NTPC to allot 5 GW capacity for green hydrogen and ammonia business

NTPC Limited has announced its plans to allot 5 GW capacity, out of its 60 GW green portfolio target, towards green hydrogen and ammonia business by 2032.

Notably, NTPC does not seek to use hydrogen for generation purposes. NTPC presently has three ongoing pilot projects in the hydrogen business. One in Leh, the other at its Kawas plant in Gujarat, and the third at its Vindhyachal plant in Madhya Pradesh. NTPC aims to create and expand renewable capacity to nearly as large as its present coal-based capacity in the next 10 years.
