India plans to manufacture five million tonnes of green hydrogen per annum by 2030 and not just meet its own climate objectives, but become a production and export hub for the clean fuel.
Some sources question a lack of detail over the wider ecosystem while others still point to the country’s reliance on coal power.
Yet, the world’s third-largest energy consuming country is already embracing renewable energy, its solar power sector is moving forward, and data suggests coal’s hold over India’s power sector is steadily loosening. The grid is already evolving.
Against this backdrop, H2 View has confirmed it is holding a Snap Summit on June 23 to address how the renewable energy powerhouse that is India can fast-track to true sustainability with green hydrogen.
Titled Hydrogen in India: Decarbonisation and the Hydrogen Path Forward, the event will be held via the interactive gasworld TV platform currently used for H2 View’s hugely successful webinars programme, and will comprise of three immersive panel sessions.
After an introductory opening keynote, the first panel session will focus on hydrogen mobility – on the road, on rail and in the skies. A subsequent session will explore how hydrogen can power both the grid and off-grid life and industry, and a third session will be devoted to inspirational panel discussion with established leaders in hydrogen.
Speakers will be announced in the coming days.

‘Exciting time in this space in India’
When it comes to hydrogen, Editorial Advisory Board member Ravin Mirchandani observed the multitude of projects underway in the country in a recent feature exclusively for H2 View/
“Australia was one of the first countries to recognise the impact that the coming hydrogen economy will have on coal and gas/hydrocarbon-based exports and moved quickly to position itself as a potential future leader in hydrogen exports. Many countries in the EU followed with their own hydrogen blueprints,” he explained.
“India came to the party a little later with the announcement of the National Hydrogen Mission in August 2021, and recently released its hydrogen policy in February 2022, aimed at positioning India squarely in the centre of the hydrogen economy. The opportunity to reduce dependence on oil imports and to create a potential export economy at the same time is the central focus of this policy.”
Continuing to set the scene, he added, “Industry has woken up to hydrogen as well and there have been a raft of announcements of impending investments by major oil and energy companies in India to create green hydrogen generation capacity, acquire companies and technology for electrolysers and fuel cells, micro grid projects and even hydrogen-based public transportation. It is an exciting time to be in this space in India.”
Join H2 View and a programme of global hydrogen leaders to unlock answers and insights for the short, medium and long-term future in India.
All attendees in India receive six-month access to H2 View content online as part of a ticket to the Snap Summit, furthering H2 View’s commitment to sharing the key knowledge, insights and updates necessary to drive forward the hydrogen economy.
