What could be expected from India’s Green Hydrogen Mission?
The Union Cabinet approved the National Green Hydrogen Mission in January.
India’s National Green Hydrogen Mission is expected to result in the country’s green hydrogen production reaching five million tonnes annually which are seen to reduce around (INR1t) of fossil fuel imports by 2030.
Aside from this, the production and use of the targeted quantum of green hydrogen will also avoid nearly 50 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, according to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.
The Union Cabinet in January approved the Nationa Green Hydrogen Mission which aims to make India a global hydrogen hub.
The components of the mission include facilitating demand creation through exports and domestic utilisation, pilot projects for steel, mobility, and shipping, development of green hydrogen hubs, and establishing a framework of regulations and standards, amongst others.
