Aboriginal Australians are revolutionising clean energy

Words by Abi Scaife

Aboriginal owners are teaming up with a clean energy investor for what could become one of the biggest clean energy projects in Australia.

Amazing! What’s going on?

The Aboriginal Clean Energy company will be running the project, with shares held by three Indigenous groups as well as climate crisis investment and advisory firm Pollination.

What is the project for?

The aim of the project is to use renewable energy from an existing facility, turning green hydrogen into green ammonia for agricultural fertilisers - and it will all be powered by more than one million (yes, one million!) solar panels.

This is a huge win, not only for Indigenous economic empowerment in Australia, but also for the green energy movement, and helping to protect our environment.
