Millions in Australian government funding for renewable methane, hydrogen, solar hydropower projects

May 17, 2020 |

From the land down under arrives news of millions pouring in for renewable energy – $1.1 million (about $700K USD) funding pouring into renewable methane, $3 million (nearly $2 million USD) for building a world-first solar hydropower plant, and $1.7 million (a little over $1 million USD) to look at scaling up renewable hydrogen for export, all thanks to the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) which has committed over $55 million ($35 million USD) towards hydrogen initiatives so far, including over $22 million ($14 million USD) to R&D projects, and almost $28 million (nearly $18 million USD) to demonstration, feasibility and pilot projects.

In today’s Digest, everything you need to know about the 3 ARENA projects – APA Group’s building of a modular renewable methane production demo plant that will then be injected into APA’s natural gas pipelines, RayGen Resources’s feasibility study for a 4MW ‘solar hydro’ power plant – the world’s first fully dispatchable renewable energy facility using solar PV technology with thermal hydro, and BP Australia’s feasibility study to build a renewable hydrogen and ammonia production facility and investigate producing renewable hydrogen using electrolysis.
