Australia’s first whole of network decarbonisation project
Hydrogen Park Gladstone continues AGIG’s hydrogen leadership by extending our renewable gas footprint into Queensland and delivering the first whole of gas network decarbonisation project.
Delivering a cleaner future
Australia has committed to reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) to between 26-28% below 2005 levels by 2030, and Queensland has committed to reach zero net emissions by 2050. Gas networks have an important role to play in reaching these targets by using renewable hydrogen in the same way as natural gas, heating homes and businesses, generating electricity and as a transport fuel.
About Hydrogen Park Gladstone
Hydrogen Park Gladstone (HyP Gladstone) builds on our Hydrogen Park South Australia (HyP SA) facility to deliver additional learnings and lower emissions for customers and the gas sector as a whole.
Supported by the Queensland Government with grant funding of $1.78 million, HyP Gladstone aligns with the State’s Hydrogen Strategy by supporting Gladstone’s vision to be a key hub for Queensland’s domestic and hydrogen export industry, just as it is for natural gas today.
The $4.2 million HyP Gladstone facility will produce renewable hydrogen using water and renewable electricity from the local electricity grid, using a 175kW PEM electrolyser. The renewable hydrogen will be blended with natural gas, at volumes of up to 10% for supply to more than 770 existing customers on Gladstone’s entire gas network.
Beginning production at the end of 2021, HyP Gladstone’s 10% renewable hydrogen blend builds on the 5% supplied to customers from HyP SA and will be the highest volume of hydrogen delivered by an existing gas network. It will also be the first project to supply a renewable hydrogen blend to industrial facilities via the existing gas network.
Current work is focused on delivering detailed engineering and design plans as well as stakeholder and customer engagement.
