Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari recently launched India's first hydrogen powered car - Toyota Mirai. The name Mirai is of Japanese origin and means "future". Green hydrogen is generated from water and will cost approximately INR 25/liter. #greenhydrogen #PositiveVibes
The car is a pilot project at the moment and the manufacturing of green hydrogen will begin in the country in a massive scale to enable India to be a nation exporting green hydrogen. Here are a few facts about this car. Watch the video as well.
@nitin_gadkari #PositiveVibes
1. Toyota Mirai is India's first hydrogen-based advanced Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle.

2. Toyota Mirai can cover a distance of 845 miles without fuelling, a Guinness World Record.

3. It will take only 3-5 minutes to fill hydrogen in a car similar to petrol.

What were #India’s major hits and misses in #ClimateAction in 2022?


1. As per the requirements of the #ParisAgreement, India submitted its plan for #NetZero #emissions by 2070 and also updated its NDCs.

🔖 Bookmark this #thread!

2. Long-term strategy (updated) + Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), which reaffirm attention to #climate policy. #India also consolidated its position on climate #geopolitics globally.

3. #India announced some big policy changes to upgrade for planned #renewables expansion.

The draft new electricity plan increases the 150GW target of installed #solar capacity by an additional 36GW to 186GW by 2027.

A lively interaction with @Youth4GH2 on the need to make transition from fossil fuel to #GreenEnergy at a panel discussion with @GaurieD & @TheVineetMittal to find answers to ‘Is #GreenHydrogen the answer to the world’s energy needs?’ at @India_celebrate by @KASonline @ileadglobe
The need for addressing environmental concerns has been an integral part of govt policy. From announcing an International #SolarAlliance in 2015 to the #PanchAmrit strategy in 2021, #PMModi Ji laid out a roadmap for India’s energy transition from the day he assumed office.
Hydrogen-based energy has emerged as the best bet for energy dependent countries. It is the cleanest form of fuel with highest calorific value amongst presently available fuels & will play a critical role in driving a paradigm shift towards a green & sustainable global economy.

NEW report: Western Balkan countries can decarbonise their power systems by 2045 – and save money – if they invest in #renewableenergy, #energystorage & #greenhydrogen when replacing aging lignite power plants. A 🧵1/6
A decarbonised power system ensures security of supply that can be further reinforced through deeper regional integration. 2/6
Fossil gas is no bridge fuel. Need for accelerated #climateaction, high & volatile #fossilgas prices & ever cheaper #renewables undermine business case for new fossil gas infrastructure. WB6 can cut gas use by 50% up to 2045 by investing in H2-ready infrastructure & storage. 3/6

🚨 New paper 🚨

Green #hydrogen and derived #efuels are critical for #climate #mitigation, but when will they be available at scale?

In a new Nature Energy study, we look at a key bottleneck: the market ramp-up of #electrolysis capacity.

Summary 🧵⬇️…
2/ #GreenHydrogen, produced from renewable electricity via electrolysis, is vital for the #EnergyTransition. In the #EnergyCrisis hydrogen is also considered an option to limit Europe's fossil fuel imports.

However, scaling up supply is a huge challenge!
3/ There's a lot of momentum in electrolysis project announcements. This is also much needed because global capacity needs to grow a staggering 6,000-8,000-fold from 2021-2050 to meet #NetZero scenarios. Yet, most projects still lack an FID, making them uncertain. Image

Everything you need to know about the Green Hydrogen Policy that will be announced today by the Govt of 🇮🇳

A thread 🧵👇🏻
#GreenHydrogen #investing

What is Hydrogen?

• Hydrogen is the simplest & smallest element in the periodic table. However, it can be produced in different ways, and so are the emissions of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide & methane.

3 ways to make hydrogen are
• Grey
• Blue
• Green

• Grey and Blue Hydrogen-

Grey hydrogen is traditionally produced from methane (CH4), split with steam into CO2 – the main culprit for climate change. It is often called brown or black hydrogen instead of grey due to higher CO2 emissions.

Getting the whole world to #netzero #GHGs rapidly is going to be incredibly difficult. But given how strong and organized the #climateopposition is, we must distinguish #thesignalfromthenoise on which pathways are the most likely to succeed. A 🧵 on how I think about this 1/14
2/ First, we cannot rely on social and lifestyle change governed by new paradigms like degrowth to deliver in time for this #climatedecade. But if the movement delivers small reductions in energy or meat consumption, we need it…
3/ #Technologyandpolicy (and politics) need to do the heavy lifting. Can they deliver? Yes, but to effectively channel our efforts and fight off the opposition, we need to distinguish between main courses, side dishes and poison pills (frequently buried in the side dishes)

We have published an English summary of our hydrogen report:…
Key messages:
Hydrogen is necessary for #climateneutrality, but needs to be used in an efficient manner. Only #greenhydrogen produced from #renewable power can be produced sustainably.
Blue hydrogen is currently discussed as a bridging technology. In our opinion, it is not sustainable due to residual GHG emissions, insufficient short-term #CCS capacity and the risk of #fossil infrastructure lock-in. Therefore, it should not receive public subsidies.
Stringent certification is necessary to minimize the environmental footprint and social issues of hydrogen. This is both true for imports and European production.
An additionality criterion for renewables can ensure that green hydrogen does indeed reduce carbon emissions.

Abro breve 🧵
Y respondo:
¿Por qué hay crisis energética?, digamos en #Queretaro por mencionar algo que tengo fresco.

La respuesta en one shot:

Falta de diversificación en la matriz energética.

Pero, primero y para entender el shot:
¿Qué es crisis energética?

Corre y se va👉🏽
La crisis energética es cuando las fuentes de energía se agotan o son poco rentables explotarlas.

Y vamos de lo general a lo particular.

Se habla de una crisis global, porque los hidrocarburos están siendo presionados por los propios mercados, pero no es de hoy.
La dinámica es un “coletazo” y consecuencia de lo que vimos en 2006-2008, la revolución del fracking y el relajo de la OPEP entre 2019/2020 que se recrudeció con los efectos de la destrucción de la demanda por la pandemia #Covid19

Vaya, un efecto dominó.

Decarbonisation requires making fossil energy more expensive – that’s the whole purpose of carbon pricing. Well, here we have expensive gas & oil! Will this help the energy transition?

Thread! 🧵✍️
The answer is highly unclear because:
1/ higher energy prices promote efficiency, but...

2/ it is now harder to add more price pressure to consumer bills, and

2/ gas prices have pushed electricity prices up, so the relative price of low-carbon energy has not improved
2/ Higher electricity prices bring no good news for the environment as the #GreenDeal relies on electrification to decarbonize polluting sectors of the economy

Expensive electricity will delay much needed investments in electric mobility, electric heat pumps, #GreenHydrogen….

#India recently announced the National Hydrogen Mission & there's growing interest among leading industry players in #greenhydrogen.
But why is green H2 significant for India's #energytransition?
In a new study, we examined how #greenhydrogen can help in cleaner steelmaking. We found that:
▶️9% blend of #green H2 in steel making would ⬇️India's emissions footprint by 68%
▶️This #greensteel would be competitive with upper range of conventional steel costs at current rates
If #greenhydrogen costs fell to 1.3-2.2 USD/kg from the current 4-4.5 USD/kg, steelmaking based entirely on #green H2 could break even with #coal-based processes in #India. Globally, electrolyser manufacturers have already committed to a green H2 cost of 1.5 USD/kg by 2025.
