It’s critical: Calls for Australia to go big and fast or miss green minerals boom

The Age

“China is moving faster than anyone,” on the clean energy race”, Tim Buckley said. Meanwhile, Australia’s efforts are more modest. In June the federal government gave its Northern Australia Investment Fund an additional $500 million to support critical mineral projects. Buckley called for government support proportional to the size of the opportunity. “Five hundred million dollars is one step, we need 100 steps,” he said. The opportunity for Australia is to move from the dig and ship model of coal and iron ore to creating more value by processing the mineral here. Read more

OP ED | How Australia can join forces with South Korea to build batteries onshore

Renew Economy

An Australia-South Korea Compact across value-added critical mineral industries, and scaling of the capacity and cooperation of our respective export credit agencies, should be a strategic federal priority for Australia. Such a Compact would bring material gain to both economies as Australia seeks to move beyond its dig and ship history and capture value further downstream by value-adding and building batteries onshore.

New 10MW electrolyser to feed gas into homes, experts shake their heads

Renew Economy

A $51 million, 10 megawatt (MW) electrolyser is planned for North East Water’s local wastewater plant in Wodonga, one of the largest proposed for Australia, and will feed green hydrogen into the local gas network at a blend of up to 10 per cent. Tim Buckley says gas companies are substituting high emission, low cost gas for low emission, high cost green hydrogen and it’s a low value use of the hydrogen. Read more

OP ED | Critical minerals strategy needs to dig a little deeper

Canberra Times

With the world racing ahead with huge subsidies attracting massive capital inflows, the $500m commitment in the new federal Critical Minerals Strategy released this week is a drop in the ocean, and fails to take advantage of Australia’s unique position in the energy transition as a potential critical minerals value-adding superpower.

OP ED | Missed opportunity: Critical minerals strategy falls drastically short on funding

Renew Economy

Australia has the potential to secure its position as a world leader in value-added critical minerals supply that underpins the energy transition. However, while the new Australian Critical Minerals Strategy 2023-2030 released by the federal government this week rightly foregrounds leveraging international supply and value chain partnerships, the new funding of $500m to NAIF fails to invest in Australia’s minerals boom at a scale commensurate with the opportunity – and is an inadequate response to the capital investments of our partners and competitors in the global decarbonisation race, such as the US IRA.
