    • Successful trials demonstrate three times higher efficiency compared to diesel.

    • Reliance has indigenously developed the hydrogen ICE technology.

  • National Green Hydrogen Mission:

    • India's government supports pilot projects for green hydrogen in shipping.

    • Retrofitting of ships and green ammonia bunkering facilities planned.

    • Aims to decarbonize the maritime sector and identify key challenges.

  • Global Green Hydrogen Collaboration:

    • Airbus, Avinor, SAS, Swedavia, and Vattenfall partner for hydrogen infrastructure at airports.

    • Study forecasts 1.7 million new green jobs across Europe by 2040.

    • Partnerships and innovation drive progress towards a hydrogen-powered future.

Looking Ahead:

Reliance's initiative, coupled with India's National Green Hydrogen Mission and global collaborations, signifies a paradigm shift towards cleaner transportation. This transition to green hydrogen holds immense potential for environmental benefits, economic growth, and job creation. As technology advances and costs decrease, we can expect to see widespread adoption of green hydrogen across various sectors, paving the way for a more sustainable future.
