Green giants: the massive projects that could make Australia a clean energy superpower
The Asian Renewable Energy Hub would have an energy content equivalent to 40% of Australia’s overall electricity generation
The world’s largest power station is planned for a vast piece of desert about half the size of greater suburban Sydney in Australia’s remote north-west.
Called the Asian Renewable Energy Hub, its size is difficult to conceptualise. If built in full, there will be 1,600 giant wind turbines and a 78 sq km array of solar panels a couple of hundred kilometres east of Port Hedland in the Pilbara.
