India Eyes East Asia for Green Hydrogen Exports

29 May 2024

India has its sights set on becoming a green hydrogen leader, and they're looking towards East Asia to make it happen!

Green Hydrogen: The Future of Clean Energy

  • Hydrogen Power on the Rise:  Hydrogen is being buzzed about as a clean energy alternative, especially for industries like steel and transportation.

  • Green vs. Grey: There's a catch - most hydrogen today is "grey," made from fossil fuels. India is going all-in on "green" hydrogen, produced using renewable energy sources.

India's Green Hydrogen Mission

  • Making Green Hydrogen Affordable:  The Indian government is investing heavily to bring down the cost of green hydrogen production.

  • Challenges at Home:  While India consumes a lot of hydrogen, most factories already have their own production, making it tough to create a domestic market for green hydrogen yet.

East Asia: A Golden Opportunity

  • Japan and South Korea to the Rescue:  These countries are keen on green hydrogen but lack the space for large-scale renewable energy production.

  • India Steps Up as a Supplier:  India's focus on green hydrogen positions them perfectly to fill the gap for these East Asian giants.

  • India's Competitive Edge:  Other countries might be looking at "clean" hydrogen made with fossil fuels and carbon capture, but India's commitment to 100% green hydrogen is a major advantage.

Building Bridges for Green Hydrogen Trade

  • Learning from the Best:  India is collaborating with Japan and South Korea to establish clear trading standards for green hydrogen.

  • Strategic Hub Locations:  To minimize transport costs, India is looking to set up green hydrogen hubs on the East Coast, closer to potential East Asian buyers.

  • Collaboration is Key:  The Indian government is creating a platform to bring together businesses and investors to make green hydrogen a reality.

India's green hydrogen push is a strategic move with global implications. By becoming a major green hydrogen exporter, they can not only clean up their own energy sector but also help power a more sustainable future for all of Asia.
