Gas Vision 2050 Released
Klaas van Alphen last week attended the launch of Gas Vision 2050 at Parliament House in Canberra. Australia’s gas industry has launched a vision that shows gas will play a key part in the energy mix until 2050.
Gas Vision 2050 was developed by Australia’s peak gas industry bodies and demonstrates how gas can continue to provide Australians with reliable and affordable energy in a low-carbon energy future.
The vision was presented to the Minister for the Environment and Energy, Josh Frydenberg, and the Minister for Resources and Northern Australia, Matt Canavan.
Energy Networks Australia Gas Committee Chairman Ben Wilson said Australia’s gas supply and infrastructure should be a national advantage as our energy mix continues to evolve.
The vision shows how three transformational technologies – biogas, hydrogen and carbon capture and storage – could provide new zero-emission and low-emission fuels that can deliver power to Australian homes, businesses and vehicles using the existing network.
The Energy Pipelines CRC is currently engaged by Energy Networks Australia to undertake a study into the technical, regulatory and commercial issues that may arise when injection biogas and hydrogen into gas networks.
