Inside the global race to turn water into fuel

In the Pilbara region of Western Australia, in an expanse of land eight times the size of New York City, a consortium of energy companies sees an opportunity to generate renewable electricity so cheaply that using it to make green hydrogen becomes economical. They expect to produce 26 gigawatts of energy, equivalent to a third of what Australia’s grid currently requires, and thus replace fossil fuel in the mining industry nearby, as well as other industries.
