Share

Torrent Power, an integrated power utility, has started a pilot project on blending green hydrogen with natural gas in the city gas distribution (CGD) network. The pilot project, based on an alkaline electrolyzer, is expected to complete in eight months.

“This Gorakhpur-based pilot project for Torrent Gas will be one of the largest private-sector blending projects in India,” stated the company.

Torrent will blend green hydrogen at 2.5% by volume into the CGD network, marking its foray into the green hydrogen business in India. 

Through this initiative, coupled with its strong presence in renewable energy, Torrent is looking to grow as a leading end-to-end green hydrogen solution provider to industrial and commercial players in India. It is also looking at export-oriented green ammonia development as a growth avenue. 

Currently, Torrent Power has an installed power generation capacity of 4.1 GW, which consists largely of gas (2.7 GW) and renewables (.07 GW) including solar and wind power generation. In addition, a renewable capacity of 0.7 GW is under different stages of development. Torrent Power is also working on pumped hydro storage.
