In collaboration with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan and Toyota Tsusho, the project intends to study safety measures for the mass transportation of hydrogen through existing pipeline infrastructure.

H2 View understands the study will examine a hydrogen pipeline placed inside an existing pipe and buried underground, with factors including, leakage detection, control sequences, performance evaluation and abnormality verification, to be measured and contributed to the formulation of technical standards.

In addition, the study will look to verify the profitability of such projects, including transportation cost analysis, energy input, and economic efficiency.

According to the partners, it is hoped the project will also support the future supply of hydrogen to urban areas through pipelines and contribute to the development of smart cities.

The project is in accordance with New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation which seeks to research and develop the use and standardisation of hydrogen infrastructure.

H2 View’s Hydrogen in India – Snap Summit

With the launch of its national hydrogen strategy in recent weeks and growing interest in India’s bold ambitions to de-leverage from traditional fossil fuel-based energy, H2 View stages a Snap Summit to address the country’s path forward in hydrogen.

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.

The question is, how can a renewable energy powerhouse fast-track to true sustainability with green hydrogen? 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.
