This will be blended with PNG in a predetermined proportion for using it in NTPC Kawas Township for cooking. Initially, the proportion of hydrogen blending in the PNG shall be around 5 percent and after successful completion it shall be increased further.
NTPC has an installed capacity of 69 GW, with a diversified fuel mix. The NTPC group plans to achieve 60 GW of Renewable Energy in a decade and is executing several pilot projects in the green hydrogen segment.
