MNRE to examine bid for powering city transport from renewable sources: R K Singh

The minister of new and renewable energy R K Singh on Thursday said he has asked the ministry to examine an innovative bid which would involve generating renewable energy to make hydrogen fuel and for charging batteries to power the transport of an entire city.

He said that the only bid requirement would be that the per kilometer cost of city transport should be equal to or less than the present per kilometer cost of diesel-driven buses.

“I have asked the ministry to examine an innovative bid where we will take up a city and the bid will be for generating renewable energy through solar, wind, or hybrid, and using that to make hydrogen and use it to power the city transport buses,” said Singh at CII’s virtual conference on Thursday.

Initially, one entire town or one whole city would be bid out under this.
