Government approves funds for four upcoming green hydrogen valley projects in India

The Department of Science and Technology (DST), under the Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India, has approved a funding of Rs 50 crore each for four upcoming green hydrogen valley projects in India, reported ETEnergyWorld.

A senior government official on the condition of anonymity said ETEnergyWorld, “Based on the merits and preparedness of the recommended hydrogen valley innovation clusters, DST has decided to allocate up to Rs 50 crore per cluster over five years.”

The official further mentioned that the Department is supporting four green hydrogen valleys this year, located in Kerala, Pune, Bhubaneswar, and Jodhpur.

The Kerala Hydrogen Valley Innovation Cluster (HVIC) will produce hydrogen via biomass and electrolyser pathways, targeting the mobility sector, especially marine and road transport. The Bhubaneswar HVIC will produce hydrogen using the electrolyser method, focusing on the steel and mobility sectors. The Pune HVIC will employ bioethanol and electrolyser methods for hydrogen production, aiming at the fine chemicals and mobility industries.
