The hydrogen would be sold domestically and exported, most likely to Japan and South Korea, which have expressed a desire to shift energy consumption in that direction. Overhead transmission lines will send electricity to Darwin and plug into the NT grid. Both note the fact their proposals are off-grid has helped insulate them from politically loaded debates that pit renewable energy against fossil fuels. The NT plan follows a similarly ambitious proposal for the Pilbara, where another group of developers are working on an even bigger wind and solar hybrid plant to power local industry and develop a green hydrogen manufacturing hub. If developed as planned, a gigawatt-capacity array of panels will be spread across 15, hectares and be backed by battery storage to ensure it can supply power around the clock. Ross Garnaut , former advisor to Labor governments who is now professor of economics at the University of Melbourne and chairman of the Australian-German Energy Transition Hub , makes the case that there is another way ahead. Though few in the southern states are yet to take notice, a group of Australian developers are betting that will change. It would make it the natural home for growth in minerals processing for a world that increasingly values production powered by solar, wind and other clean sources. As most of the cost of clean energy developments is capital the fuel is free , he says the transformation has radically changed the ability of clean projects to compete with fossil fuels.
