Joint identification of potential sites for green hydrogen application agreed upon; Indian Army looking to be a model for sustainability

Here’s an article posted in Solar Quarter that talks about the collaboration of NTPC REL and Indian army for Green Hydrogen projects.

According to the article,

  • NTPC REL signed an MoU with the Indian Army for green hydrogen projects in army establishments.
  • This is part of a trend of collaboration between major Indian power companies and the military for renewable energy development and supply.
  • The details and implications of this MoU are of interest to market researchers and industry stakeholders.
  • The military’s involvement in renewable energy projects reflects a significant shift towards sustainability and energy transition in India.

The Indian Army has also taken further steps in becoming sustainable using hydrogen. It now has plans to develop hydrogen fuel cells for e-mobility, and has received a state-of-the-art green hydrogen fuel cell bus from IndianOil.

The key benefits of these green hydrogen projects for the Indian Army are as follows:
