India, Denmark to fund joint R&D projects on green hydrogen fuels


The Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India, and the Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD) have invited proposals from Indo-Danish teams for joint research and development of green fuels including green hydrogen for transport and industrial applications.

The successful projects will be jointly funded by India and Denmark. For the Danish counterpart, funding will be disbursed by the IFD. Similarly, the Indian counterpart will be funded by the DST. 

“The Danish side (IFD) will allocate a total of 20 million DKK and the Indian side (DST) will allocate a total of INR 200 million to support three to five joint research and innovation projects. The duration of the projects is expected to be up to three years for both sides,” as per the call for proposals.

Projects may contribute to renewables-based green hydrogen production, storage, and utilization; electrolyzers and fuel cells; innovations on improving efficiency, boosting production capacity, and finding robust, cheaper alternatives to the rare materials used in current electrolyzers/fuel cells; support for the establishment of gigawatt-scale electrolyzer test center; manufacturing of electrolyzer/fuel cell components; standardizing and automating production processes; distribution network for H2 transport using polymers/converting current gas distribution; underground H2 storage facility; decarbonization of hard-to-abate industries like refineries, steel, and ammonia; and photoelectrochemical systems for hydrogen production.

The proposal can be submitted to the IFD and the DST until June 2, 2022.
