The Government of Uttar Pradesh in October 2022, notified the Uttar Pradesh Green Hydrogen Policy to promote growth and employment in the state while prioritising decarbonisation and the state’s contribution to India’s climate goals. The policy shall promote green hydrogen/ammonia production, market creation, and demand aggregation. The policy shall ensure a conducive ecosystem in the state to support its ambition to be a leading green hydrogen/ammonia economy. The policy shall support production, consumption, market creation, and other elements across the green hydrogen/ammonia value chain. Green hydrogen has a large potential for uptake in Nitrogenous (N-) Fertilisers, Chemicals, Refineries, Heavy-duty vehicles, Energy storage and Iron and Steel sectors. In the near term, this policy shall focus primarily on two major hydrogen/ammonia demand centres in the state of UP – Nitrogenous (N-) Fertilizers and Refinery.
