A newly formed partnership is hoping to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen technologies in India.

Greenstat Hydrogen India and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) have joined forces on the mission as part of an effort to reduce carbon emissions in the country and deliver cleaner energy.

The establishment of a Norwegian Centre of Excellence on Hydrogen in India will be constructed under a newly signed Memorandum of Understanding, as well as significant knowledge-sharing to support the development of new technologies.

Confirmed today (19th Feb), the partnership builds upon TERI’s existing research on hydrogen and India, which most recently included a policy brief titled ‘Make Hydrogen in India’, with a more detailed report released late 2020.

“Together with TERI, Greenstat Hydrogen India is launching an initiative that will put India at the forefront of hydrogen globally,” said Sturle Pedersen, Chairman, Greenstat Hydrogen India.

“The Centre of Excellence on Hydrogen in India will be key to achieve the objectives of India’s international climate commitments and accelerate the energy transition. This Centre of Excellence offers opportunities throughout the entire green hydrogen chain to fulfil the aspirations and our ambitions to reduce CO2 emissions and deliver more and cleaner energy.”

Girish Sethi, Senior Director, Energy Programme, TERI added, “TERI looks forward to this partnership with Greenstat to help accelerate the pace of the energy transition in India.”

“Hydrogen technologies are crucial for the decarbonisation of India’s energy system as well as reducing energy imports – making them a win-win proposition.”
