India’s green hydrogen initiative has been agreed upon by Fusion Fuel Green and BGR Energy Systems. They will establish related facilities in Tamil Nadu, a south Indian state, this year.
The aim is to expand green hydrogen plan in the country.
Fusion Fuel Green, with offices in Portugal and Ireland, will provide Tamil Nadu’s plant with technology to produce hydrogen from solar energy.
The plant will apply the generated hydrogen in heavy industrial processes.
Blue hydrogen, despite its green version, comes from hazardous fossil fuels. Highly-expensive to generate, the green hydrogen supplied only 0.1% of the hydrogen produced in the world in the last year, as stated by Wood Mackenzie.
India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, talked of starting a “National Hydrogen Energy Mission” last year. The mission to produce hydrogen from renewable energy resources is underway in the years 2021 to 2022.
