Green hydrogen will be useful wherever renewable electricity is not a substitute for fossil fuels. For shipping, aviation, long-distance heavy-duty trucks, manufacturing of fertilisers, cement and steel, it can be the substitute for fossil fuels and the way to net zero. But, for railways, automobiles and other sectors that can be run on electricity, we do not need it, says Mr Ajay Shankar, Former Secretary to the Government of India and Distinguished Fellow, TERI.

Green Hydrogen cost of $1 per Kg is possible in India- Vibha Dhawan, DG, TERI. In an interview, Director General of TERI, Dr Vibha Dhawan talks about some of the most crucial issues in the energy sector currently - impact of Russia-Ukraine war on energy transition, pace of renewable energy capacity creation in India, the country's "coal phase-down" strategy, the perennial issue of air pollution and the way ahead for the hydrogen economy.
Green hydrogen is the means to an end, not an end in itself

Green hydrogen, hydrogen made from renewables, has the potential to provide solutions for decarbonisation of other hard to abate industrial sectors which are not amenable to electrification. Green hydrogen is made from renewable electricity and is necessarily more expensive than electricity. Its potential use, therefore, lies where electricity cannot replace fossil fuels. In a far-sighted move, India has launched an ambitious Hydrogen Mission.

With a renewable energy target of 500GW for 2030 and net zero by 2070, India could become a hydrogen hub as it is a promising opportunity. For a developing country like India, affordability is a huge factor. Therefore, while targets are there, we need to define the roadmap, says Mr Ajay Shankar, Distinguished Fellow, TERI.
