According to Hindu Business Line, the agreement will see green hydrogen, produced from a 1MW floating solar project, blended with PNG in order to decarbonise residential areas with cooking set to use the clean energy carrier.
This could be a key development in India’s hydrogen economy and could support the decarbonisation of households providing a basis for hydrogen to become more widely accepted.
It is initially expected that the percentage of hydrogen blended into the system will be around 5% and, after it is proved to be successful, it will be increased further.
Should this be regarded a successful project, it is likely further blending projects will be introduced to the country and also see an increase in production projects as demand for the clean energy carrier increases in the coming years.

Formed in April 2021, the Indian Hydrogen Alliance (IH2A) is dedicated to the creation of a hydrogen value-chain and economy in India as the country strives to achieve a target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2070, a goal which was laid out by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the COP26 climate summit.
Currently the third largest emitter of carbon dioxide in the world today, following China and the US, India needs to start moving now – and IH2A aims to greatly support this. An industry-led coalition of global and Indian companies, IH2A works with private sector partners, the government, and the public to ensure that costs of hydrogen production are brought down, and a local supply chain for hydrogen and industrial, power and transport sector demand is created.
