Sussan Ley says planned Pilbara development would harm wetlands and threatened bird species

A massive renewable energy export development in the Pilbara has been declared “clearly unacceptable” by the federal environment minister due to its impact on threatened migratory species and internationally recognised wetlands.

Sussan Ley’s ruling means the proponents of the $50bn Asian renewable energy hub will need to significantly revamp their plans if the development is to go ahead. They argue it could revolutionise the production of hydrogen globally by showing it can be created at an affordable price using solar and windpower.
