Mr. Bhalla shared that the conference will also discuss green financing, human resource upskilling and startup initiatives in this area. “Electrolyzer production capacity in the world is very limited, this capacity has to come up in India. And for this, it is important that we learn and adopt the appropriate technology for electrolyzer manufacturing as well as for various individual components of the manufacturing process. Through this process, we are creating a platform where experts can talk about various steps of the value chain so that we can learn from others; this would comprise not only production but also marketing and collaborations,” he shared. As stated by Mr. Bhalla, nearly 48 projects on green hydrogen or green ammonia have been publicly announced in India. “A lot of them are talking about green ammonia, which totals to the production of around 3.5 million metric tonnes per annum of green hydrogen. There is a lot of traction from the industry, as far as green hydrogen opportunity is concerned,” he said.
