AIE Perth | ATCO's Clean Energy Innovation Hub
Venue: ATCO Jandakot
Date: Mon 19 Aug 2019 @ 2:30pm t0 3:30pm AWST
ATCO’s $3.6 million Clean Energy Innovation Hub in Jandakot officially opened in July 2019 – and now AIE Perth Members have an exclusive opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the site!
The ARENA-supported research facility will be a test bed for the production, storage and use of hydrogen, as well as the commercial application of clean energy in micro-grid systems, demonstrating success by integrating with and supporting the electricity grid.
The Hub will integrate ‘green’ hydrogen created by water electrolysis – using solar energy to separate hydrogen molecules from water. The hydrogen will be captured and injected into a micro-grid system at the Jandakot facility.
Some of the safety and technical challenges that will be tackled by the project include optimising hydrogen storage solutions, blending hydrogen with natural gas and using hydrogen as a direct-use fuel.
The Clean Energy Innovation Hub will provide valuable insights into how Western Australia’s extensive existing gas distribution infrastructure can continue to benefit customers as part of the future energy mix.
Join the AIE Perth Branch for an exclusive opportuntiy to get a behind-the-scenes look at the ATCO Jandakot site.
This site visit will include a 30 minute presentation followed by 30 minute tour of the facility where we will visit:

Following the tour - Go to Berrigan Bar and Bistro for a sundowner, where AIE will provide some hospitality for those attending.
