GIFT City advances on platform for hydrogen trading


The International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) at GIFT City has collaborated with the Indian Gas Exchange (IGX) and Gujarat State Petroleum Corp. (GSPC) to establish a global hydrogen trading mechanism. This initiative, set to be the second of its kind globally, places GIFT City at the forefront of the emerging green hydrogen economy.

GSPC and IGX will jointly develop a mechanism to create a price index for hydrogen and attract global institutions to trade in GIFT IFSC.

“A key aspect of this collaboration is the subsequent launch of the Global Hydrogen Price Index, a benchmark that will play a pivotal role in price discovery and market information on the burgeoning green hydrogen market in India. This mechanism is expected to enhance transparency, boost investor confidence, and facilitate the growth of the green hydrogen market on a global scale,” stated a media release.

The objective of GIFT City IFSC is to develop and promote the trading of global securities including commodities and create a leadership in deriving prices for such globally traded commodities. Commodities such as gold and silver are largely traded through the India International Bullion Exchange at IFSC, GIFT City.

Established in 2020, the Indian Gas Exchange is India’s first automated national-level gas exchange for physical delivery of natural gas. The Exchange provides a neutral and transparent marketplace to multiple buyers and sellers to trade in the spot and forward gas contracts at designated physical hubs.

GIFT City is India’s first operational smart city, and IFSC at GIFT City is an emerging global financial and IT services hub, a first of its kind in India, designed to be at or above par with globally benchmarked business districts. It is supported by state-of-the-art infrastructure encompassing all basic urban infrastructure elements along with excellent external connectivity. GIFT City also provides a conducive business ecosystem with ease of doing business, a competitive tax regime, and many more advantages.
