Hyundai signs new green hydrogen refuelling deal

Hyundai signs new green hydrogen refuelling deal

Hyundai has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with energy distribution company Jemena and gas supplier Coregas, which will produce and deliver hydrogen gas to the carmaker's headquarters in Australia.

The deal will make hydrogen gas generated from solar and wind power, available to the manufacturer - this will be produced at Jemena’s Western Sydney Green Gas project.

The Western Sydney Green Gas Project is a trial programme that converts solar and wind power into hydrogen gas via electrolysis, which is then stored for use across the Jemena Gas Network in New South Wales (NSW), 'the biggest' gas distribution network in Australia.

If the trial to power 250 homes and a hydrogen vehicle refuelling station is successful, the company plans to expand it across the NSW network.

As part of the agreement, Coregas will provide the compressor, pipework and connectors for filling and discharging hydrogen.

Jemena’s Managing Director, Frank Tudor said: "Our agreement with Hyundai and Coregas is an opportunity to demonstrate that renewably generated hydrogen gas can be made directly available to the vehicle and transport sectors."
