Australia is making significant progress toward achieving our stretch target of producing clean hydrogen at or under $2 per kilogram.
Building on over $850 million in hydrogen investments and our recent announcement of $540 million for new regional hydrogen hubs, the Australian Government will invest over $100 million to develop three large-scale hydrogen plants in Western Australia and Victoria that will be among the biggest in the world.
10 megawatt electrolyser project for renewable hydrogen
Investing up to $42.5 million towards a 10 megawatt (MW) electrolyser project to produce renewable hydrogen in Yara Pilbara Fertiliser’s existing ammonia facility in Karratha, Western Australia.
10 megawatt electrolyser for gas blending in WA
Up to $28.7 million towards a 10 MW electrolyser for gas blending at ATCO’s Clean Energy Innovation Park in Warradarge, Western Australia.
10 megawatt electrolyser for gas blending in Victoria
Up to $32.1 million towards a 10 MW electrolyser for gas blending at AGIG’s Murray Valley Hydrogen Park in Wodonga, Victoria.
Engie’s project will see renewable hydrogen used to produce ammonia for export in the Pilbara, while ATCO and AGIG’s projects will use renewable energy to produce hydrogen for gas blending into the existing natural gas pipelines. The natural gas network will be key to delivering hydrogen directly into the homes of millions of Australians in the future.
The projects will also play a significant role in supporting commercial-scale deployments of renewable hydrogen in Australia and help progress Australia’s pathway to achieving the Australian Government’s goal of ‘H2 under $2’.
