With an aim to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen technologies in the country, policy research think-tank The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) have entered into a research partnership with Greenstat Hydrogen India Pvt Ltd (Greenstat).

The move will be focused on setting up of a Norwegian Centre of Excellence on Hydrogen in India.

Greenstat Hydrogen India Pvt Ltd is a Norwegian energy company with a specific focus on green hydrogen, solar, wind, and zero emission maritime solutions.

Further, the joint partnership agreement, in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), covers policy and research activities including - collaboration on the establishment of a Norwegian Centre of Excellence on Hydrogen in India; and Knowledge-sharing to support the development of hydrogen technologies in India.

Also, this will build upon TERI’s existing research on hydrogen in India, which most recently included a policy brief titled ‘Make Hydrogen in India’, with a more detailed report coming out in late 2020.

Commenting on the partnership, Sturle Pedersen, Chairman, Greenstat Hydrogen India, said that, “together with TERI, we are launching an initiative that will put India at the forefront of hydrogen globally. The Centre of Excellence on Hydrogen in India will be key to achieve the objectives of India’s international climate commitments and accelerate the energy transition. This Centre of Excellence offers opportunities throughout the entire green hydrogen chain to fulfill the aspirations and our ambitions to reduce CO2 emissions and deliver more and cleaner energy.”

“TERI looks forward to this partnership with Greenstat to help accelerate the pace of the energy transition in India. Hydrogen technologies are crucial for the decarbonisation of India’s energy system as well as reducing energy imports – making them a win-win proposition,” said Girish Sethi, Senior Director, Energy Programme, TERI.

Greenstat’s vision is ‘to make green happen’, and to achieve this, the company along with its subsidiaries focuses upon different business areas that will contribute to fulfill it’s vision.

Meanwhile, the company’s activities are mainly focussed upon developing and operating projects related to sustainable energy and technology, hereunder projects supporting the transition from fossil fuel to renewable energy production and consumption, in addition to participating and investing in companies contributing fully or partly to this end.
