Forrest vs. Musk in Hydrogen-Electric Showdown

In the ever-evolving landscape of clean energy, a verbal joust between two industry heavyweights has taken center stage.

Fortescue Metals, led by Andrew Forrest, has manually produced its first “home-grown” hydrogen electrolysers at its Gladstone “gigafactory.” These 1MW PEM electrolysers, to be automated soon, mark a pivotal development for Fortescue’s participation in the Australian federal government’s $2 billion Hydrogen Head-start program.
