BP set to take stake in one of world’s biggest green hydrogen projects
The global oil giant BP is reportedly set to buy into the massive 26GW Asia Renewable Hub (AREH), one of the world’s biggest green hydrogen projects.
An announcement on the future of AREH has been expected this week, and late on Monday the Australian reported that BP would take a “major stake” in the project whose owners currently include Intercontinental Energy, CWP Global, Vestas and Macquarie Group.
According to The Australian, BP is set to formally announce the investment at the World Hydrogen Summit in Rotterdam this week.
That would make sense, given that WA hydrogen minister Alannah MacTiernan, one of the driving forces behind the green hydrogen industry in the state, is also attending that conference.
The emergence of BP in AREH would be a significant development for the project itself, which has previously targeted Japanese coal generators as one of the buyers of green ammonia produced from the project, and for BP itself.
