Green Hydrogen Energy: India plans to produce 5 million tonnes of green hydrogen by 2030

On 17 February, the Ministry of Power launched the first phase of the Green Hydrogen Policy as a first step to enable the hydrogen ecosystem.

According to the IOC, the GHP measures will reduce the cost of green hydrogen production by up to 50%.

It takes about 50 kWh of electricity to produce 1 kg of green hydrogen with an electrolyzer efficiency of 70%.

The Indian government has proposed to spend Rs 800 crore on green hydrogen energy production.

The Indian hydrogen market was valued at $50 million in 2017 and is expected to grow to $81 million by 2025.

According to reports, it is predicted that by 2050 the demand for green hydrogen will be 23 metric tonnes.

But by 2050, three-quarters of the hydrogen will be made from green sources.

Hydrogen energy is a type of clean energy that has a very wide range of applications.

Hydrogen is divided into three categories: 1. Green Hydrogen 2. Blue Hydrogen 3. Grey Hydrogen
