Realise the advantages a Renewable Gas industry can bring

Create new jobs and training opportunities.

Boosting the energy sector, regional economies and other supporting industries with new opportunities.

Save money using existing infrastructure

Utilising existing gas network infrastructure can help NSW decarbonise quickly and cost-efficiently.

Accelerate options for cleaner energy and transport

Providing more options for heavy industry and transport sectors to meet emissions targets and decarbonise supply chains.

"Hydrogen will not only help NSW halve our emissions by 2030 and get to net zero by 2050, it will create new opportunities for our heavy industry, and an economic bonanza of investment and jobs,"

– NSW State Treasurer Matt Kean, October 2021

Renewable Gas is being used around the world with remarkable success.

UK

UK gas companies are blending up to 20% green hydrogen into natural gas pipe networks to some residential and industrial customers, and trialling 100% green hydrogen in selected areas, like the H100 Fife project*

Germany

Germany has over 9,500 Bio gas plants. Employing 45,000 people and producing the equivalent of 25GW of electricity. That’s enough to power over 7 million homes*

California, USA

Just one biomethane plant in California is now producing 2.26 billion cubic feet of renewable gas for thousands of homes and businesses – the equivalent of taking more than 25,000 petrol cars off the road.

There are two main types of Renewable Gas: Green Hydrogen and Biomethane

Green Hydrogen

100% Renewable Green hydrogen is made when excess renewable electricity (from wind and solar) is used to split water into hydrogen and oxygen through a process called 'electrolysis'.

Biomethane

Boosting the Circular Economy By capturing biogas from decomposing agricultural, organic, and domestic waste, and removing the carbon dioxide, the waste methane can instead be used as a renewable energy source.
