The govt has made a good start on the energy transition; it should now move fast on implementation guidelines. The national green hydrogen mission, a key project for ensuring energy transition, is also the cornerstone of India's climate action targets for 2030 and the 2070 'Net Zero' goal. According to TERI estimates, by 2030, green hydrogen will become increasingly competitive, coinciding with a decline in electrolyser costs and the increasing load factors of solar plants.
