When compared to electricity from the grid, natural gas emissions are about 80% lower than Victoria’s electricity supply of which 75% comes from coal. But if we are to help meet Australia’s emissions reduction targets, we know we need to make natural gas even cleaner. That’s why we are working on changing gas, for good.
We are already transitioning our natural gas networks to Renewable Gas, with our Hydrogen Park South Australia facility, which is blending up to 5% renewable hydrogen into the gas network. You can read more about our Renewable Gas projects and plans here.
A reliable and convenient energy supply
