• Hydrogen Blending

    Decarbonisation of the Western Australian gas network is another step closer with ATCO awarded almost $2M in funding from WA’s Renewable Hydrogen Fund to support a project to blend hydrogen into the network, lowering emissions for the West Australian community.

    This project will be the largest of its kind in Australia, at around 2,500 connections, and will see up to 10% renewable hydrogen blended into discrete sections of the WA gas distribution network. This will achieve the WA Government’s goal of distributing renewable hydrogen in the network by 2022, and take steps towards the longer term goal of blending up to 10 per cent network-wide by 2030.

    Initially, the blending will use renewable hydrogen produced at ATCO’s existing Clean Energy Innovation Hub. As blending extends further into the network, and in higher concentrations, in the coming years it’s anticipated this investment will further spur the growth of the renewable hydrogen industry. This includes ATCO’s proposed Clean Energy Innovation Park, recently supported by ARENA and currently in development in Western Australia’s mid-west.
