According to a statement from the PHD Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Greenstat Hydrogen India Pvt Ltd has joined as a knowledge partner and the industry wants to establish the center of excellence at its headquarters in New Delhi. According to the statement, Greenstat has more than 100 years of experience in hydrogen generation, storage, transportation, and end-use applications.
The center will offer training and workshops, as well as research best practices from around the world, standards, and laws, safety, technological partnerships, consultation, a data bank, and accident auditing, among other things.
A comprehensive green hydrogen mission is now in development, and the idea for a center of excellence is timely. The government unveiled the green hydrogen policy in February, promising more affordable renewable energy, waivers of interstate power transmission fees for 25 years for projects started before June 2025, land in renewable energy parks, and mega manufacturing zones to support local industries in reducing their reliance on fossil fuels.
Along with easing the storage of green power, the policy aims to encourage green hydrogen and green ammonia while also assisting green power producers in storing excess power with electricity distribution firms for up to 30 days. Additionally, the construction of bunkers for storing and exporting green ammonia is contemplated.
India has had a significant push on the policy and industry fronts since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the National Green Hydrogen Mission in August 2021.
The green hydrogen mission is anticipated to offer production-related incentives for the creation of electrolyzers and green hydrogen.
In an electrolyzer, water is broken down to produce green hydrogen. Hydrocarbons can then be avoided by combining hydrogen with nitrogen to create ammonia. Energy is stored in green ammonia, which is also produced when fertilizer is made. By 2030, India wants to produce 5 million tonnes of green hydrogen. The Center intends to increase green hydrogen-based energy by 175 GW during the following ten years.
