A pathway to a cleaner energy future

Hydrogen Park Gladstone (HyP Gladstone) continues AGIG’s hydrogen leadership by extending our renewable gas footprint into Queensland.

It aligns with our vision for a renewable gas future and 10% renewable gas across our networks by 2030.


About HyP Gladstone

Hydrogen Park Gladstone (HyP Gladstone) is a small demonstration facility in Queensland designed to produce renewable hydrogen to start to decarbonise gas supply in Gladstone.

HyP Gladstone is an important step in the development of a sustainable renewable hydrogen economy as supported by the Queensland Hydrogen Industry Strategy 2019-2024.

The facility will produce renewable hydrogen using a 175 kilowatt electrolyser with water and renewable electricity that will be sourced from the grid and matched with Large-scale Generation Certificates (LGC’s) that will be procured and surrendered as required to ensure the electricity used is renewable.

Renewable Gas

Gladstone will be the first city in Australia where the entire gas distribution network will supply customers with a blend of up to 10% (by volume) of renewable gas. There are about 700 customers connected to this network who will be able to benefit from the renewable gas blend.

Supported by the Queensland Government with grant funding from the Hydrogen Industry Development Fund, HyP Gladstone is an important first step in the development of a sustainable renewable hydrogen economy as supported by the Queensland Hydrogen Industry Strategy 2019-2024.

In April 2023, approval was granted for our Development Application from the Gladstone Ports Corporation. The project is now in construction and is expected to be blending to the Gladstone gas distribution network in early 2024.



Project overview

Fast facts

Electrolyser 175kW PEM
Production Up to 2.75kg per hour
Carbon reduction Approximately 57 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions saved per annum. This is the equivalent of removing around 19 petrol passenger vehicles from the road.
Storage 10kg onsite, equivalent to the amount of energy stored in around four standard LPG barbeque bottles (8.5kg bottles).
Electricity Renewable electricity via grid*
Water 15L for 1kg of hydrogen**
Markets Up to 10% (volume) renewable gas blend to around 770 homes and businesses

* AGN will purchase and surrender Australian Government-managed GreenPower Large-scale Generation Certificates (LGCs) as required to ensure the electricity used to produce hydrogen is renewable

** For context, annual volumes used to produce the hydrogen will be very low, the equivalent to six “water wise” hosueholds according to Gladstone Regional Council guidelines.
