The new Gigafactory will target a capacity of 2GW which will also help to substitute 8% of India LNG imports.
This could greatly enhance the Indian hydrogen economy and provides a means to produce the clean energy carrier from the country’s abundance of renewable energy sources.
Targeting the production of pressurised alkaline technology provided by John Cockerill is well suited to large-scale hydrogen applications and, when coupled with Greenko’s technology, can produce the lowest levelised cost of hydrogen (LCOH).
This could be a crucial for India and its hydrogen ecosystem and will be enable the scaling of the industry with the electrolysers able to deliver hydrogen at 30 bars at the highest purity level.
Anil Chalamalasetty, CEO & Managing Director of Greenko, said, “Greenko is working towards re-industrialisation solutions for a low-carbon economy. We are partnering with a world-class technology partner in John Cockerill and will jointly develop large-scale green molecule projects in India, which will accelerate the creation of a hydrogen economy.
“This partnership will not only help curtail India’s energy imports; it will also facilitate a turnaround to enable energy exports. And it will strengthen India’s green hydrogen ambitions as part of a wider renewable energy program that will see India run the world’s largest energy transition program.”
Raphael Tilot, CEO of John Cockerill Renewables, said, “The fight against climate change is part of our mission, and this partnership with Greenko will enable us to contribute to India’s sub-continent emergence as a new green energy hub
“India and neighbouring countries have abundant natural resources, a large domestic market and the potential to cater to the growth of this market regionally and globally. On the human side, collaboration between Indian and Belgian team have made good progress and we are very confident on the future developments.”
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
