Australia’s First Net-Zero Hybrid Power Station Gets The Green Light

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Australian Broadcasting Company.

This is the first paragraph.

Australia’s first power plant — capable of running on both hydrogen and natural gas — will be built in NSW, following an agreement between the private sector and both state and federal governments.

The article also makes these key points.

  • The gas power plant could begin using green hydrogen as early as 2025.
  • EnergyAustralia plans to buy 200,000kg of green hydrogen a year — equivalent to five per cent of the plant’s fuel use.
  • The Illawarra project is expected to deliver a $300-million boost to the economy and support about 250 jobs during construction.

But it doesn’t say, where the green hydrogen is coming from.

Is it going to be produced by solar power in Australia’s hot interior or is it going to be imported by ship at the hydrogen hub at Port Kembla?
