Innovation doesn’t always mean something new has been invented. We can also deliver benefits to customers and improve network efficiencies by exploring new ways to utilise current assets and existing technologies. Jemena’s Western Sydney Green Gas demonstration is a case in point. The renewable gas project will convert solar and wind power into hydrogen gas, via electrolysis, which will then be stored for use across the Jemena Gas Network (JGN) in New South Wales, the biggest gas distribution network in Australia. If the demonstration to power 250 homes and a hydrogen vehicle refuelling station is successful, we’ll look to expand it across the NSW network.
Construction of the Western Sydney Green Gas Project will commence in early January 2021 and is expected to be completed in the middle/latter part of the year.
