Australia Pledges $1.4 Billion in Bid to Be Hydrogen Superpower

As countries compete for capital, investors and developers have said aggressive subsidies like the US Inflation Reduction Act — which provides $374 billion in funding for clean energy — will be needed to attract the vast investment required.

The new measures are a “great first step,” Fortescue Metals Group Ltd. said in a statement on Wednesday. The Australian iron ore miner has ambitions to become one of the world’s biggest green hydrogen producers and plans to reach final investment decisions on five projects around the world this year.

The announcement of significant investment in the green hydrogen sector comes hot on the heels of opening the Northern Territory to natural gas development. Regardless of how the global energy sector evolves Australia looks likely to be significant beneficiary. That also applies to coal exports for both steel and electricity generation.
