Vizag will host India's first green hydrogen microgrid program. The independent fuel-cell-based micro-grid with electrolyzer-based hydrogen generation would be India's inaugural green hydrogen-based power reserve system.

'NTPC has granted a program of independent Fuel-Cell based Micro-grid with hydrogen generation utilizing electrolyzer in NTPC Guest House at Simhadri,' according to the electricity ministry. According to the Ministry, it will serve as a prelude to large-scale hydrogen power storage programs and will be valuable for evaluating and installing several microgrids in different off-grid and important places around the country. The hydrogen would be created utilizing theinnovative 240 kW Solid Oxide Electrolyzer, which would be powered by the neighboring Floating Solar plant.

'The hydrogen generated during the day would be held under high pressure and powered by a 50 kW Solid Oxide Fuel Cell. From 5 p.m. until 7 a.m., the system would operate on its own 'it was added
NTPC created this one-of-a-kind project arrangement in-house. 'It is a one-of-a-kind initiative for India, and it would pave the way for decarbonizing the country's remote regions, such as Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir, and others that have hitherto relied on diesel generators,' it added. The initiative is consistent with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's objective of being carbon neutral by 2070 and making Ladakh a carbon-neutral area.
