Using electrolysis to produce hydrogen from water on a commercial scale has the potential to have a significant impact on Australia’s electricity systems, according to a new report.
Developed to support the National Hydrogen Strategy, the report by GHD Advisory and ACIL Allen assesses the potential role of hydrogen in Australia’s power systems and whether the electricity sector regulatory frameworks could enable large-scale hydrogen production and power generation.
Commenting on the report, Elizabeth O’Brien, GHD Advisory’s Senior Advisor – Risk, Assurance & Regulation, said, “Electrolysers can ramp up and down very quickly.”
“One of the key findings of the report is that if appropriate incentives are in place, the hydrogen industry could help Australia maintain a secure and reliable power system by matching electricity consumption to variable renewable generation.”
