Hydrogen

CWP is one of the global pioneers of ultra-large-scale green hydrogen hubs. These bold projects of massive scale are the only way to put the world on track to achieving a rapid energy transition.

With 140+ GW now under development, we have the ambition and scale to meaningfully contribute to achieving the temperature limit goals in the Paris Agreement.

Scaling hydrogen

Our mission is to produce some of the cheapest hydrogen available worldwide. We are doing this at ultra large scale, a scale which is necessary to meet the urgent need transition out of fossil fuels.

CWP and its consortium partners commenced work on the first supersized hydrogen project, the Asian Renewable Energy Hub (AREH) in 2015. Situated on more than 6,500 square kilometers in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia, and with an estimated capital cost of US$36 billion, the 26GW hybrid wind and solar power plant will produce 1.8 million tons of green hydrogen (10mtpa of green ammonia) every year at full capacity.

Since then, CWP has begun development on a further seven green hydrogen hubs at similar scale across Africa and South America.

As an independent developer, CWP is agile and focused. The company has moved quickly to identify and develop the world’s best sites for large-scale hydrogen production. Our project pipeline of 140 GW is developing rapidly and when fully operational will be produce in excess of the EU’s entire hydrogen target for 2030.

Projects under development are located in six countries and are designed to make the most of natural resources. We take into consideration the all- important wind and solar resource, land and water availability, proximity to markets, and political stability. CWP is dedicated to creating significant positive, impact on the economic development of host countries and regions – this impact can be truly transformational.

Recognizing the urgency of global decarbonization, we are working to achieve the scale needed to address the monumental problem of dealing with the hard-to-abate sectors with green hydrogen/green ammonia – a solution that is widely lauded but being implemented too slowly. These sectors include heavy industry, shipping, and agriculture. Because a typical project takes a decade to develop and construct, we are scaling up production today in order to support the UN’s Race to Zero and the International Energy Agency’s net-zero by 2050 pathway and ambitious green scenarios.

Argentina and Chile
20 to 30 GW
wind

Patagonia, blessed with the world’s best wind regime, is one of the few places on the planet where wind alone is sufficient to achieve a sufficiently high utilization rate and some of the lowest-cost hydrogen in the world.

Morocoo
15 GW
wind and solar

AMUN is the country's first large-scale green hydrogen project. With AMUN, the Kingdom of Morocco, one of the world’s largest producers of fertilizers, will launch a green agricultural revolution.

Mauritania
30 GW
wind and solar

Located in the north and covering a site of around 8,500 square km, AMAN will be one of the world’s largest power plants and provide a transformative boost to the Mauritanian economy.

Namibia
5 GW
wind and solar

Pioneering Namibia’s green hydrogen industry since 2018, we are leveraging a fantastic wind resource and one of the highest solar irradiation levels in the world to develop Tumoneni - a hybrid green hydrogen project in the country's south.

Australia
26 GW
wind and solar

Located in the desert of Western Australia, our pilot green hydrogen project AREH will bring not only economic benefits for the region, but also multiple opportunities for the Traditional Owners, the Nyangumarta People.

Australia
50 GW
wind and solar

Our second green hydrogen project in Western Australia developed in partnership with the Mirning People. This project is the largest commercial partnership with Traditional Owners in Australian history.
