NTPC invites EoI for Hydrogen Fuel Cell based pilot projects

has floated a global Expression of Interest (EOI) to set up two pilot projects, Standalone Fuel-Cell based backup system and a standalone fuel-cell based system with production using electrolyser at premises.

Through the projects, is looking to further strengthen its footprint in green and clean fuel. will collaborate for implementation and further commercialization of the projects.

This is in line with NTPC’s initiatives towards adopting technologies.

 It has already started a pilot for making methanol integrating carbon captured from plant flue gas and hydrogen from electrolysis.

This is a potential solution towards “” in field of carbon capture and green hydrocarbon synthesis.

Taking the initiative forward, NTPC is exploring use of Hydrogen based Fuel Cells-Electrolyser systems for backup power requirement.

Currently, the backup power requirement and micro grid applications are being met from diesel-based power generators.

Looking at these as early adopter use case of Hydrogen based technologies, NTPC is working towards creating solutions which are a green alternative to Diesel Generators.

NTPC is geared up to play a pivotal role in ’s adoption of the hydrogen economy.
