- India has a target of producing five million tonnes of green hydrogen by 2030.
- Mongabay-India’s eighth webinar on clean energy explored the feasibility of green hydrogen and its role in India’s transition to cleaner sources of energy.
- In the webinar, the panellists discussed touched upon the cost-competitiveness of green hydrogen and how it can be a game-changer for India’s automobile sector.
In the recent past, green hydrogen has emerged as an attractive and viable technology that has received tremendous support both from the government and the industry. It is turning out to be a key component of India’s ambitious renewable energy plan, even though India has a target of production of only five million tonnes of green hydrogen by 2030. The recent collaboration between the Indian government and the private sector is an apt example of the focus on the sector.
Mongabay-India’s eighth Clean Energy Talks webinar explored the feasibility of green hydrogen and its importance in India’s energy transition story. The panellists included Partha De, Chief Operating Officer, ACME Group, Shirish S Garud, Senior Fellow, TERI, Ashish Garg, Professor and Head, Department of Sustainable Energy Engineering, IIT-Kanpur. The webinar was moderated by Mayank Aggarwal, Contributing Editor, Mongabay-India.
In the webinar, the panellists discussed touched upon the cost-competitiveness of green hydrogen and how it can be a game-changer for India’s automobile sector. Through the webinar we also discussed how the industry is responding to green hydrogen, the challenges in employing this latest technology, and whether some of these challenges can be addressed by pointed interventions from stakeholders including the government.
Mongabay-India’s series of talks on clean energy will continue every month and will feature industry specialists, researchers and senior environment journalists. Sign up for our newsletter or follow us on social media @mongabayindia for updates on the next and future webinars.
