International energy consortium to build world’s largest RE hub

An international consortium of InterContinental Energy, CWP Global, and Mirning Green Energy Limited will be building the Western Green Energy Hub (WGEH).

WGEH is an integrated green fuels mega project in the south-east of Western Australia. It will be the world’s biggest renewable energy (RE) hub, that could produce up to 50 GW of hybrid wind and solar power over 15,000 square kilometres, across the Shires of Dundas and the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. The estimated cost of the project is $100 billion. The location of the hub provides an optimal diurnal profile for RE, with consistently high levels of wind and solar energy over the whole day. It will produce up to 3.5 million tons of zero-carbon green hydrogen or 20 million tons of green ammonia per year, which will be provided domestically and exported as the green fuels market continues to expand post-2030.
