Government to fund green energy conversion of state-run refineries

According to 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 greatest greenhouse gas emitters, recently announced a 197 billion rupee ($24 billion) green hydrogen plan to minimise the country's carbon intensity and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Reliance Industries, NTPC, Adani Group, JSW Energy, ReNew Power, and Acme Solar are just a few of the businesses that have made plans to assist India in achieving its target of producing at least 5 million tonnes of green hydrogen by 2030.

In order to help the nation reach its 2070 net zero carbon emission goal, the federal government has stated it will pay 300 billion rupees ($3.65 billion) to assist state-run oil refiners in switching to cleaner energy.

“Refineries in the country already utilize 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.
