    Rinnai's continuous flow hot water service

The Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) and Rinnai Australia have launched a 100 per cent hydrogen continuous flow domestic hot water service in Australia.

The Rinnai appliance is for Australian conditions and is another key step on the journey to decarbonise gas.

AGIG CEO, Craig de Laine, said the innovative appliance showcases the future of gas appliances in Australia.

“We are delivering the low carbon future of gas supply,” he said.

“Using our existing gas networks to deliver renewable gas, including renewable hydrogen and biogas, is key to decarbonising energy use in Australia in a low cost, stable, reliable and practical way.

“We have delivered a world-class gas distribution system in Victoria as a result of our mains replacement program, which ensures we can supply renewable gas to homes and businesses.

“Ensuring our appliances can use hydrogen is the final part of the puzzle. Industry needs a policy mandate for all appliances installed in Australia to be hydrogen-ready to ensure we deliver a seamless low carbon transition for the state of Victoria and Australia more broadly.”

AGIG is developing a demonstration house called HyHome in Victoria, which will showcase a range of hydrogen appliances including cooktops, hot water systems, heaters and a barbecue, all powered by 100 per cent hydrogen.

The launch was attended by AGIG and Rinnai executives, the Victorian Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, Lily D’Ambrosio, and former chief scientist, Dr Alan Finkel.
