WA Leads the Way in Green Hydrogen: Introducing a New Diversification Lease

. .

WA is gearing up to capitalize on the potential of hydrogen as a clean fuel, with the government introducing a new form of land tenure, diversification lease, to make it easier for green hydrogen projects to secure large areas. Green hydrogen is made by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen using renewable energy, while blue hydrogen is the current dirty method with extra equipment to capture and bury much but not all the carbon dioxide produced. WA has many advantages for investors in green hydrogen such as vast sunny and windy areas and lots of gas and reservoirs to store CO2. However, large projects need numerous environmental approvals and land access agreements which can take many years. Clean hydrogen is not the main way to cut carbon pollution but increasing efficiency and electrifying everything are important steps towards minimizing damage from climate change.

Hydrogen: A Green Alternative to Carbon

Hydrogen is a clean and renewable energy source that has the potential to replace carbon-based fuels. It is the most abundant element in the universe, making up about 75% of all matter. Hydrogen can be used to generate electricity, heat, and power vehicles without producing any emissions. In fact, when hydrogen is burned it produces only water vapor as a byproduct. Additionally, hydrogen fuel cells are more efficient than traditional combustion engines and can provide up to three times more energy than gasoline or diesel. Furthermore, hydrogen fuel cells have a longer lifespan than other forms of energy production and require less maintenance. As such, they are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to carbon-based fuels for transportation and other applications.
