NTPC begins India’s first green hydrogen blending project

NTPC has started India’s first green hydrogen blending operation in the PNG network of its township in Kawas, Surat. The project is a joint effort of NTPC and Gujarat Gas (GGL). The blending project will supply hydrogen-NG (natural gas) to households in the Kawas township. The green hydrogen is produced through the electrolysis of water using power from a 1 MW floating solar project. The Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) has given approval for a five per cent blending of green hydrogen with PNG to start with, and the blending level would be scaled phase-wise to reach 20 per cent.
