Western Sydney Green Gas Project
Our Western Sydney Green Gas Project is a $15 million trial, co-funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).
Using NSW’s first electrolyser, the 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, to be distributed to NSW homes and businesses within the next five years.

Malabar Biomethane Project
We have partnered with Sydney Water to generate biomethane at the Malabar Wastewater Treatment Plant in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, in a $14 million project, jointly funded by Jemena and ARENA.
This project will see renewable biomethane gas injected into the gas grid for the first time in Australia, creating enough energy to power up to 13,300 homes. Biomethane is a safe, reliable and sustainable source of energy and the project is due to commence in 2022.
Hydrogen vehicles and transport
Renewably generated hydrogen gas can be used as an alternative fuel type in the transport sector, so we’re helping to make it directly available in a deal with Hyundai Australia and Coregas.
Hydrogen vehicles will be a step closer to taking over Sydney’s roads once we produce and deliver hydrogen gas to Hyundai’s Macquarie Park headquarters from early 2021. Using hydrogen gas generated as part of our Western Sydney Green Gas Project, we’re looking forward to playing our part in demonstrating how it can be used for zero-emission transportation.
