Jemena Gas license for hydrogen blending Alternative formats available on request to PIAC - Contact PIAC
PIAC made a submission on the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal’s (IPART) consultation on an application by Jemena Gas mix hydrogen through its existing fossil gas distribution system. PIAC does not support the application as we consider mixing hydrogen into gas networks is costly, risky and slows decarbonisation.
PIAC contends hydrogen blending is an understandable but problematic attempt by gas networks to maintain the usefulness of their assets in the face of electrification and decarbonisation. It is not in the interests of consumers and PIAC is opposed to consumers being required to pay for or bear the risk for such projects.
