NSW Government gives green light to Jemena’s hydrogen project

12 August 2020

Jemena has today welcomed approval from the NSW Government for its $15 million Western Sydney Green Gas (WSGG) Project – Australia’s largest hydrogen demonstration project.

The WSGG project will utilise solar and wind power to generate hydrogen gas which will be used for cooking, hot water, and heating across Jemena’s New South Wales gas network. The project will also evaluate the application of hydrogen in the transport sector as well as the storage capabilities of Jemena’s New South Wales gas distribution network..

Jemena spokesperson, Michael Pintabona said, the Western Sydney Green Gas project is the crucial next step in bringing renewable hydrogen gas into the New South Wales network.

Co-funded by ARENA, the project will see the first electrolyser in New South Wales installed later this year to generate hydrogen from solar and wind power.

Today’s announcement means the project’s target starting date has been confirmed as early next year.
