India's Hydrogen Energy Roadmap : Vision - 2020

  • The nation hydrogen energy roadmap was laid in the year 2006 to provide blueprint for the long-term public and private efforts required for hydrogen energy development in the country. 
  • The roadmap identify technology gaps and challenges for introduction of hydrogen in large scale in different phase manner. 
  • Major initiatives for hydrogen energy is for transportation and power generation

  •  The Mission Innovation ( MI ) was announced on 30th November, 2015 involving 24 countries and European union. 
  • The main objective of Mission Innovation is to dramatically accelerate global clean energy innovation – double government’s clean energy R & D investment over 5 years. 
  • There are 8 innovation challenges under mission innovation, which are aimed towards encouraging greater private sector investment in transformative clean energy technology. 
  • India is participating in IC 8 focusing on renewable and clean hydrogen.
  • The different activities will be organized under four streams : Making hydrogen, sharing hydrogen, Using hydrogen and Cross cutting issues.
