The Green Hydrogen Electrolyser Manufacturing Ecosystem Assessment Project has been launched to aid Indian companies develop a framework for manufacturing electrolysers in Tamil Nadu.
With an ultimate goal of expanding the production of green hydrogen as a source of power and heating in India, the project was launched by Minister for Industries, Investment and Commerce T.R.B. Rajaa, and U.K. Minister of State for Energy Security and Net Zero Graham Stuart.
S. Krishnan, Additional Chief Secretary, Industries Department, said: “Tamil Nadu has advantages in that it is a coastal state, a leader in renewable energy, has good connectivity and it can support the upswing in supply of renewable energy.
“Today’s discussion is important because we can understand what we can do to promote electrolyser manufacturing.”
T.R.B. Rajaa highlighted that Tamil Nadu is India’s greenest State, and that the Chief Minister wishes to increase the tree cover from 23.69% to 33%. He added: “We are keen to use green hydrogen and our policy on the same will be rolled out soon.”
Graham Stuart also commented: “I am impressed by Tamil Nadu’s efforts to adopt low-carbon energy sources, boost green jobs and growth across the State while strengthening both its energy and climate security.
“The UK is delighted to partner with Tamil Nadu on both offshore wind and green hydrogen.”
