NEW DELHI: The Centre’s ‘Hydrogen Mission’ aims to push India towards decarbonising in sectors like refineries, fertilizer, and long-distance transport, and will make the country the cheapest producer and exporter of green hydrogen and the cheapest manufacturer of electrolyzers, said Amitabh Kant, G20 Sherpa on the Inaugural day of India Energy Week.
He said India is climatically blessed; it is using its renewable energy to become a global champion in green hydrogen.
It is also working on electric mobility as two-wheelers, three-wheelers, and four-wheelers would require batteries, he said, adding that major progress has been made towards 100 percent electrification of two-wheelers and three-wheelers.
“The market is now taking over, and I’m quite sure that in the next five years, India will be 100 percent electric as far as two-wheelers and three-wheelers are concerned. That is the big story of India that India has really, really pushed for behavioral change,” Kant said. On the thread initiative e20, he said the uniforms made with plastic bottle waste and solar cooking systems are all path-breaking initiatives to harness the solar strength of the country.
“We’ve been able to provide LPG connections to every single woman of India and change her life. Women-led development is a very major focus during our G20 presidency, and that is what we are driving at,” he added.
