Southern Green Gas and Enwave Australia plan green hydrogen field trial

In Australia, renewable natural gas (RNG) developer Southern Green Gas Ltd (SGG) has announced that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with gas network operator Enwave Australia Pty Ltd to conduct a renewable hydrogen field trial. The proposed field trial will initially involve the production of renewable hydrogen comprising water production from air and electrolysis from solar power.

In Australia, renewable natural gas (RNG) developer Southern Green Gas Ltd (SGG) has announced that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with gas network operator Enwave Australia Pty Ltd to conduct a renewable hydrogen field trial. The proposed field trial in Victoria (VIC) will initially involve the production of renewable hydrogen comprising water production from air and electrolysis from solar power.

The joint field trial is proposed to be located at one of Enwave’s Victorian network sites in regional Victoria. At a later date, the intention is to expand the field trial to include carbon dioxide (CO2) production from the air and combining hydrogen and CO2 in a methanation reactor to produce pipeline-quality renewable methane (aka synthetic natural gas -SNG).

Subject to the success of the field trial, SGG and Enwave may enter into a Market Development Agreement, where they may jointly pursue Australian renewable gas market opportunities – both hydrogen and methane – using SGG’s technology.

This could involve market research and discussions with potential customers, to understand the requirements and size and growth of the market.

This is an exciting development for SGG. Enwave Australia is a multi-utility that designs, builds, owns, and operates water, gas, and energy networks for entire communities in Australia. They acknowledge the growing desire of energy users to consider lower carbon-intensive sources and are well placed to service this demand, commented Rohan Gillespie, Managing Director Southern Green Gas.
