The South Australian Government has detailed three hydrogen hubs it believes will position the state at the forefront of the clean hydrogen industry.
Located at Port Bonython, Port Adelaide and Cape Hardy, SA Minister for Energy and Mining Dan van Holst Pellekaan said with these hubs the state was aiming to reduce the costs of hydrogen and make it a commercially attractive energy option for transport, industry and power generation.
“This prospectus reveals that South Australia can become a national and international exporter of clean power, while achieving the goal of net-100 per cent renewable energy,” he said.
“The hub at Port Bonython in the Upper Spencer Gulf could export industrial-scale green hydrogen around Whyalla and Port Augusta.”
The minister said the launch of SA’s Hydrogen Export Modelling Tool and Prospectus would be a key step to making the state both a consumer and exporter of hydrogen.
“This new Prospectus and modelling tool cements our credentials as a world-class place to do business and leading renewable hydrogen producer and supplier to the world,” he said.
The government said the tool would offer a comprehensive pre-feasibility study into large scale production and export of clean hydrogen and enable prospective investors to determine the costs of such exercises.
