With 2022 truly underway, we see clear blue skies and endless opportunities on the horizon for the renewable energy space. In the coming months, we plan to build upon the momentum we formed with our partners in the year gone by.
As the world gears up towards net-zero targets, we believe 2021 has provided us with an excellent platform to develop cutting-edge solutions for decarbonising the global economy.
Over the next 12 months, Liberty Energy Capital and its partners will be leading this shift through a number of planned public listings and capital raises to fund groundbreaking green technology. With much to look forward to, we expect this to be an exciting year for the Australian hydrogen and renewable industries.
We are passionate about helping businesses realise their full potential and connecting key players to drive impact at scale, so reach out if you have an idea or want to join us in the green energy revolution.
Look below for an update on all the moves our investments are making in the renewable energy space.
Recently, the company shipped the first set of P2H units to Western Australia’s Kimberley Clean Energy’s (KCE) Kilto Station near Broome, which is due to arrive in the coming months.
This marks a significant step in an MOU Patriot signed with KCE to build the company 75 P2H units.
Verdant Earth Technologies
In early January, Verdant Earth Technologies announced that it had publicly filed a registration statement on Form F-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) relating to a proposed initial public offering of its ordinary shares.
The company applied to list its shares on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker symbol “VDNT”. The number of shares to be offered and the price range for the proposed offering have not yet been determined.
Verdant Earth Technologies is a development stage green energy company with the goal to build a network of renewable energy and green hydrogen projects in Australia.
Australia’s leading hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle manufacturing company, H2X, has kicked off the New Year with a bang. The company’s Warrego was featured in Cars Guide’s list of the ‘five best hydrogen cars to look forward to in Australia‘.
This fanfare was then followed by the submission of an order-interest form for 30-plus Warregos by an American company. So, it’s safe to say the world is taking notice of H2X!
The assembly of the Warrego, Australia’s first hydrogen-powered ute, has begun with live testing expected in the coming weeks. Currently, the company is on track to deliver the revolutionary vehicles to their first set of customers in April 2022.

In other news, Pure Hydrogen’s (ASX:PH2) strategic stake in H2X has gone from strength to strength. In December, the pair launched a range of hydrogen fuel cell power generation units — Power H2 — that can supply electricity without emissions using hydrogen fuel.
We can now expect these to be available for purchase in the first quarter of this year.
We were given exclusive photo access to Titan Hydrogen’s testing of their revolutionary fuel cell at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).
Trials at QUT have proven that Titan Hydrogen’s fuel cell enhancement technology generates substantially higher voltages than regular fuel cells. Validation from QUT shows Titan is close to developing scalable technology that can increase the capacity of fuel cells by up to 60%.
Once commercialised, we will see a quick global uptake of hydrogen fuel cells.
Aviation H2 has commenced researching and testing potential designs for the various storage, power creation, and conversion to thrust applications of their hydrogen powered-plane.
Once they decide on the best solution, the team will assemble the technologies so they can see the energy paths available. This will allow them to make a high-level evaluation for reliability, environmental impact, efficiency and weight, as well as identify future opportunities for optimising performance.
The information will be used to select the most viable energy path, meaning they will be able to prepare a cost estimation and a statistical analysis of overall/component uncertainties. Their goal is to find avenues to flight that provide the quickest and safest way to achieve a carbon-free commercial outcome while also putting forward the best potential for future possibilities.
One of the most important elements will be ensuring the design process implements a state-of-the-art solution for converting an existing aircraft to carbon-free propulsion with the majority of its base certification retained.
This will be critical to seeing quick uptake from major players in the industry, as repurposing existing planes means familiarity and existing systems are already in place.
After initial testing is completed in early March, the team will present their recommendation on the most commercially viable model to the board and potential investors. Following this, the project’s second phase will begin — building Australia’s first hydrogen-powered plane — which will take us through to the experimental flight of an aircraft.
Aviation H2 has recently opened to investors to fund the project’s planning study for the development of the green energy jet engine plane. Don’t miss out on getting involved in an Australian first technology — contact us today for more details.
