The CMD stressed the need for interventions in both the demand and supply aspects during the deliberations on the creation of a robust Green Hydrogen ecosystem. He highlighted the importance of reducing the cost of Green Hydrogen through investments in Research, Development, and Innovation. These investments aim to identify cost-effective methods for Green Hydrogen production. He also advocated for leveraging economies of scale in transportation (including pipeline and liquefaction) and storage facilities by establishing Hydrogen hubs.
