Rystad Energy: Green hydrogen plans already top 60GWThe global pipeline of utility scale green hydrogen developments – projects with capacities greater than 1 megawatt (MW) – now exceeds 60 gigawatts (GW), with 87% of this capacity coming from gigawatt-scale plants. That’s according to research by Rystad Energy, an independent energy research and business intelligence company, who says proposed green hydrogen projects are surging across the globe, fuelled by post-pandemic green stimulus packages. Green hydrogen developments are hydrogen electrolyser projects powered by renewable sources, and such projects are currently being planned in all continents. Four of these projects will come from Australia: the Asian Renewable Energy Hub, Murchinson Renewable Hydrogen Project, Gladstone Hub and the Pacific Solar Hydrogen. A further $50m (A$70m) from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) will be awarded next year for hydrogen electrolyser projects over 10MW.
