The pilot project, based on Alkaline Electrolyzer and expected to complete in ~8 months, will blend ~2.5% GH2 into CGD network
Torrent Power, India's leading integrated power utility company, has taken a significant step towards a greener future by starting work on a Green Hydrogen pilot project for blending with natural gas in city gas distribution (CGD) network.
The pilot project, based on Alkaline Electrolyzer and expected to complete in ~8 months, will blend ~2.5% GH2 into CGD network, marking an important milestone in the company's foray into GH2 business in India.
GH2 is produced using electrolysis of water powered by Renewable sources. Blending GH2 with the existing natural gas supply allows for a gradual transition towards a cleaner and more sustainable energy mix. This Gorakhpur based pilot project for Torrent Gas will be one of the largest private sector blending projects in India.
Through this initiative, Torrent has taken the first step towards incorporating GH2 in its business operations and, coupled with its strong presence in RE, is looking to grow as a leading end to end GH2 solution provider to industrial & commercial players in India. In addition, export oriented green ammonia development is also being envisaged as a growth avenue for the company with active interests in multiple states.
Torrent Power is also working on other green energy pathways of Pumped Hydro Storage and Green Hydrogen.
