Edify receives approval for a 1 GW green H2 project in Australia

Last Updated on 08th January 2024

Edify Energy Pty Ltd, based in Australia, has received development approval for a green hydrogen generation plant with a capacity of up to 1 GW in the Lansdown Eco-Industrial Precinct in Townsville, Queensland.


A behind-the-meter solar photovoltaic (PV) and battery storage facility is also planned. Edify plans to start with a 10-MW green hydrogen pilot and gradually expand capacity to meet domestic and export demand.


The Townsville City Council has granted the first development application for property in the precinct, which is envisioned as a center for modern industry. Queensland Pacific Minerals, which seeks to create battery-grade nickel and cobalt sulfate, and Imperium3 Townsville (iM3TSV), which plans to develop an 18-GWh lithium-ion battery cell factory, are two additional companies that have signed up to join the district, according to the City Council.


“The eco-industrial precinct not only supports the use of natural mineral resources for advanced manufacturing and production but also the use of renewable energy from the approved and co-located Majors Creek Solar Power Station, utilizing advanced grid friendly technology and storage to dispatch renewable energy when it is most needed,’’ said Edify Energy CEO John Cole.


“Electricity from renewable sources is an essential part of green hydrogen production and the decarbonizing of advanced manufacturing in Australia,” Cole noted.


Edify claims that their large-scale green hydrogen project is one of the first to receive planning approval in Queensland.
