Decarbonising Australia’s gas networks

Decarbonising gas in Australia by 2050 is achievable with the use of hydrogen, biogas and carbon capture and storage (CCS) applied to Australia’s extensive gas network infrastructure, a suite of reports today released by Energy Networks Australia has found.

Building on the landmark Gas Vision 2050, a new study by Deloitte Access Economics assesses how these technologies can be harnessed in Australia to meet our energy needs in a decarbonised future.

“Our nation’s gas networks are a colossal system, delivering just as much energy as the electricity network, and in some cases, such as Victoria, even more,” said Andrew Dillon, Energy Networks Australia CEO.
