India Awards Tenders for 4.12 Lakh Tonnes of Green Hydrogen and 1500 MW Electrolyzer Manufacturing

In a significant stride towards renewable energy adoption, India has unveiled the National Green Hydrogen Mission (NGHM), aimed at catapulting the nation into a global hub for green hydrogen production, usage, and export. Spearheaded by the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy and Power, the mission boasts an impressive outlay of ₹19,744 crores.

Under this initiative, pivotal tenders have been awarded, marking crucial milestones in the mission’s implementation. The tender for Green Hydrogen Producers selection, facilitating the establishment of production facilities with a total capacity of 4,12,000 tons per annum, was granted to 10 deserving companies. Simultaneously, following 8 companies secured the tender for Electrolyser Manufacturers, set to erect manufacturing capacities totaling 1,500 MW per annum.

Additionally, scheme guidelines for modes 2A and 2B, emphasizing aggregation models for Green Ammonia and Green Hydrogen, were notified, fostering further expansion.

Acknowledging the significance of regional development, the mission identifies and nurtures regions capable of supporting large-scale hydrogen production and utilization, earmarking two Green Hydrogen hubs for establishment. Notably, the Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways has identified three major ports—Deendayal, Paradip, and V.O. Chidambaranar (Tuticorin)—to be developed as hydrogen hubs, further bolstering India’s green energy infrastructure.

Furthermore, to accelerate adoption in specific sectors, pilot projects for utilizing Green Hydrogen in the Shipping Sector are set to materialize following the issuance of scheme guidelines. These initiatives underscore India’s commitment to embracing sustainable energy practices and positioning itself as a pivotal player in the global Green Hydrogen market.

In a complementary move, the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) has paved the way for a gas-based economy through the establishment of gas trading exchanges. Indian Gas Exchange Limited (IGX), authorized as the first gas exchange, facilitates transparent and efficient gas trading, bolstering the availability and distribution of natural gas across the nation.

With these concerted efforts, the NGHM aims to achieve a monumental Green Hydrogen production capacity of 5 million metric tons per annum by 2030, signifying India’s unwavering commitment to a cleaner, greener future.

The Union Minister for New & Renewable Energy and Power, Shri R. K. Singh, shared these updates in written replies to queries posed in the Rajya Sabha, underscoring the government’s proactive approach towards sustainable energy transitions.
