TERI partners Norway’s Greenstat for Centre of Excellence in hydrogen


The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and Greenstat Hydrogen India have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at accelerating the deployment of hydrogen technologies in India. The MoU covers policy and research activities such as collaboration on establishing a Norwegian Centre of Excellence on Hydrogen in India and knowledge-sharing to support the development of hydrogen technologies in India.

Greenstat Hydrogen is the India arm of Norwegian energy company Greenstat, which focuses on green hydrogen, solar, wind and zero-emission maritime solutions. Greenstat develops projects related to sustainable hydrogen production in Norway and aims at exploring international prospects.

The partnership with Greenstat Hydrogen will build upon TERI’s existing research on hydrogen in India, which most recently published a policy brief titled ‘Make Hydrogen in India,’ with a more detailed report coming out in late 2020.

Sturle Pedersen, chairman, Greenstat Hydrogen India, said, “Together with TERI, we are launching an initiative that will put India at the forefront of hydrogen globally. The Centre of Excellence on Hydrogen in India will be key to achieving India’s international climate commitments and accelerating the energy transition. This Centre of Excellence offers opportunities throughout the entire green hydrogen chain to fulfill the aspirations and our ambitions to reduce CO2 emissions and deliver more and cleaner energy.”

Girish Sethi, senior director, Energy Programme, TERI, said, “TERI looks forward to this partnership with Greenstat to help accelerate the pace of the energy transition in India. Hydrogen technologies are crucial for the decarbonization of India’s energy system as well as reducing energy imports – making them a win-win proposition.”
