The Asian Renewable Energy Hub proposes the construction and operation of a large-scale wind and solar hybrid renewable energy project, to be situated in the Pilbara region in north-west Western Australia.

The proposal would involve the construction of up to 1,743 wind turbines, up to 2,000 megawatts of solar panels, above and below ground transmission cables, and four subsea power cables. The onshore and offshore elements cover a total development area of 662,400 hectares.

The planned project has a generation capacity of 15 gigawatts from wind and solar resources, with up to three gigawatts of output earmarked for industrial energy users in the Pilbara, including hydrogen producers. The remaining 12 gigawatts of generation is expected to be used in large-scale green hydrogen production or exported directly via power cables to Indonesia and Singapore.

The project proponent, NW Interconnected Power Pty Ltd, is jointly owned by CWP Energy Asia, InterContinental Energy, and Vestas. Macquarie Group joined the project consortium as an investor in October 2018.

In May 2020, the WA EPA provided its recommendation for environmental approval to be granted subject to conditions. The WA Minister for Environment is yet to make the final determination in regards to the environmental approval.
