Hydrogen Park Gladstone

This project involves the blending of renewable hydrogen with natural gas, at volumes of up to 10%, for supply into the city of Gladstone’s gas network.

Main proponents:

Australian Gas Networks (AGN), part of the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG)

Main end-use classification:

Hydrogen in gas networks, potential for use in mobility applications


Under construction – operations anticipated in the first quarter of 2024

Estimated cost:

AUD$6.48 million

Other involvement:


Production details:

Hydrogen production – Approximately 65 kilograms per day (electrolyser capacity)


Queensland, Australia

Announced funding:

AUD$2.72 million – Queensland Government Hydrogen Industry Development Fund

Project description

Hydrogen Park Gladstone would produce renewables-based hydrogen using a 175-kilowatt (kW) Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyser.

Renewable electricity would be sourced from the grid and matched with Large-scale Generation Certificates (LGCs) that would be procured and surrendered to ensure the electricity used to produce the hydrogen is renewable. Water for the electrolyser would be supplied through the Gladstone Regional Council Water Network.

The renewables-based 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.

Hydrogen storage capacity is at 10 kilograms onsite. It is estimated the project would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 57 tonnes per annum.

Site selection and detailed engineering has been completed with the project receiving Development Approval in April 2023 from the Gladstone Ports Corporation for its site location in Gladstone.

In October 2023, AGIG announced the start of construction of Hydrogen Park Gladstone.

The project is supported by AUD$2.72 million from the Queensland Government’s Hydrogen Industry Development Fund.
