Jemena buys electrolyser for hydrogen gas trial

Homes in New South Wales, Australia could be powered by hydrogen in the near future as energy infrastructure company Jemena today confirmed it had purchased the state’s first electrolyser.

The electrolyser is part of a $15m trial, co-funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), which will produce renewably generated hydrogen gas for use in homes and businesses within the next five years.

Canadian firm Hydrogenics has developed the 500 kilowatt electrolyser which will be located in Western Sydney. The technology will use solar and wind power to create carbon neutral hydrogen gas to be stored in the Jemena Gas Network.
