India’s National Green Hydrogen Mission: net-zero emissions by 2070

  • India has set a goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2070
  • A shift towards renewable energy sources is necessary to reduce reliance on fossil fuels as the country’s demand for energy and resources grows
  • Green hydrogen (GH2) is a promising renewable energy carrier that can play a vital role in India’s low-carbon and self-reliant economic pathways
  • GH2 is produced through the electrolysis of water powered by renewable energy and is renewable and carbon-free
  • GH2 is versatile and can be used as a combustion fuel, as feedstock for industrial processes, and converted back into electricity in a fuel cell
  • GH2 can be more easily stored and transported over long distances compared to grid renewable electricity
  • The National Green Hydrogen Mission aims to make India the global hub for production, usage, and export of green hydrogen and its derivatives
  • The mission aims to build capabilities to produce at least 5 Million Metric Tonne (MMT) of green hydrogen per annum by 2030, with the potential to reach 10 MMT per annum with growth of export markets
  • Sourcing green hydrogen currently involves significant costs, but the costs of production are expected to decrease as the sector evolves.
