Green Hydrogen

Green hydrogen serves as a crucial tool for decarbonizing challenging industries like chemicals, agriculture, steel, and mobility which are historically hard to decarbonize, presenting a transformative opportunity for South Asian countries.

National Green Hydrogen Mission Outline

The Government of India has launched the Green Hydrogen Mission. The mission’s objective is to make India the global hub for production, usage and export of Green Hydrogen and its derivatives. It will contribute to India’s aim to become Aatmanirbhar through clean energy and serve as an inspiration for the global Clean Energy Transition. The Mission will lead to significant decarbonization of the economy, reduced dependence on fossil fuel imports, and enable India to assume technology and market leadership in Green Hydrogen.
