India’s Green Drive Will Be Driven by Hydrogen in 2024: Everything You Need to Know

<p>Electric mobility picked up momentum in 2023, but industry insiders believe 2024 will be devoted to setting the foundation for India’s larger use of alternative fuels, especially hydrogen.</p>

<p>According to the Deccan Herald, government and automobile industry initiatives are geared at developing necessary policy support and infrastructure in the next year.</p>
<p>Electric cars, which were once heralded as the perfect answer, are now criticized for doing nothing more than moving pollutants up the chain, according to Kabir Bogra of Khaitan & Co. As a possible solution to pollution and import issues, hydrogen shows promise for use in both passenger and commercial vehicles.</p>
<p>The Mission: National Green Hydrogen<br />
The Union Government’s January launch of the National Green Hydrogen Mission is to build a capacity for producing at least 5 MMT of hydrogen annually, drawing in investments of around Rs 8 trillion. At the Auto Expo, Ashok Leyland and Tata Motors displayed heavy-duty trucks equipped with hydrogen internal combustion engine (H2ICE) technology, indicating a change in the automotive industry.</p>
By the middle of 2024, Omega Seiki Mobility intends to introduce a three-wheeler driven by hydrogen fuel cells, while Tata Motors and Indian Oil Corporation’s partnership resulted in the creation of India’s first green hydrogen fuel cell electric bus. JCB also left its impact on the world when it unveiled an H2ICE car in Bengaluru.</p>
<p>BlueWeave Consulting has projected that the hydrogen fuel cell car industry in India would expand at a compound annual growth rate of 27.66 percent, from $80.36 million in 2022 to $347.85 million in 2029.</p>
<p>TROUBLES<br />
Experts predict that by 2030, India will have 10,000–12,000 hydrogen-powered cars, mostly medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. Estimates vary. India is expected to have just 10–12% of its cars electrified by 2030, compared to 48% in China and 27% in the USA.</p>
<p>While hybrids are anticipated to dominate intercity (long-haul) transportation, electric cars are projected to dominate intracity mobility in urban areas. According to Mustafa Wajid, Chair of the IET Future of Mobility and Transport Panel, heavy-duty green hydrogen-powered cars may be on the road in the next year.</p>
<p>A strong supply chain is essential, according to Gulf Oil CEO and MD Ravi Chawla, and government incentives like PLI might encourage local production of electrolytes and help save costs.</p>
<p>Overcoming obstacles via technological advancements, supply chain organization, and governmental assistance are necessary to hasten India’s shift to hydrogen-powered transportation.</p>
