Hydrogen energyProject Australian Hydrogen Centre
This report documents the design, operation, and performance of Hydrogen Park South Australia (HypSA). The HypSA project demonstrates the production of green hydrogen which is injected at low concentrations into the local natural gas distribution network for use by local households and businesses. The project was developed by Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG).
HyP SA is Australia’s largest operating electrolyser site and the first to deliver a volume of up to 5% renewable hydrogen blend with natural gas to homes on the existing gas network in metropolitan Adelaide. In early 2023, its outreach was increased from 700 homes to nearly 4,000 homes and businesses in Mitchell Park, Clovelly Park and parts of Marion.
By blending renewable hydrogen in the southern part of metropolitan Adelaide suburb of Mitchell Park, HyP SA enables the local community to start to reduce the amount of carbon in their existing gas supply without needing to change the way they cook, clean and heat.
HyP SA’s delivery is also a key early step to demonstrating how existing gas infrastructure can be used to supply renewable gas to customers to help achieve our climate targets, whilst retaining its reliability and energy security benefits.
This Report is a key deliverable of the Australian Hydrogen Centre (AHC), prepared by AGIG to report on how HyP SA has achieved a technically successful demonstration of hydrogen production and network blending. It also outlines a promising pathway for commercial expansion through recent commencement of industrial supply and imminent network expansion.
