India will be hosting a two-day summit on Green Hydrogen involving the BRICS nations starting June 22. The summit will be held via a video conference and will conclude on June 23. The event will be anchored by India's state-run NTPC Ltd.
In a NTPC statement it was said that the event will offer a platform to share the Green Hydrogen initiatives and views on how to take it to the next level in their own countries.
The online event will bring the best brains, policymakers and major stakeholders from the BRICS nations deliberating and discussing at length the future of hydrogen in the energy mix.
NTPC stated,"Hydrogen, when produced by electrolysis using renewable energy, is known as green hydrogen which has no carbon footprint. This gives hydrogen the edge over other fuels to unlock various avenues of green usage."
The statement further stated, “As the world rapidly moves to decarbonise the entire energy system, hydrogen is poised to play a vital role and build on the rapid scale-up of renewable resources across the world."
Many countries have brought up their own strategies and targets based on their resources and strengths.
On the first day of the event, the representatives from each country will share their respective initiatives taken by their countries on utilization of hydrogen and their future plans. The representatives will also share the relevance of different types of technologies developed on hydrogen and its importance for their country.
The second day, the event will witness panel discussions on different ideas integrating hydrogen in the overall energy policy framework by different countries.
The draft recommends Green Hydrogen exports to Japan, South Korea, and Europe, and also suggest to set up four integrated hydrogen hubs and to run long-range public transport buses fuelled by hydrogen cells.
Although, it is challenging in terms of technology efficiency and finance which the summit will aim to address.
