India starts blending hydrogen into City Gas Distribution network

As the country begins to ramp up hydrogen adoption and accelerate its decarbonization efforts, India has begun blending hydrogen into a City Gas Distribution (CGD) network.

The “first-of-its-kind” project in India, led by GAIL, could be a major breakthrough for India’s hydrogen industry, paving the way for more hydrogen blending projects across the country.

The hydrogen blended natural gas for the project will be delivered to Avantika Gas, which is based in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, where the blending project will take place.

GAIL began injecting grey hydrogen into Indore’s City Gate Station (CGS), with the intention of replacing it with green hydrogen once it became available and the viability of the blending was established.

This could be a game-changer for India’s hydrogen economy, resulting in higher demand for the clean energy carrier.

This pilot project is expected to aid in the development of a robust standard and regulatory framework in India to cover the aspects of injecting hydrogen into natural gas, as well as pave the way for the implementation of more similar projects in the future.
