The roadmap to green hydrogen remains unclear

One of the components of the National Green Hydrogen Mission Document is strategic interventions for green hydrogen transition, where ₹17,490 crore is to be allocated for domestic producers of electrolysers and green hydrogen.

Given the urgency in the energy transition, more details need to be provided to relevant stakeholders.

The mission envisages development of green hydrogen hubs based on regions having proximity to refineries/fertiliser plants. However, it will be prudent to finalise these locations taking into account ready availability of water, which in itself is a challenging proposition.
