has proposed building up to 5 gigawatts (GWac) of wind and photovoltaic (PV) infrastructure on a site in Western Australia, bringing the total proposed pipeline of renewable export projects in Australia to 30 GWac, enough to power 21 million homes. The Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project would use solar and wind power to generate “green hydrogen”, where electrolysis is used to separate hydrogen from water.
