Gas network up to hydrogen challenge – industry

Australia’s gas industry is up to the challenge and opportunities presented by the increasing use of hydrogen as a fuel, according to industry players.

The Australian Pipelines and Gas Association ceo, Steve Davies told the APGA annual convention yesterday that Australia’s 45,000 kilometres of high pressure gas pipelines were the optimal infrastructure to deliver gas.

“Pipelines are the optimal infrastructure that does the task safely, reliably and efficiently”, he said.

He pointed to the just released Gas Vision 2050 report which set out the pilot projects underway examining the use of hydrogen in gas networks.

Projects include:

# The Future Fuels CRC which is looking at how gas infrastructure can deliver new fuels such as hydrogen.

# The Woodside Monash Energy Partnership located at Monash University.

# Hydrogen Park, SA involving the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group and located vat Tonsley in Adelaide.

# Sydney’s Western Sydney Green Gas Project led by Jemena.

# And the Clean Energy Innovation Hub, led by ATCO, at Jandakot near Perth.

Davies said: “To say that hydrogen is hot right now is an understatement.”
