Indo-German International Conference on 'Metrology for the Deployment of Green Hydrogen and Renewable Fuels in India'
From 4th April to 6th April 2022
Hydrogen, being a highly flammable gas, poses technical challenges, both system and process related. Therefore, its accurate measurements, correct billing, good metrological standards, adequate human and technical capacities, as well as a sound safety infrastructure design are required. Safety, efficiency, and sustainability of the green hydrogen sector can only be achieved with reliable quality infrastructure services in place, including a sufficient awareness of the critical safety and quality issues. Currently, these services are not available in India and are yet to gain prominence worldwide.
The conference targets the actors involved in the production, transportation, storage, and usage of green hydrogen, including forging the infrastructure service for the sustainable development of the Green Hydrogen sector in India. It will thus contribute in building a robust base for the achievement of India’s Hydrogen Mission. In the short term, the participants will benefit from an increased awareness of the relevance of quality assurance in the green hydrogen sector. In the mid-term, the hydrogen industry will benefit from improved access to QI services. This will lead to the mitigation of hydrogen related accidents and transparent billing, thus improving consumer protection.
Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) Germany, in partnership with The Energy and Resources Instiute (TERI), Goa University (GU), and other Indian Partners is organizing an Indo-German International Conference from the 4th to 6th April 2022.
The conference will provide clarity about key stakeholders in the Indian hydrogen sector on a political, economic, and societal level, and the demand for capacity development measures in the field of quality infrastructure services. It will increase awareness of the relevance of quality infrastructure services for the sustainable development of the sector, and based on the existing demand, piloting of capacity development measures with a focus on metrology and process safety.
