Project description

Hydrogen Park Gladstone (HyP Gladstone) would produce renewable hydrogen using water and renewable electricity from the local electricity grid, using a 175-kilowatt (kW) Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyser.

The renewable hydrogen would be blended with natural gas, at volumes of up to 10%, for supply to around 770 residential and business customers on Gladstone’s entire gas network. The project also aims to supply hydrogen for transportation uses in the future.

HyP Gladstone builds on the 5% blend to be supplied to homes from Hydrogen Park South Australia, and at up to 10% would be the highest volume of hydrogen delivered by an existing gas network in Australia.

Site selection and detailed engineering has been completed with the project receiving Development Approval in May 2023. Construction is expected to commence in June 2023, and the facility is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2023.


February 2020: The Queensland Government announces grant funding of up to AUD$1.78 million in support of the project.

May 2023: Development Approval received.
