Infinite Green Energy Avon Valley Business Awards 2022

Infinite Green Energy (IGE) is proud to sponsor the 2022 Avon Valley Business Awards as the naming-rights partner.

The Infinite Green Energy Avon Valley Business Awards will recognise business excellence in the entire Avon Valley region.

The awards across 12 categories will be presented at a gala ball in Northam on November 12, which will also see the announcement of Infinite Green Energy’s Best Business of The Avon Valley.

Infinite Green joins Red Earth to build new Canadian JV

Special Report: Infinite Green Energy is making inroads into the North American market through a joint venture with Red Earth Energy and Frontier Impact Group

Canada was selected as the ideal location for the new H2 Canada JV for the production of green hydrogen due to its abundance of fresh water, hydroelectricity and wind energy potential.

Additionally, the JV will form partnerships with Indigenous First Nations communities in Canada to support and supply green hydrogen to a new, developing Canadian domestic market and export markets in Europe, Asia, the US and the Americas.

Several locations have been identified and all are progressing at different stages.

The JV plans to initially reduce carbon emissions in Canada by 120,000t per annum and create large economic opportunities in the renewable energy space.

“It’s a great pleasure to join with Red Earth Energy to deliver H2 Canada working in partnership with First Nations traditional landowners,” Infinite Green Energy chief executive officer Stephen Gauld said.

“Canada is an ideal location to enable green hydrogen delivery into the American and European markets.”

Frontier Impact Group managing director Jennifer Patterson expressed the company’s belief that green hydrogen has an important role to play in the energy transition and expected to leveraging its experience in the Australia market with its partners to achieve impactful results in Canada.

“Red Earth Energy will leverage the expertise of Infinite Green Energy, the leading green hydrogen company in Australia and internationally and Frontier Impact Group, a climate solutions investment and advisory firm who are pioneering the transition of Australia to net carbon zero, to hit the ground running in Canada,” Red Earth Energy managing director Peter Walsh said.

Green hydrogen hubs

The JV intends to propose green hydrogen hubs in Newfoundland, Quebec and British Columbia.

Feasibility studies will be carried out with the help of First Nations communities in Canada during the fourth quarter of 2022, and these are expected to be completed within 10 months.

The move expands on the company’s existing operations in Western Australia such as the MEG HP1 project in Northam and the larger Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant.

Infinite Green Energy adds further depth to Board

Infinite Green Energy (IGE, formerly Infinite Blue Energy), today, announced the appointment of a second Director in as many weeks with the appointment of corporate and finance transaction and deal specialist, Tim Lester, to its Board.

Mr Lester has almost 30 years’ experience providing strategic advisory services, transactional consulting and legal counsel services to clients based throughout the world and is the Co-Founder and Principal at specialist, multi-disciplinary advisory firm, Jameson Boyce Partners.

Infinite Green Energy signs MOU with Strike Energy’s Project Haber

Infinite Green Energy (IGE, formerly Infinite Blue Energy), today, announced it has entered a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Strike Energy to supply renewable hydrogen to its Project Haber urea production facility near Geraldton.

Strike Energy will manufacture 1.4Mtpa of low carbon urea at the Narngulu Industrial Estate at Geraldton and will require up to 390 tpd of green hydrogen to complement the renewable hydrogen produced on site.

Infinite Green Energy CEO, Stephen Gauld, said the signing of the MOU is evidence of the growing demand in industry for green hydrogen domestically, which reflects the growth in market potential being experienced overseas.

“The potential for renewable hydrogen as a pillar of a cleaner economic transformation is being recognised throughout the world with government policy positions and a growing commitment from large industry to decarbonise incentivising investment in large-scale hydrogen projects as carbon neutral forms of energy,” Mr Gauld said.

“IGE is on a pathway to producing 265tpd of green hydrogen for domestic and export markets from its Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant in Western Australia. I am excited that we have entered into a MOU with Strike Energy as a first step to securing a long-term supply partnership with Project Haber, which currently represents the biggest industrial manufacturing opportunity for green hydrogen off-take in Australia.”

IGE will develop its Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant in three stages with the first stage of 25tpd of green hydrogen being produced during late 2024 with anticipated production of 5tpd as part of our demonstration project.

Once the three stages are completed, Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant will produce up to 265tonnes of green hydrogen each day from 1314MW of solar, 1030MW of wind and 110MW of battery energy located on site. The 96,000 tonnes of green hydrogen each year will displace more than 1.3 million tonnes of CO2 emissions based on natural gas emission rates.

Arrowsmith will be a worldwide scale Green Hydrogen facility supporting domestic Australia and Asia Pacific from its flagship location in the Perth Basin. Below is the production ramp up to support Project Haber.

Peter Coleman appointed Infinite Green Energy Chairman

L-R: Stephen Gauld, Peter Coleman, Yolanda Zhao

Infinite Green Energy (IGE, formerly Infinite Blue Energy) has appointed Mr Peter Coleman as Chairman of its Board of Directors.

Mr Coleman will join IGE’s Board as Non-Executive Chairman effective 30th August 2021.

The former CEO and Managing Director of Woodside Energy is one of Australia’s most prominent business leaders with more than 35 years’ experience in the energy sector.

Infinite Green Energy CEO and co-founder, Stephen Gauld, said the appointment of Mr Coleman underlines the significance of the opportunity available to IGE in producing green hydrogen for domestic and export markets and is a further vote of confidence in the company’s projects and future strategy.

“Mr Coleman is a respected leader in the energy sector who understands the challenges facing, and the opportunities available to the industry in being at the forefront of global decarbonisation,” Mr Gauld said.

“The potential for renewable hydrogen as a pillar of a cleaner economic transformation is being recognised throughout the world with government policy positions incentivising investment in large-scale hydrogen projects as carbon neutral forms of energy.

“IGE is on a pathway to producing 265 tonnes per day of green hydrogen for domestic and export markets from its Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant in Western Australia. The project is aligned to the state’s Renewable Hydrogen Strategy and will be the flagship in a portfolio of renewable hydrogen projects IGE will develop throughout Australia and internationally.

“Mr Coleman’s experience and leadership will position IGE as a leader in the development of this exciting new global marketplace and sends a strong signal to our investors that the business can continue on its path with confidence.”

Mr Coleman has been a long-time proponent of the benefits of hydrogen as a means of reducing carbon emissions globally.

“Hydrogen produced from renewable sources, in particular, has enormous potential to decarbonise economies in the future as investment levels increase, climate policies strengthen, and costs of production decrease,” he said.

“Hydrogen is a transport fuel of the future and can be used to decarbonise long haulage transport and remote operations and to reduce emissions in heavy industry and infrastructure.

“I join the IGE Board with the business at an advanced stage in securing its domestic and export market positions and I’m delighted to be leading an Australian business that will be at the forefront of the nation’s desire to create a renewable hydrogen industry.”
