Investing in our energy future
In NSW, we are investing millions of dollars in renewable gas research and development projects. We are busily working towards modifying our network to transport zero carbon green gas in the near future. This is part of the industry’s Gas Vision 2050 plan, which will support Australia’s wider energy targets and its bid to move away from primarily coal fired electricity generation. Taking this approach will save customers in the long-term by avoiding billions of dollars in new infrastructure investment and not putting increased pressure on electricity networks at peak times. It will also mean customers can continue to choose Natural Gas energy solutions to power their homes well into the future.
