NTPC, India’s largest state-owned power company, has commenced its venture into hydrogen and energy storage solutions with the establishment of a hydrogen hub in Andhra Pradesh. The hub aims to facilitate the manufacturing, production, and export of green hydrogen and green ammonia-related equipment.
The initial phase of the hydrogen hub project will be implemented at Pudimadaka, where NTPC has already begun the groundwork. Additionally, the company has signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Andhra Pradesh government for the development of another hydrogen hub near Visakhapatnam. The planned green hydrogen hub at Pudimadaka is expected to have a capacity of 1500 TPD (tons per day), starting with an initial capacity of 1,500 tonnes per day.
In line with its renewable energy ambitions, NTPC aims to install 13.4 GW of solar and 20 GW of renewable energy and storage capacity by 2030. These efforts align with the company’s commitment to sustainable energy solutions and contribute to India’s renewable energy goals.
