Green hydrogen cluster to come up in Mangaluru

Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Oct 31: Global Investors Meet (GIM) 2022 was held in the city from November 2 to 4. This shows that Karnataka is in the forefront of green hydrogen production in the country.

E V Ramana Reddy, additional chief secretary of the commercial and industrial department, said that the state government has planned to establish India’s first green hydrogen cluster in Mangaluru.

ACME Solar, ABC Cleantech, ReNew Power, Avaada Energy, JSW Green Hydrogen, Petronas Hydrogen and O2 Power have shown interest to invest in Karnataka in order to produce green hydrogen.

Around 1.5 lac crore will be invested in the green hydrogen project. The investors have asked for land near Mangaluru port. Reddy said that Green Hydrogen can be converted to Green Ammonia and exported.

Reddy further said, “Around 100 to 300 acres of land is required for the establishment of green hydrogen units. Most important is the constant supply of solar and wind power. Green power will be transported to Hydrogen plants of Mangaluru through transmission lines of Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited or Power Grid Corporation of India.

“Schemes will arrive in phases. This will take a minimum five to six years. PM Modi declared the National Hydrogen Mission with the aim of making India as the production center. He said that before 2047 Hydrogen and fuel will be exported from India.

“Karnataka is ready to play an important role in the global supply chain. Covid disrupted the global supply chain. Present geological and political scenario is conducive to convert Karnataka as the best destination.

“This edition of GIM has the role of Karnataka in the global supply chain system under the subject ‘Build for the world’.

“Karnataka already has excellent environment system for electronics, system design and manufacturing (ESDM). The state is the biggest chip designer facility of India with more than 85 Fables Chip design like Intel, Qualcom, NVIDIA, applied materials, AMD etc. We have given priority to attract investments in semi-conductor and other ESDM production sector,” he said.

When green hydrogen is produced using renewable energy or a process, it can be used in an emergency like hydrogen. The same can be supplied in gas form or through natural gas pipes.

    Preetham, Farangipet "Above all, green H2 is Dinar killer." No problem, that does make much difference with me as my savings are already in INR & partly in Real Estate, back in Mangalore. As I had disclosed earlier USDs kept for $ to fetch Rs. 120.- and KD.1 =Rs.. 300.- + By the way are burning yourself with jealousy. You can never match me in any sense. Firangipet is not your type of place. You better go back to Kirem DK.

    Any National / state development Project must not be seen as a Great achievement of a particular Man or of a particular party in power / Government. This industrial Development of Karnataka MUST not be counted as a feather in the cap of the current government to beg for votes. The policy of every human must be to come into this world, add value and leave the place better than we found it, The policy of every government MUST be to come to power and develop the state or the country, add tremendous value and super develop and not only rename and maintain and not the least blame the past and sell of what the earlier governments have invested and built up. India today is what it is because of the strong DEMOCRATIC FOUNDATIONS laid down by the early leaders like, Gandhi, Nehru, Ambedkar, Azad, Bose, Patel, Lajpat Rai, Bhagat singh, Naoroji, Tatya Tope, nana sahib, Chittoronjon Das, Rajagopalachari, sukhdev, mangal pande, Bhagat singh, and countless selfless heroes that gave up their lives to build a beautiful and peaceful country that we live and cherish today. It renaming and taking credit and taking selfies and pictures for future records or to show case and to cling to power while being oblivious to peoples struggles and with no fore sight, we would be where many countries of Africa were decade ago Indian origin leaders would not be manning countries and great corporates and institutions around the world today. Hope we accelerate investment in innovation and development of future technologies, infrastructure , energy, health care, environment, natural and ocean wealth of our state and country as a hole and not only rename and sell off what has already been built and established over the past 70 years to our surprise whether we like it or not. If only we could invest in looking forward, blame the past less and empower our people and systems more towards inclusive governance not giving into selfy and photo op culture we would be great again. way to go.

    Green energy supports only 5 to 10 % of economy. Germany gone back to coal. Communist chinese are heavily using coal. These communist chinese and globalist elite want other nations to use Green Energy to reduce global warming or climate change which these manipulating using weather modifying HAARP machines. With green energy they have already bankrupted Sri lanka. US inflation has skyrocketted due to new green deals. Elite only make money through these green deals projects and using wars for volatile oils prices for their hugh cut or gain. Ruin others economy and control those countries with their IMF, WB's unpayable loans for more bankruptcy is the agenda behind elite and communist chinese these evil green plans!! Yes it is pleasing pollusion free then after sometime high inflation, if economy nosedives it is not surprising! So Green energy should not be a replacement of coal or nuclear other fossil fuels but additional energy sources towards future 5 trillion economy!

    Hopefully this works cause hydrogen vehicles are much better than electric vehicles in terms of fuel and mileage.
