NTPC Green Energy Ltd (NGEL), an arm of India’s leading integrated power producer NTPC Ltd, and Nayara Energy, an oil refining and marketing company, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore opportunities in the green hydrogen and green energy space. 

The MoU envisages to collaborate and produce green hydrogen for Nayara Energy’s captive usage, accelerate decarbonisation and catalyse reduction in carbon footprint.  

Mohit Bhargava, CEO of NGEL, said, “Green hydrogen would be a crucial element of India’s clean energy future, and with this partnership, we will explore and implement cutting-edge technologies to produce green hydrogen, contributing to a cleaner and more resilient energy landscape.”
