Total Eren has announced the establishment of its fourth office in Australia, located in Perth, Western Australia (WA) dedicated to lead the development of renewable hydrogen (H2) projects within the State. The development of competitive GW-scale H2 projects in Australia is of strategic importance to Total Eren, which recognises Australia’s role as part of its global H2 strategy and opportunity to be a leading H2 economy.
With a team of over 40 renewable energy experts in Australia, Total Eren has over the past 18 months created a H2 development pipeline with up to 30 GW of generation capacity, identified and developed internally by the team in Australia, located across the Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia and WA. Total Eren looks forward to advancing its H2 developments in WA and playing a pivotal role in WA Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap with a particular focus on domestic supply and export opportunities.
'Australia is key in Total Eren’s global strategy. The continued growth of our team in Perth is a demonstration of our commitment to advancing our H2 pipeline in Western Australia and our collective global expertise to deliver the lowest cost of energy for the hydrogen future' said David Corchia, CEO of Total Eren.
On 16 February 2023, the binding term sheet between Total Eren Australia and Province Resources Limited expired and has not been extended. 'Western Australia is of primary importance to Total Eren and we are advancing on our H2 projects in the State under our leadership and a strong level of executability' added Kam Ho, Managing Director of Total Eren Australia.
Total Eren in Australia today owns and operates the largest solar farm in Victoria – the 256 MWp Kiamal Solar Farm (Stage 1) and is advancing on the development of 194 MWp Stage 2 of Kiamal Solar Farm, featuring Australia’s first DC-coupled inverters and up to 300 MWh of energy storage capacity and is expected to commence construction this year.
