This issue brief presents the case for natural gas pyrolysis as an alternative method of hydrogen production. Incumbent ‘grey’ hydrogen production by steam methane reformation (SMR) inherently produces process CO₂ emissions, as the carbon in natural gas is converted to CO₂.

Hydrogen technology development is shifting towards low-emissions solutions such as electrolysis, according to this joint study of patents by the European Patent Office (EPO) and the International Energy Agency (IEA).

The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has approved National Green Hydrogen Mission. The initial outlay for the Mission will be Rs.19,744 crore, including an outlay of Rs.17,490 crore for the SIGHT programme, Rs.1,466 crore for pilot projects, Rs.400 crore for R&D, and Rs.

The purpose of this report is to provide the technical background of processes of renewable hydrogen production and its applications in key sectors and discusses factors which will determine the costs reductions for the commercialisation of renewable hydrogen to reach economies of scale.

This Paper proposes eight principles of a rules-based architecture for decarbonised hydrogen.

The Government of Uttar Pradesh in October 2022, notified the Uttar Pradesh Green Hydrogen Policy to promote growth and employment in the state while prioritising decarbonisation and the state’s contribution to India’s climate goals. The policy shall promote green hydrogen/ammonia production, market creation, and demand aggregation.

The study at hand aims at proposing a preliminary framework that encourages the deployment of green hydrogen in three preselected African countries. The three countries were selected in consultation with the African Development Bank (AfDB) after screening 29 African member countries under the Climate Investment Fund (CIF).

A new report released by NITI Aayog highlights that green hydrogen can substantially spur industrial decarbonisation and economic growth for India in the coming decades.

The Ministry of Power notified green hydrogen policy, which will help in meeting the target of production of 5 million tonnes of Green hydrogen by 2030 and the related development of renewable energy capacity. Hydrogen and Ammonia are envisaged to be the future fuels to replace fossil fuels.

India’s National Hydrogen Mission, launched in August 2021, seeks to scale up renewable electrolysis hydrogen (“green” hydrogen) production and use it in multiple sectors, including transportation. This is encouraging, as green hydrogen offers significant decarbonization potential.
