Green hydrogen facility to come up in Tamil Nadu

Fusion Fuel Green, which has offices in Portugal and Ireland, has signed an agreement with BGR Energy Systems, an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company based in Chennai, to install green hydrogen production facilities in Tamil Nadu.

The agreement is in line with India's plans to build green hydrogen plants that will run on electricity produced by green energy sources and help reduce dependence on fossil fuels for mobility.

The partnership is focused on developing green hydrogen projects in India, with the firms looking to set up a demonstration facility in Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu, later this year.

Fusion Fuel Green told the media that it would install a small demonstrator facility for BGR Energy in the region of Cuddalore in the second half of 2021 using its market-leading HEVO-SOLAR technology to generate cost-competitive green hydrogen. The joint venture (JV) will then co-develop projects throughout India, leveraging BGR Energy's extensive client network and existing commercial footprint, said Fusion.

The companies will also explore broader areas of potential cooperation given BGR Energy's broad competencies in the energy, environmental and industrial sectors.

In December last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced plans to launch a National Hydrogen Energy Mission, bolstering India's green energy credentials with the carbon emission-free next-generation fuel.

India's goal of 175 gigawatts (GW) by 2022 got an impetus in the 2021-22 budget, which allocated Rs 1,500 crore for renewable energy development and NHM.

Green Hydrogen is generated from renewable energy sources like solar and wind energy. It is produced from electrolysis powered by renewable electricity.

Global Rare Earth Supply Chains Diversify Away from China

In response to the rising global demand for rare earths critical for producing everything from electric vehicles to wind turbines, supply chains are undergoing a significant realignment away from China. Historically dominant in rare earth production, China's recent policies and geopolitical tensions have prompted Western nations and other stakeholders to seek alternative sources and bolster local capabilities. Rare earth processing involves two essential stages: initial extraction and subsequent refining into individual oxide compounds used to manufacture magnets essential in various industri..

India's Coal Consumption Set to Surge Amid Hydroelectricity Shortfall

Amid a significant drop in hydroelectricity production caused by inadequate rainfall, India is gearing up to increase its coal consumption to satisfy rising power demands, according to S&P Global Commodity Insights. This shortfall in hydroelectric power is anticipated to perpetuate India's reliance on coal imports. During the fiscal year 2023-24, India's coal production approached the 1 billion metric ton milestone, reflecting the government's strategy to lessen dependency on imported coal. Nonetheless, the country has already imported approximately 85 million metric tons of thermal coal in 20..
