State-run NTPC has floated a global Expression of Interest (EoI) to set up a pilot project on Hydrogen Blending with Natural Gas in City Gas Distribution (CGD) Network in India.

The EoI has been followed by the recent tenders floated by NTPC REL for green hydrogen fuelling station at Leh and NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Ltd (NVVN) for procurement of fuel cell buses.

Moreover, a dedicated 1.25 MW solar power plant is also being set up at Leh by NTPC REL to power the hydrogen fuelling station.

The company said that, this pilot project on hydrogen blending with natural gas will be the first of its kind in India and would explore the viability of decarbonizing India’s natural gas grid.

NTPC further added that it is keen on playing a key role in India’s transition to hydrogen economy would later take this up at a commercial scale across India.

The successful execution of the pilot will also demonstrate the decarbonization objective along with import substitution aim under the government’s ‘AatmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan’.

Besides, the company is also keenly exploring production of green ammonia to decarbonize the fertilizer industry and possibly fulfil government’s upcoming mandate of using certain percentage of green hydrogen in fertilizer and refinery sector.

Meanwhile, the detailed study on green methanol production at Ramagundam has been completed and the company is expected to take final investment decision in the near future, the company added.
