Bristol Springs hydrogen project has potential

The Bristol Springs hydrogen project in Western Australia has the potential to be an early adopter and low-cost green hydrogen generator, according to a pre-feasibility study (PFS).

The research is predicated on the construction of a green hydrogen production plant in Bristol Springs, based on a 114 MW solar farm, according to Frontier Energy’s statement.

According to the PFS, the Bristol Springs project could generate about 4.4 million kilos of hydrogen annually for a price of about A$2.83 per kilogram. The low cost takes into account Bristol Springs’ already-existing infrastructure, which will reduce the construction cost and enable extra cash to be made through the sale of surplus energy and reserve capacity credits.
