International alliances and coalitions are important to meet the ambitious deployment of hydrogen technologies by 2040 / 2050, bringing together renewable and low-carbon hydrogen production, demand in industry, mobility and other sectors, and hydrogen.
With such alliances, India can build its hydrogen leadership similar to the International Solar Alliance for carbon neutrality. Global energy and industrial firms led by Indian private-sector conglomerate Reliance Industries (RIL) and US-based engineering company Chart Industries have already formed an energy transition coalition – the India H2 Alliance (IH2A) – to commercialize hydrogen technology and systems that will help develop a net-zero carbon pathway in India.
The session will focus on cooperative efforts that will help establish solutions for storing and transporting pressurized and liquefied hydrogen, in order to build a hydrogen economy and supply chain in India. It will also explore possibilities in blue and green hydrogen production & storage; transport powered by hydrogen fuel cells & other heavy duty transportation; hydrogen-use clusters including industrial clusters – specifically for steel, refineries, fertilizers, cement, ports and logistics.
