I am pleased to learn that that the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry in partnership with NITI Aayog, Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change along with other Ministries of Government of India, is organizing the "International Climate Summit 2021 – Powering India’s Hydrogen Ecosystem" on 3rd September 2021.
Addressing Climate Change is both complex and challenging. Emerging technologies offer possibilities for the use of naturally abundant Hydrogen as an alternative to expensive and limited fossil fuels. They are pathbreaking and have the potential of transforming not only the global environment but also the global economy and the way we live. The theme of the Summit ‘Powering India’s Hydrogen Ecosystem’ is therefore both contextual and timely.
Clean Hydrogen as it is beginning to appear, has vast potential in not only ensuring the reduction of emission of greenhouse gases, but also in decarbonising ‘difficult to electrify’ sectors such as long distance transport and heavy industry. It can also provide long term sustainable solutions to the challenges being faced by the energy sector today.
I extend my greetings to the PHD Chamber for organizing this event and I am certain that the forthcoming Summit, will provide a useful platform to bring together all stakeholders for meaningful deliberations on the subject and the Summit will come out with constructive strategies and policy suggestions for use and promotion of Hydrogen as an effective solution for a sustainable energy system.
