    Here’s an article posted in India Today.

    According to the article,

    • Mangalore’s land, infrastructure, and port make it ideal for green hydrogen projects.
    • The energy sector, particularly green hydrogen, has attracted significant investment in Karnataka.
    • At the ‘Invest Karnataka 2022’ meet, green hydrogen received nearly a third of the total investment, with nine proposals worth Rs 2.86 lakh crore.
    • This positions Mangalore as a potential location for the country’s first green hydrogen cluster.

    But Mangalore is not alone when it comes to its potential. There are quite a lot of places with similar potential and advantage for green hydrogen to set off. Some of these are:

    • Kandla, Gujarat
    • Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh
    • Kochi, Kerala
    • Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu
    • Vizag, Andhra Pradesh
    • Jamnagar, Gujarat

    These locations have the potential for green hydrogen development due to the following reasons:

    Deep dive into our work

    • Water Availability: Each of these locations has a significant water source, which is essential for the electrolysis process used to produce green hydrogen.
    • Infrastructure: Many of these locations have existing infrastructure, such as ports, which can facilitate the export of the produced hydrogen.
    • Industrial Presence: These locations are already industrial hubs, which can provide a ready market for the produced green hydrogen and facilitate the integration of green hydrogen into existing industrial processes.
    • Government Support: The Indian government has been actively promoting green hydrogen projects and has set ambitious targets for the sector. This support can help attract investments and facilitate the development of green hydrogen infrastructure in these locations.
    • Export Potential: The presence of ports in these locations makes them suitable for exporting green hydrogen, which is a significant factor in the development of the sector.

    These factors collectively make these locations attractive for green hydrogen development, positioning them as potential hubs for the industry in India.
