India's junior oil minister Rameswar Teli, state-run refiners are putting plans in place to create 30.8 kilo tonnes of green hydrogen annually by 2030. India, one of the world's biggest greenhouse gas emitters, recently announced a 197 billion rupee ($2.4 billion) green hydrogen programme to cut the country's carbon intensity and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
Companies such as Reliance Industries, NTPC , Adani Group, JSW Energy, ReNew Power and Acme Solar have announced plans to help India meet its goal to produce at least 5 million tonnes of green hydrogen by 2030.
The federal government has announced it would provide 300 billion rupees ($3.65 billion) to help state-run oil refiners move towards cleaner energy, a step aimed at helping the country achieve its 2070 net-zero carbon emission target.
"Refineries in the country already utilise hydrogen for internal consumption which has the potential to be converted into green hydrogen," Teli said in a written reply to a lawmaker's question.
