New Delhi: A report from NITI Aayog and Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) says that the need of hydrogen in the country will be four times higher in 2050.
Fifty two percent of this will be used for initiating the transportation of steel and heavy vehicles. As a nation that produces low cost renewable energy, India will attain top position among other green hydrogen producers. Green hydrogen will be available at the cost of grey hydrogen by 2030 and can reduce 3.6 gigaton of carbon dioxide during the period of 2030 – 50, says the report.
Green hydrogen can accelerate the green industrial revolution. NITI Aayog president Amitabh Kant clarified that this will make a revolution not only in India but also in the entire world. As the demand for hydrogen increases, the import of gas will also increase. Green carbon is essential to succeed in the nation’s path of zero carbon emission. Seventeen percent of the total energy consumption is being used in electricity and eighty three percent in coal, gas, oil refining, chemical fertilizers and long distance transportation, mentioned in the report.
Green hydrogen is a process that changes water molecules to hydrogen and oxygen. These are manufactured through an electrolytic process.
