Indiahas made the world’s largest expansion plan for renewable energy transition,with a target of 175GW of renewables by 2022 and 500 GW by 2030.

Thecountry is well-suited for Green Hydrogen production due to the low generationcosts of renewable electricity from abundantly available solar PV and windpower sources. The country aims to be among the world’s largest Green Hydrogen hubsand has plan for using the same across the sectors. It can also provide Indiathe energy security by reducing the ever-increasing energy import bill and apathway to green alternative for ‘hard-to-abate’ industries, like refineries,fertilisers, steel, and transport.

GreenHydrogen demand in India is estimated to grow up to 2.0 MMTPA by 2030 in linewith the nation’s Green Hydrogen Mission, which would call for investmentsupward of $60 billion.
