BPCL plans to install India’s largest green hydrogen unit

Bharat Petroleum Corporation plans to float a tender for a 20 MW electrolyser to build India’s largest green hydrogen plant.

The plans are in line with the company’s aim to achieve net-zero emissions for its operations by 2040. The 20 MW electrolyser will be installed at BPCL’s refinery in Bina, Madhya Pradesh to produce green hydrogen. It will be a pilot project for the company.BPCL currently consumes 650 MW of power including 550 MW of grid power and captive gas-based power, which is expected to increase to 1,000 MW by 2027, after factoring in green hydrogen obligation. The government has proposed that green hydrogen should make up 10 per cent of the overall hydrogen requirements of refineries in three years increasing to 25 per cent by 2030.
