Benefits of Renewable Gas

 

 

Whether it’s for endless hot water, heating or controlled cooking, natural gas plays a central role for over 6.5 million Australian homes and businesses. As Australia is reducing its energy emissions, AGN is leading the transition of the natural gas networks to renewable gas. With Renewable Gas, such as hydrogen and bio methane, the gas network will continue to deliver a clean, reliable energy for the appliances Australian’s love. 

Reliable supply for the appliances you love


Natural gas is already an important transitional energy as we move from coal based energy to a low emissions energy future. But our gas network has a critical long term role to play, delivering renewable gas to millions of homes and businesses across Australia, with the same reliability and convenience as natural gas does today.

In Australia, the gas networks provide almost as much energy as the electricity system. Without it, massive investment in the electricity network would be required to replace the energy delivered by the gas network for heating homes, hot water, cooking and commercial uses. 

 

Renewable Gas in the Home

 

Just like natural gas, renewable gas will be delivered to your home with the same exceptional reliability and safety record as the natural gas network, but when used for heating and cooking there are zero greenhouse gas emissions.

 

Just like natural gas does, renewable gas will power the gas appliances that give you

 

  • perfect control while cooking

  • instantaneous, controllable, never ending hot water

  • ducted home heating that doesn’t dry your eyes and skin

  • the beauty of a real flame fireplace

  • and never-ending supply for your BBQ, that won't run out at your next gathering

Hydrogen can be safely added to natural gas supplies at 10% by volume without changes to pipelines, appliances or regulations. Over time, and with modifications to the existing gas networks and appliances, hydrogen can completely replace natural gas for domestic cooking, heating and hot water.

 

Renewable Gas for Businesses

 

For most businesses, there will be no noticeable change when renewable gas is initially blended with natural gas. For our larger industrial users, AGN is researching possible impact that any differences in heating value may have on industrial processes.
