National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd (NTPC) has floated a global expression of interest (EoI) to set up two pilot projects using hydrogen fuel cell, the company said on June 13.
The state-run integrated power generating company would “set up two pilot projects, standalone fuel-cell based backup power system and a standalone fuel-cell based microgrid system with hydrogen production using electrolyser at NTPC premises”, an official statement said.
Through the projects, NTPC is looking to further strengthen its footprint in green and clean fuel. “NTPC will collaborate for implementation and further commercialisation of the projects,” the statement added.
The two new pilot projects are in line with NTPC’s initiatives towards adopting hydrogen technologies.
