“The application of hydrogen fits perfectly in the context of Nepal. Its scope varies widely from enhancing energy security, reducing the trade deficit to promoting the use of hydroelectricity. While the world is adopting hydrogen as part of their economy, there is an urgent need for Nepal to recognize its potential. We, at Green Hydrogen Lab, are dedicated to promoting green hydrogen in Nepal.”

“Mr. KC is in the first year of his PhD program and has been working as a Research Fellow at Green Hydrogen Lab. His research focus is on performance enhancement of PEM fuel cell.”
