New testing & quality assurance labs to boost green hydrogen sector

The central government has issued new guidelines under the National Green Hydrogen Mission (NGHM) to fund the development of testing facilities, infrastructure, and institutional support. This initiative aims to strengthen the quality and testing ecosystem in India's growing green hydrogen sector.

The scheme has been allocated Rs 2 billion for 2024-26 to identify and address gaps in the current testing infrastructure and to develop new facilities that meet national and international standards.

The National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE) will act as the SIA, responsible for overseeing the application and implementation processes. NISE will issue Calls for Proposals (CfP) to identify suitable projects for establishing and enhancing testing facilities.

Financial support will be provided in three stages: 20% on selection, 70% upon reaching certain milestones, and the final 10% upon project completion.

A Project Appraisal Committee will closely monitor and evaluate projects to ensure they align with the mission?s goals. Projects failing to adhere to timelines or objectives risk funding cancellation.

The scheme focuses on developing a robust quality and testing ecosystem to ensure the safe, efficient, and secure operation of green hydrogen technologies, aligning with both national and international standards.

"The scheme emphasizes the development of a robust quality and testing ecosystem that is in line with national and international standards," stated a document released by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

"This strategic investment into testing infrastructure underlines our commitment to advancing India's capabilities in green hydrogen, aiming to position the nation as a leader in this critical sector of the future," concluded the release.

By enhancing testing and quality assurance facilities, India aims to solidify its position as a global leader in the green hydrogen sector, driving forward the nation's renewable energy agenda and ensuring the success of the National Green Hydrogen Mission.
