The Hub will generate up to 15,000 MW of renewable energy, up to 3,000 MW of which will be dedicated to large energy users in the Pilbara region, which could include new and expanded mines and downstream mineral processing. The bulk of the power will enable large scale production of green hydrogen products for domestic and export markets, according to the Hub website.
From a 14,000-square kilometre initial land package, 6,500 square kilometres of land in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia were selected to accommodate up to 15,000 MW of wind turbines and solar photovoltaic panels. Outstanding wind and solar resource and large project scale will result in competitively priced renewable energy with a high capacity factor, according to the Hub website.
