The BRICS Nations, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, are sitting for a two days summit in India on June 22-23, 2021. The summit is on Green Hydrogen initiatives.
The event offers a platform to share their respective Green Hydrogen initiatives and views on how to take it to the next level in their own countries. The online event will be held via a video conference, said an official release.
The event will be anchored by India's largest power producer and one of the global energy majors, National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Ltd, a Maharatna Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSU) under Ministry of Power.
The virtual summit will bring the best brains, policy makers and major stakeholders from the BRICS nations deliberating and discussing at length the future of Hydrogen in the energy mix, read the release.
The representatives from each country would be sharing respective initiatives undertaken by their countries on utilization of hydrogen and their future plans. The speakers will also share the relevance of different technologies developed on hydrogen and its priorities for their country.
As the world rapidly moves to decarbonise the entire energy system, hydrogen is poised to play a vital role and build on the rapid scale-up of renewable resources across the world.
Hydrogen when produced by electrolysis using renewable energy is known as Green Hydrogen which has no carbon footprint. This gives Hydrogen the edge over other fuels to unlock various avenues of green usage.
However, challenges lie in terms of technology, efficiency, financial viability and scaling up which the summit will aim to address.
