Hydrogen Park South Australia


Renewable Gas

Australia’s first renewable gas blend supplied to existing customers

Hydrogen Park South Australia (HyP SA) is an Australian first to deliver a renewable hydrogen blend to customers on the existing gas network.

A pioneering project, HyP SA is the first step on our pathway to help reach Australia’s emissions targets and our own vision for a renewable gas future.

About Hydrogen Park South Australia

Located at the Tonsley Innovation District, HyP SA is an Australian first project that produces renewable hydrogen gas.

Supported by the South Australian Government with grant funding of $4.9 million, the $14.5m HyP SA project is aligned with the State's vision to leverage its wind, sun, land, infrastructure and skills to be a world-class renewable hydrogen supplier and to reach net zero emissions by 2050.

At HyP SA, renewable hydrogen is produced from water and renewable electricity using a 1.25MW Siemens Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyser.

Commencing production in May 2021, and expanded in March 2023, HyP SA delivers a 5% renewable gas blend to more than 4000 gas customers in Adelaide’s south in the suburbs of Mitchell Park, Clovelly Park and parts of Marion. This includes households, businesses and schools.

We are also supplying to industry via tube trailers (long storage tubes on the back of semi-trailers) and aim to supply the transport sector in the future.

HyP SA demonstrates renewable hydrogen production and blending technology in an Australian context and delivers a 5% hydrogen blend which is a step towards lowering greenhouse gas emissions on our networks. We are currently extending our hydrogen footprint with projects to deliver up to 10% hydrogen blends in Gladstone and Albury and Wodonga, as well as investing in projects such as the Australian Hydrogen Centre.


Project overview

Fast facts

Online May 2021
Electrolyser 1.25MW Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM)
Production Up to 20kg per hour
Storage 40kg onsite
Electricity Renewable electricity via grid*
Water 15L of ultrapure water for 1kg of hydrogen**
Markets Up to 5% (volume) renewable gas blend to about 4000 homes, businesses and schools and 100% to industry via tube trailers

* AGN will purchase (and voluntarily surrender) Large Scale Generation Certificates as required to ensure the electricity used to produce hydrogen is  renewable.

** For context, in South Australia, the average person uses 190L of water per day. Running the HyP SA facility for 1 hour is the equivalent of a 30 minute shower with a low flow showerhead.
