Hydrogen potential for local gas networks in SA and Victoria

Further traction  for hydrogen as blending with natural with natural gas is further explored ...'The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has today announced $1.28 million in funding to Australian Gas Networks Limited (AGN), part of Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG), to establish the Australian Hydrogen Centre which will investigate blending hydrogen into natural gas pipelines in South Australia and Victoria.'

I'm eager to track these type of initiatives, with direct heat from gas being a bigger hurdle than most think. 

What's the expected blend of green vs. blue hydrogen generation in Australia in the coming years?

Hi Matt ....,’As part of the project, the Australian Hydrogen Centre will explore the feasibility of blending 10 per cent hydrogen into the existing natural gas networks in regional towns that will be selected during the study, including the potential coupling of gas networks with electricity transmission networks.’

Doesnt seem overly ambitious given Keele, an hour down the road from me, are mentioning 20% - albeit on a more localised network. Still, it may  be a useful next step.
