Hild Electric to Supply Electrolyzers to NTPC for Green Hydrogen Production

NTPC aims to produce at least 150 kilotons per annum of green hydrogen by 2032


Hild Electric, a manufacturer and deployer of electrolyzers, has been chosen as the Alkaline electrolyzer technology provider for NTPC Renewable Energy.

The partnership will see Hild Electric deploying stacks combined with purifiers and separators to offer a solution that can integrate with renewable energy resources and produce green hydrogen.

As per the agreement, these solutions will be deployed up to 600 MW capacity across various industrial applications, including ammonia, transportation, and power.

This initiative aims to support NTPC’s ambitious goal of producing at least 150 kilotons per annum of green hydrogen by 2032.

Speaking about the collaboration, Hild Electric said, “Partnering with NTPC Renewable Energy as their preferred technology provider on what is the largest alkaline electrolyzer deal in India is an incredible breakthrough.”

In April last year, NTPC Renewable Energy issued a notice for upcoming tenders to select electrolyzer technology providers to participate in green hydrogen tenders for two years.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) released a framework document outlining incentive programs for the manufacturing of electrolyzers and the production of green hydrogen within the country, with a combined financial outlay of ₹174.9 billion (~$2.1 billion).

The framework document outlines two components of the incentive programs. Component I focuses on providing electrolyzer manufacturing incentives, with an outlay of ₹44.4 billion (~$541.2 million), and Component II aims to support Green Hydrogen production, with an outlay of ₹130.5 billion (~$1.6 billion).

MNRE also unveiled a draft roadmap outlining the research and development priorities for manufacturing and storing green hydrogen. It aims to promote efficient, safe, and cost-effective hydrogen storage, paving the way for its widespread adoption as a clean energy source.

Recently, the Solar Energy Corporation of India issued a request for the selection of electrolyzer manufacturers for setting up 1.5 GW of electrolyzer manufacturing capacities in India under Tranche-I of the Strategic Interventions for Green Hydrogen Transition Program.
