Decarbonising Australia’s gas distribution networks

Deloitte Access Economics was engaged by Energy Networks Australia to identify a practical approach for sustainably decarbonising gas distribution networks to provide low-emissions gas for direct use by Australian households and businesses.

Achieving net-zero emissions in the energy sector by any means will involve significant challenges and costs. Some of these challenges are already being seen in the debate around decarbonisation of electricity, where concerns about increased costs and reduced reliability have disrupted decarbonisation policy development.

Deloitte Access Economics was engaged by Energy Networks Australia (ENA) to identify a practical approach for sustainably decarbonise gas distribution networks to provide low-emissions gas for direct use by Australian households and businesses. This work will contribute to the ENA’s Gas Vision 2050 and inform the ENA’s broader research regarding the potential to decarbonise gas in Australia.
