With an aim to play a pivotal role in India’s adoption of the hydrogen economy, NTPC has invited firms to set up two hydrogen fuel cell-based pilot projects at its plant premises.

Thus, the state-owned firm has “floated a global Expression of Interest (EOI) to set up two pilot projects, Standalone Fuel-Cell based backup power system and a standalone fuel-cell based microgrid system with hydrogen production using electrolyser at NTPC premises.”

Through these projects, India’s largest integrated power generating company is looking to further strengthen its footprint in green and clean fuel.

The company said that, it will collaborate for the implementation and further commercialization of the projects.

The move is in line with NTPC’s initiatives towards adopting Hydrogen technologies. It has already started a pilot for making methanol integrating carbon captured from power plant flue gas and hydrogen from electrolysis.

NTPC in a statement said that this is a potential solution towards “Aatmanirbhar Bharat” in the field of carbon capture and green hydrocarbon synthesis.

By taking this initiative forward, the company has been exploring use of Hydrogen based Fuel Cells-Electrolyser systems for backup power requirement.

Currently, the backup power requirement and micro grid applications have been met from diesel-based power generators.

Looking at these as early adopter use case of Hydrogen-based technologies, the company has been working towards creating solutions which are a green alternative to Diesel Generators.
