Gujarat plans green hydrogen policy

Having set a target to produce 60 per cent of the country’s green hydrogen by 2030, Gujarat is working on launching a “green hydrogen policy” and is simultaneously working on pilot projects for blending hydrogen with Piped Natural Gas (PNG) in the state.

The Gujarat government is already working on pilot projects to blend green hydrogen with PNG. Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC) is working with Gujarat Power Corporation Ltd (GPCL) for a green hydrogen blending project in North Gujarat.

GSPC is also planning a similar green hydrogen-PNG blending project with NTPC in Surat, while GPCL is in talks with ONGC for a green hydrogen project at Mehsana, official sources said.

According to the Gujarat government, the state will require an estimated ₹20 billion investment by 2030 for setting up just 1 MMPTA of green hydrogen capacity. “We are still studying about the cost and capacities of electrolysers which will be key in these projects,” the official added.
