Managing director Rohan Gillespie speaks to Beyond Zero radio about the launch of Southern Green Gas and its renewable methane project to make hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles.
Southern Green Gas are planning renewable methane projects to make hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles.
The recent partnership with APA Group is key to unlocking this opportunity. APA Group own and operate 15,000km of natural gas pipelines in Australia and existing gas transport infrastructure will get the fuel to customers.
“We’ve got access to all of Australia plus 40 countries globally” Rohan explains.
“Australia’s great and unique position is that we have fantastic sunlight and we’ve also got an LNG export industry. So not only is this brilliant for Australia, because it could displace diesel and petrol imports (we import about $30 billion of those fuels each year), this could also be a very significant export market”.
Many of Australia’s trading partners are at the forefront of introducing alternative fuels and have a mandate to reach renewable energy targets by 2030.
When asked about the limitation on this technology, Rohan said “There really are no bounds on how much we can produce because we have so much flat land, in high sunlight areas, near gas pipelines.”
