Historic partnership signed between Traditional Owners and clean energy investor

Philippines-listed ACEN has partnered with Traditional Owners, the Yindjibarndi people, to develop and operate large-scale renewable energy projects in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.

The historic partnership is one of Australia’s largest Indigenous-led renewable energy initiatives. It ensures the Yindjibarndi people have approval for all proposed project sites on Yindjibarndi Ngurra (country), equity participation of 25% to 50% in all projects, preferred contracting for Yindjibarndi-owned businesses, and training and employment opportunities.

ACEN and the Yindjibarndi Aboriginal Corporation (YAC) have formed the Yindjibarndi Energy Corporation (YEC). YEC’s initial goal is to start constructing 750 MW of combined wind, solar and battery storage over the next few years – an investment of more than A$1 billion.
