Adani Total Gas Ltd (ATGL), an energy and city gas distribution company, co-promoted by Adani Group and TotalEnergies, has initiated a green hydrogen blending pilot project in Gujarat.
ATGL stated it will employ the latest technologies to blend green hydrogen (GH2) with natural gas for over 4,000 residential and commercial customers in Ahmedabad. GH2 will be produced using electrolysis of water with renewable power. Hydrogen blending is less carbon-intensive than burning gas but has the same heating capabilities.
The project is expected to be commissioned by June 2025 and the percentage of green hydrogen in the blend will be gradually increased to up to 8% or more, depending on regulatory approvals. After successfully completing the pilot, hydrogen blended fuel will be supplied stepwise to larger parts of the city and other license areas of AGTL. As per studies, hydrogen blend up to 8% can reduce emission by up to 4%.
“With this pilot, ATGL would like to partner with various stakeholders including regulatory authorities to share its firsthand learning and develop an ecosystem about hydrogen blending in city gas distribution in India. This will also help in gaining and sharing knowledge on the operational aspects and the compatibility of blended fuel on existing infrastructure,” stated ATGL.
Adani Total Gas Ltd, part of the diversified Adani Group, is developing city gas distribution (CGD) networks to supply piped natural gas (PNG) to industrial, commercial and domestic (residential) customers and compressed natural gas (CNG) to the transport sector.
