Two years ago, Energy Networks Australia launched Gas Vision 2050 – a vision that describes how transformational technologies can be deployed to achieve reliable, secure energy and cost-effective carbon reductions from gaseous fuel use.
Since then, industry has invested in research and development, policy analysis and pilot projects to demonstrate these new technologies, with a focus on the role of hydrogen.
According to a new report released this week by Energy Networks Australia and the Australian Pipelines and Gas Association (APGA), $180m in funding has been committed for hydrogen infrastructure projects since the release of Gas Vision 2050.
Hydrogen Innovation – Delivering on the Vision says the two associations plan is to demonstrate the viability of these technologies by the mid-2020s and then start reducing emissions in individual networks, with the objective of full conversion across the country to zero emissions gas in the longer term.
