BHP signs renewable PPA with CleanCo for its Queensland coal mines

Australian global mining giant BHP has signed a renewable power purchase agreement (PPA) with CleanCo to help cover some of the electricity used across its Queensland (QLD) Coal mines.

BHP inked the PPA, which utilises solar, wind, hydro, and gas, to reduce its Scope 2 emissions from electricity use in QLD by 50 per cent by 2025. The five-year deal with CleanCo, the QLD Government-owned clean energy company, will commence from 2021 and support the development of the Western Downs Green Power Hub and the Karara Wind Farm.
