The future of the global energy system is deeply uncertain, and the choices that are made in the coming years will have enormous consequences for the future of the climate and, indeed, human civilization.

India’s national government has offered strong support for the development of green hydrogen as part of the clean energy transition. However, much of the actual progress in this transition will depend on subnational governments.

India’s US$2.1 billion push to transform it into a global green hydrogen powerhouse has received a strong response from large strategic investors in the country’s private sector, but the scheme can be further improved to attract start-ups and global players, according to this new joint report released by the Institute for Energy Economics and Fi

The Uttar Pradesh Cabinet has approved a green hydrogen policy and the establishment of 800 MW thermal power units. This marks a significant step in the state’s commitment to adopting green energy solutions and enhancing its power generation capacity through a combination of renewable and traditional sources.

The Government of Haryana on February 15, 2024, issued the Draft Haryana Green Hydrogen Policy -2024. The Objectives of the Policy are: a) To accelerate the development and adoption of Green Hydrogen and its derivatives as alternative fuel and feedstock sources in line with the National Green Hydrogen Mission.

The government issued scheme guidelines to support pilot projects based on the use of green hydrogen as fuel in buses, trucks and four-wheelers. The scheme will be implemented with a total budgetary outlay of Rs 496 crore till the financial year 2025-26, a statement by the Ministry of New Renewable Energy said.

Uttar Pradesh (UP) is set to implement a green hydrogen policy, emphasizing its commitment to promoting clean energy.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has published the R&D Roadmap for Green Hydrogen Ecosystem in India. This document was published on 13th October, 2023. One of the central pillars of the National Green Hydrogen Mission is the establishment of a supportive research and innovation ecosystem for green hydrogen within India.

The Breakthrough Agenda Report 2023 is an annual collaboration between the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the United Nations Climate Change High-Level Champions, focused on supporting stronger international collaboration to drive faster reductions in global greenhouse gas emissions.

The Global Hydrogen Review is an annual publication by the International Energy Agency that tracks hydrogen production and demand worldwide, as well as progress in critical areas such as infrastructure development, trade, policy, regulation, investments and innovation.
