 The National Green Hydrogen Mission aims to develop India as a global hub for production, usage and exports of green hydrogen and its derivatives. The Mission is expected to promote multilateral engagement and collaboration with various international efforts in hydrogen and fuel cells. Cooperation among academia, universities, technical institutions, industry and research laboratories is likely to be facilitated under bilateral and multilateral collaboration programmes for result-oriented technology development, knowledge creation and dissemination. 

G20 New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration affirmed ‘G20 High Level Voluntary Principles on Hydrogen’ to build a sustainable and equitable global hydrogen ecosystem that benefits all nations. The declaration also emphasised a free and fair trade of hydrogen in line with WTO rules supported by resilient and diversified supply chains.
