Australian Hydrogen Centre gets the green light

The Marshall Government’s transformation of South Australia’s energy system takes another significant step forward today with the establishment of the Australian Hydrogen Centre.

Launched today at Tonsley Innovation District, the centre will undertake feasibility studies into blending 10% and 100% hydrogen into city and regional gas networks in South Australia and Victoria as a key step towards the greater use of hydrogen in gas distribution networks.

Led by Australian Gas Network (AGN) in collaboration with founding members Neoen, AusNet Services and ENGIE, the Australian Hydrogen Centre will build on the learnings from AGN’s Hydrogen Park SA project, which is anticipated to deliver cleaner gas to more than 700 customers in Mitchell Park from mid-2020 – at no additional cost to residents.

The centre will have more than $4m in government funding, industry cash and in-kind contributions, and has today secured $1.28m from ARENA, $120,000 from the South Australian Government and $500,000 from the Victorian Government.
