Renewable Energy Integration

It utilises electricity from renewable sources, primarily solar energy, for water electrolysis, aligning with India's National Green Hydrogen mission.

Initially, the produced hydrogen will be blended with natural gas for captive use within the Vijaipur plant, later extending to retail customers in nearby areas via high-pressure cascades.

Supporting Infrastructure

GAIL is also establishing up to 20 MW solar power plants at Vijaipur to meet the green power demand for electrolysis, emphasising the integration of renewable energy sources.

GAIL is conducting experimental blending of hydrogen with natural gas in Indore, aiming to increase blending ratios subject to regulatory approvals and successful testing.

Financial Performance

Despite revenue declining by 5.6% to ₹32,317 crore in the March quarter, GAIL's net profit dropped over 23% due to weaker performance in gas marketing.

Stakeholder Information

The Indian government holds a majority stake of 51.9% in GAIL, with Indian Oil Corporation and ONGC having smaller stakes. Additionally, around 11.97 lakh shareholders hold stakes in the company.

Overall, GAIL's venture into green hydrogen production signifies a significant step towards sustainable energy development in India, contributing to both environmental goals and energy diversification efforts.
