Adani Total Gas launches Green Hydrogen Blending Pilot Project in Ahmedabad
As part of the project, ATGL will employ the latest technologies to blend Green Hydrogen (GH2) with natural gas for over 4,000 residential and commercial customers in Ahmedabad.
Adani Total Gas Ltd. (ATGL), an energy and city gas distribution company, co-promoted by Adani Group and TotalEnergies, has announced a ‘Green Hydrogen Blending Pilot Project’.
As part of the project, ATGL will employ the latest technologies to blend Green Hydrogen (GH2) with natural gas for over 4,000 residential and commercial customers in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
Green hydrogen is produced using electrolysis of water with electricity generated by renewable energy. Hydrogen blending is less carbon-intensive than burning gas but has the same heating capabilities.
The project is expected to be commissioned by Q1 FY24-25 and the percentage of green hydrogen will gradually be increased in the blend to up to 8% or more, depending on regulatory approvals.
After successfully completing the pilot, hydrogen blended fuel will be supplied stepwise to larger parts of the city and other license areas of AGTL. As per studies, an up to 8% hydrogen blend can reduce emissions by up to 4%.
With this pilot, ATGL would like to partner with various stakeholders including regulatory authorities to share its firsthand learning and develop an ecosystem for hydrogen blending in city gas distribution in India. This will also help in gaining and sharing knowledge on the operational aspects and the compatibility of blended fuel on existing infrastructure.
Suresh P Manglani, Executive Director and CEO of Adani Total Gas Ltd., said,
“We are fully committed towards building an environmentally sustainable operation and this project represents our ongoing dedication towards national infrastructure building for India to become energy independent by 2047."
