President, PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Delhi
“PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI), a National Apex Chamber, established in 1905, has been relentlessly working for the socio-economic development of India and for promotion of Indian industry, trade and entrepreneurship across the globe. PHDCCI has been an active participant in the India Growth Story through its Advocacy Role with Government of India and State Governments. It is one of the Premier Chambers in India to have been accredited with “Diamond Grade” by NABET(QCI), at national and international level. PHDCCI is reaching out to more than 1,50,000 companies through its direct and indirect membership base, and has a special focus on the development of small and medium businesses.
I am extremely pleased to convey my appreciation to Dr. J.P Gupta, Chairman of PHDCCI Environment Committee, for conceiving, planning and executing the ‘International Climate Summit 2021: Powering India’s Hydrogen EcoSystem’. The summit is timely and important for the country in building India’s Hydrogen Economy, its policies and a roadmap for the future. Enabling regulatory framework is needed to give a boost to the Make in India initiative in production, supply chain and partnerships. Domestic opportunities for electrolysis and fuel cells storage, training and standards will certainly help in developing the hydrogen ecosystem in India.
I extend my warm welcome to all participants to ICS 2021 from all over the world, for useful discussions and joining hands to make our planet a better place to live for future generations.”
Self reliance in energy through Green Hydrogen
“As demand for energy rises worldwide, there is a growing need for tapping alternate energy sources that are not only greener, but also renewable and abundant in supply. Hydrogen is one such source that has a much
higher energy output per unit mass.
India’s advantage due to its geographical location, climate conditions and abundance of renewable sources of energy like solar, wind and hydro make it ideal for becoming the world’s cheapest hydrogen hub by 2050.”
