NTPC REL to setup first green Hydrogen mobility project in Ladakh

NTPC’s green energy arm REL has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Union Territory of Ladakh to set up the country’s first green Hydrogen Mobility project in the region.

The company also inaugurated the first solar installations in Leh in the form of solar trees and a solar carport, an official statement said.

The MoU will help Ladakh develop a carbon-free economy based on renewable sources and green hydrogen. It was signed in the presence of Lt Governor R K Mathur, senior dignitaries of government, NTPC and public representatives, it said.

NTPC has planned to ply five hydrogen buses in the region and will also be setting up a solar plant and a green hydrogen generation unit in Leh.

NTPC has recently revised its target of achieving 60 Gw renewables capacity by 2032, almost doubling the earlier target. Recently, NTPC has commissioned India’s largest floating solar project of 10 Mw at Visakhapatnam.
