Green Ammonia Production Project in India

JERA and ReNew Join Forces for Green Ammonia Production Project in India

JERA Co., Inc (JERA), in a groundbreaking collaboration with ReNew E-Fuels Private Limited, a subsidiary of ReNew Energy Global PLC, has jointly signed a landmark agreement to develop a pioneering green ammonia production project. This initiative signifies a significant step towards accelerating the adoption of renewable energy solutions and paves the way for a new era of sustainability in the energy sector.

Project Scope and Objectives

Under the agreement, JERA and ReNew will conduct a comprehensive study to develop a green ammonia production facility in Paradip, Odisha, India. The project, set to commence in [year], aims to leverage approximately 500 MW of renewable energy capacity to produce 100,000 tons of green ammonia annually. The collaboration underscores both companies’ commitment to harnessing renewable resources and reducing carbon emissions.

Government Support for Green Initiatives

The project aligns with the Government of India’s National Green Hydrogen Mission, which aims to promote green hydrogen and ammonia production and use. The Government of Japan, a key player in the global energy transition, has also unveiled schemes such as [specific scheme] to accelerate the shift towards sustainable energy solutions. The project’s alignment with these initiatives underscores its international significance and potential impact.

Leveraging Expertise and Resources

With a longstanding partnership dating back to 2017, JERA and ReNew are not just collaborating but aligning their visions. They bring together their expertise and resources to drive renewable energy development. ReNew’s experience in renewable energy projects complements JERA’s capabilities in building sustainable energy value chains. Together, they aim to advance the goals of Net Zero emissions and promote green hydrogen adoption, ensuring a future that’s not just sustainable but thriving.

Environmental Impact and Sustainability Goals

The production of green ammonia using renewable energy sources is not just a project; it’s a beacon of hope. It’s expected to significantly contribute to JERA’s “Zero CO2 Emissions 2050” objective, marking a significant milestone in our journey towards a decarbonized future. By harnessing green hydrogen technology, the project seeks to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and mitigate carbon emissions, underscoring both companies’ unwavering commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship.

Accelerating Renewable Energy Deployment

Through JERA Nex, a dedicated renewable energy business entity, JERA aims to accelerate the development of renewable energy infrastructure essential for green hydrogen and ammonia production. With a portfolio of over 3GW in renewable energy assets, JERA Nex is committed to driving the global energy transition towards a more sustainable future.

Vision for a Decarbonized Society

Yukio Kani, Global CEO and chair of JERA, emphasized the collaboration’s significance in advancing towards a decarbonized society. Sumant Sinha, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of ReNew, highlighted the project’s potential to contribute to a cleaner future and support India’s clean energy transition.
