National Hydrogen Mission
The launch of the National Hydrogen Mission was announced by Prime Minister Modi on the occasion of IndiaÂ’s 75th Independence Day. The objective of this mission is to make India the global hub for the production and export of green hydrogen, enabling it to become a low-carbon economy.
Under this mission, the government will promote hydrogen generation from Â“green power sourcesÂ”. This minimises global warming and addresses climate crisis. The mission will promote hydrogen as an energy source in areas like transportation and industries such as chemicals, iron, steel, fertiliser and refining, transport, heat and power.
