Jemena aims for net zero emissions by 2050
Australian energy infrastructure company, Jemena, on April 30 announced its ambition to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
“Our net zero ambition represents an important opportunity to partner across the industry to create Australia’s new energy future,” said Jemena managing director Frank Tudor. “Our commitment will guide our business strategy and will help shape our future investments while ensuring our customers have access to energy services which are fit for the 21st century.”
Tudor said Jemena’s partnership approach has already informed the development of innovative projects in its portfolio including the Western Sydney green gas project – which is set to begin producing hydrogen for use in residential, storage, and transport settings later this year.
The Western Sydney green gas project will convert solar and wind power into hydrogen, which will then be stored for use across the Jemena gas network in New South Wales. Jemena has partnered with the Australian Renewable Energy Agency to develop and deliver the project.
“While we don’t have all the answers, we’re excited by the challenge before us and are well-positioned to meet it head-on,” Tudor said.
