In this episode, Liam talks to Andrew Forrest – the legendary Australian mining mogul who set up both Anaconda Nickel and the Fortescue Mining Group. Forrest is one of the world’s leading advocates of hydrogen energy – and backs in particular the use of “green hydrogen”- produced by splitting water via electrolysis, using electricity from renewable sources. Forrest dubs so-called “blue hydrogen”, the production of which involves fossil fuels, “purely marketing” and “a con”.
Visiting the UK for the COP 26 summit, Forrest has just teamed up with JCB – a leading UK supporter of hydrogen fuel – with the British firm signing a deal to buy 10 per cent of Fortescue’s global green hydrogen production and manage its UK-wide distribution.
