The Asian Renewable Energy Hub

Large scale intercontinental energy

6,000 MW of wind and solar generation

Delivered by world leaders in renewable energy

Low cost renewable energy
for South East Asia

The Asian Renewable Energy Hub will generate 6,000 MW of renewable energy in Western Australia, and export it to South East Asia through undersea High Voltage DC transmission cables.

From a 14,000-square kilometre initial land package, 7,000 square kilometres of prime land in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia was selected to accommodate at least 4,000 MW of Vestas wind turbines and 2,000 MW of solar photovoltaic panels. Outstanding wind and solar resource and large scale will result in competitive, firm renewable energy generation.

Project development commenced in 2014 with a study of the entire north west coast of Western Australia. Project land has been secured through an Exclusive Development License with the WA Department of Lands, the traditional owners are actively engaged and supportive, onshore and offshore development studies are underway, a consortium of global renewable energy leaders has been assembled, and most importantly, the Governments of Indonesia and Singapore have been engaged.

Location

The Asian Renewable Energy Hub encompasses 7,000 square kilometres of land in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia. It is on the traditional lands of the Nyangumarta people, who have been closely engaged in the project since its inception, and have actively participated in site ecological studies. The project provides enormous job, skills, revenue and other opportunities for the traditional owners, all enabled by renewable energy.

Project Benefits

The Asian Renewable Energy Hub will create benefits for a wide range of stakeholders:

  • In Indonesia, new manufacturing facilities will be established to manufacture and assemble the wind and solar generating equipment to be installed through the project. This will create skilled high-tech jobs, will develop a local supply chain and will result in technology and knowledge transfer.
  • In Australia, many jobs will be created for the construction, maintenance and operations of the wind and solar generation equipment. There are particular opportunities for the traditional owners, the Nyangumarta people, to develop new skills, jobs and revenue, which will provide long term, enduring community benefits.
  • The project will generate power for over 7 million homes in Indonesia, and will offset almost 1 billion tonnes of CO2 over the life of the project.
