According to The Australian Financial Review, Australia has the potential to be “the new Saudi Arabia” of green energy and minerals, says Patrick Lammers, chief operating officer of E.ON, the huge European utility that hopes to start importing green hydrogen from Fortescue Future Industries as early as 2025.
Mr Lammers said “I made a bit of a joke, but I think it actually has something in it. You know, Australia could be the new Saudi Arabia, but then not only having the energy exports, you also export the new minerals in a very green way. This makes you the front-runner, and you could be the richest country in the world.”
