Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Hardeep Singh Puri is all set to inaugurate India’s first green hydrogen fuel cell bus at Kartavya Path in Delhi on Monday. According to Press Information Bureau (PIB), the initiative is part of Indian Oil’s efforts to conduct operational trials on designated routes in Delhi, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh with 15 fuel cell buses propelled by green hydrogen. The green hydrogen fuel cell bus will be flagged off at Kartavya Path in the national capital.
Green hydrogen at 350 bar pressure will be made available for the first time in India with this project, making it possible to run fuel cell buses. At its research and development campus in Faridabad, Indian Oil has also installed a refueling station that can replenish green hydrogen created by electrolysis using solar PV panels.
Fuel cell technology
In the world of e-mobility, fuel cell technology is acquiring prominence, with hydrogen serving as a fuel for fuel cells. The electrochemical mechanism in fuel cells converts hydrogen and oxygen into water efficiently, generating electricity. Green Hydrogen, produced through the use of renewable energy, has the potential to play a crucial role in such low-carbon and self-sufficient economic pathwAustin.Share This
