Green Hydrogen Energy initiatives
Developing Nepal's water resources into hydropower and using hydropower to develop green hydrogen driven by talents of Nepal will be very important for Nepal's economic prosperity, energy and food security as well as sustainable development.
The Nepal government's goal is to develop water resources into hydropower and use them to produce hydrogen energy, ammonia and urea fertilizers. Pre-feasibility study has been conducted on the production of chemical fertilizers from hydrogen using hydropower. An agreement has been reached between Nepal Electricity Authority and Korea's Global Green Growth Institute on the initiative of the Ministry of Energy to advance the work of Hydrogen Energy production.
To achieve the goal of sustainable development by 2030 and a middle-income country by 2026, it is necessary to develop economy at war footing pace. The world is now making policies and developing technologies with interest and priority on hydrogen energy, determining the area of consumption backed by researches, Nepal Government should work on integrated policy in Green Hydrogen Energy and Agriculture. There is an urgent need to engage consultants in this area.
Effort is required to provide inputs to the stakeholders for Introduction of Green Hydrogen in their respective areas of expertise/work to achieve the sighted goals for green sustainable future. In an era where urbanization is accelerating at an unprecedented pace, the imperative to build smart, sustainable cities has never been greater. Event handling forums should be encouraged as a beacon of innovation, bringing together experts, visionaries, and leaders from across the globe to explore the transformative potential of Green Hydrogen in shaping our urban landscapes. Events are required for not only knowledge sharing opportunities for the stakeholders, but also to exhibit their state-of-art Green Hydrogen producing capabilities.
Ministry like Minister for Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation, academia, researchers and industries, NGOs, INGOs NRNs and local communities should play active role in this area.
