Australia’s First Homes to be Powered by Hydrogen
The Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) announced a hydrogen project earlier in 2019. The project, called ‘Hydrogen Park SA’ (Hyp SA), will be based in the suburb of Tonsley.
The project, which will cost $11.4m, will test the economic feasibility of supplying the market with hydrogen. Hyp SA will mix hydrogen into the natural gas network at about 5% to supply local homes and businesses. This is only possible because the existing network is in place and is a great example of how natural gas is making renewable energy sources possible.
Hyp SA will begin operations in mid-2020 and will run for approximately five years. Visit Australian Gas Infrastructure Group for more info.
