Steinbeis paves the way for green hydrogen energy economy technology and transition in India

New Delhi [India], Oct. 1 (ANI/PNN): Hydrogen as an alternative to fossil fuels has great potential as a clean energy source and could help decarbonize the economy. In line with the National Hydrogen Mission, Steinbeis has signed an MOU with Waaree Energies Ltd. and DSE Consortium Germany to establish an assembly line for electrolyser and polysilicon production units in India. This synergy is also responsible for the implementation of solar thermal technology to transform India’s coal-fired power plants into green power plants. In addition to this, they will activate cooperation for the installation of solar power plants in Africa.

At the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP 26) held in Glasgow, UK, India pledged to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 45% from 2005 levels by 2030. This has made it necessary to find alternative sources of cleaner energy. Hydrogen is the cleanest form of energy and the hottest spot in the world to meet growing energy demands. Green hydrogen is obtained from the electrolysis of water using renewable energy such as solar or wind power. The government recently proposed a National Hydrogen Mission in Federal Budget 2021-22, launching the National Hydrogen Roadmap. The mission was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in August this year. Vineet Goyal, CEO of Steinbeis Center for Technology Transfer in India, said, “Steinbeis is taking a significant step towards a green hydrogen economy in India. In addition to the MOU between Steinbeis, Waaree Energies and the DSE consortium, Mahatma Phule Renewable Energy and Infrastructure Technology Limited (MAHAPREIT), a wholly owned subsidiary of MPBCDC, will also enter into an MoU with the Steinbeis Center for Technology Transfer. India as Mahapreit’s knowledge partner for setting up green energy industrial estates, especially green hydrogen, energy storage, etc. in Maharashtra.

“Furthermore, Steinbeis is also in talks with the Government of India’s Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) to support the establishment of green hydrogen research and development, commercialization, skill building and training centers in India,” Goyal said. added. “As a storage medium for renewable energy, as a fuel for zero-emission fuel cell vehicles and as a base fuel for industry, it is a key asset that will transform energy and transportation. together to further advance the technological development of hydrogen electrolysers in India,” said Dr. Bertram Lohmueller, Director of Steinbeis GmbH Germany and DSE Green Consortium, Germany.
