Australian Gas Networks and the Australian gas sector has a clear vision for a low carbon future using renewable gases such as hydrogen and biomethane. We know we need to deliver on this vision to help Australia meet national and state-based emissions reductions targets, whilst also maintaining the reliability of supply at lowest cost to our customers.
Hydrogen Park South Australia and Hydrogen Park Gladstone will demonstrate how we can use the existing gas network to deliver blended renewable gas to customers - the Australian Hydrogen Centre (AHC) is the next step in our journey, delivering feasibility studies on blending 10% renewable hydrogen into towns and cities, and plans for a 100% renewable gas future.
Established in late 2019, the $4.15 million Australian Hydrogen Centre (AHC) is backed by a $1.28 million Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) grant with a two year work program to help accelerate the renewable gas industry by:
Importantly, it will also raise community awareness on the use of renewable gas and how this fuel of the future can support achievement of emissions reduction targets.
The AHC has received funding support from ARENA and founding members South Australia’s Department for Energy and Mining, Victoria’s Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, gas and energy infrastructure businesses, AGN and AusNet Services, and leading renewable energy companies, ENGIE and Neoen.
