Boundary Power is excited to announce the success of a recent application to the Victorian Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Commercialisation Pathways Fund.

Our successful application will enable our Renewable Hydrogen Stand-alone Power System (SAPS) Demonstration Project which will deliver a  demonstration SAPS plant that will convert solar power into hydrogen and use that hydrogen to generate electricity during power outages or in remote areas that are not served by the grid. A first-of-a-kind plant in Australia.

Boundary Power Director, Rod Henderson said this was an exciting outcome for Boundary Power, in a time when Hydrogen is showing such promise.

“Adapting our award-winning Solar Qube SAPS that is a one of its kind thanks to its ability to be deployed in under 90 minutes, by adding the technology for creating Renewable Hydrogen, will take this existing product to a new level,’’

“To be able to support our remote communities, those with power loss, and our community of emergency services in significant and challenging situations with advancing technology is incredibly important,” Henderson said.

The project will be delivered by Boundary Power in alignment with CapTech, a subsidiary company of our parent company Ampcontrol. CapTech’s extensive power quality solutions experience and knowledge will further enhance the strength of the project.

“It is encouraging and exciting to see the acceleration of hydrogen power solutions and the support for innovation in renewable energy across the country”. Henderson continued.

The Renewable Hydrogen Commercialisation Pathways Fund has been established to support six projects that will see Victoria produce and use renewable hydrogen in real-world applications.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio commented that “Victoria’s support for the renewable hydrogen sector will create new jobs while we drive down emissions across our economy by funding the infrastructure and innovation required to accelerate this change.”
