Steinbeis paves way for the green Hydrogen Energy Economy Technology & Transition in India


Hydrogen, an alternative to fossil fuels offers a huge potential as a clean source of energy and could be instrumental in decarbonizing economy. In line with the National Hydrogen Mission, Steinbeis organised a Training Workshop on Green Hydrogen Economy, Technology and Transition. Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Vineet Goyal, CEO - Steinbeis Centre for Technology Transfer in India, said “Steinbeis is taking a significant step towards Green Hydrogen Economy in India.  It is definitely a catalyst to clean energy in India and in line with the vision of the government.


The experts involved as Faculty were Mr. Vineet Kumar Goyal, Director, Steinbeis India & Coordinator – Steinbeis Indo-German Hydrogen Consortium, Dr. Michael Schlick, Technische Hochschule Ulm, Core Member - Fuel Cell Cluster of the State of Baden-Württemberg, Agency for New Mobility and Advisor

Under the Paris agreement (COP 21), by the year 2030, India is committed to reducing its greenhouse emissions by 33-35 per cent from the 2005 levels. This has necessitated finding alternative sources of cleaner energy. Hydrogen being the cleanest form of energy is the latest focus area across the globe to satiate the rising energy needs. Green hydrogen is derived from water electrolysis using renewable energy like solar or wind. The government also recently proposed the National Hydrogen Mission in the Union Budget 2021-22, initiating a hydrogen roadmap for the country. The mission was announced in August this year by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.


The Workshop had four technical sessions covering various aspects such as the opportunities arising from the Indian Hydrogen Policy and understanding the future policy direction with a session on European Hydrogen Policy, Research Directions and the cluster approach being followed there. The participants were exposed to the complete package and techno-economics comprising a Green Hydrogen Project and also worked on sample tenders brought out recently in India. Thereafter the electrolyser technology, social and legal issues and safety issues were discussed by subject matter experts. The last session covered important topics such as Global Green Hydrogen Alliance for Research and Technology Management, Technological Challenges in Manufacturing Green / Bio-Hydrogen, Hydrogen fuels for high power applications, Techno-Economics and challenges of a typical Hydrogen Mobility project.
