Govt notifies Green Hydrogen Policy for production of Green Hydrogen or Green Ammonia using renewable sources of energy
Ministry of Power has notified Green Hydrogen/Green Ammonia Policy for production of Green Hydrogen or Green Ammonia using renewable sources of energy. Hydrogen and Ammonia are envisaged to be the future fuels to replace fossil fuels.
Production of these fuels by using power from renewable energy, termed as green hydrogen and green ammonia, is one of the major requirements towards environmentally sustainable energy security of the nation.
The government is taking various measures to facilitate the transition from fossil fuel and fossil fuel-based feed stocks to green hydrogen and green ammonia. The notification of this policy is one of the major steps in this endeavour.
The implementation of this policy will provide clean fuel to the common people of the country. This will reduce dependence on fossil fuel and also reduce crude oil imports.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the National Hydrogen Mission on India’s 75th Independence Day last year. The Mission aims to aid the government in meeting its climate targets and making India a green hydrogen hub.
This will help in meeting the target of production of 5 million tonnes of Green hydrogen by 2030 and the related development of renewable energy capacity.
