Decarbonisation is set to become easier in hard-to-abate sectors, thanks to two new hydrogen hub projects in regional New South Wales.
Supported by $64 million in funding from the state government announced last month, a 10MW electrolyser near Port Kembla and a 12MW electrolyser near Moree are due to be constructed.
The project near Port Kembla plans to produce green hydrogen to support at least four refuelling stations and up to 40 hydrogen powered buses and trucks in the region. The second project in Moree intends to convert green hydrogen into green ammonia, which would be used to fertilise cotton and other farms across the region.
The project near Port Kembla aims to scale up to 650MW of electrolyser capacity in the long term to support decarbonisation of local steel, glass, and cement production, while the Moree project plans to expand by another 100MW of capacity in the locality
to supply fertiliser to farms in the surrounding region.
The funding is one of the key actions of the New South Wales. Hydrogen Strategy, which sets a target of reducing costs to less than $2.80 per kilogram by 2030.
