MY VIEW ON GREEN HYDROGEN LAB

With the exponentially fast-growing renewable energy technologies in nook and corners of the globe, the demand for sustainable energy storage technologies increases, which exposes the necessity of hydrogen in the energy scheme. Nepal possesses tremendous prospects of producing green hydrogen and developing a sustainable hydrogen economy in the country due to the vast capacity of hydroelectricity generation. A more in-depth R&D on green-hydrogen, and its utilization for end-uses such as clean transportation, industries, stationary powerplants, and residence in the context of Nepal, opens a gateway for a gamechanger technology, and GHLab aims to lead it from the front. The penetration of hydrogen in the national energy market not only revolutionizes the industries and power sectors but also supports the nation’s financial growth.
