Joint Call for project proposals 2022 Indo-Danish research and innovation cooperation in the area of "Green fuels including green hydrogen

Opening date : February 09, 2022

Closing Date : June 02, 2022 (12.00 Danish Time, 17.30 Indian Time)

Department: Innovation Fund Denmark (IFD), and Department of Science and Technology (DST)


Green fuels including green hydrogen Green fuels for transport and industry (Power-to-X, etc.). Solutions to convert electricity from renewable energy into products that can be used to reduce emissions from parts of the transport and industrial sectors where there are no cost-effective alternatives to fossil energy.

Projects can contribute to e.g.

  1. Renewables based green hydrogen production, storage and utilization
  2. Electrolysers and fuel cells
  3. Innovations on improving efficiency, boosting production capacity and finding robust, cheaper alternatives to the rare materials used in current electrolysers/fuel cells
  4. Support for the establishment of Gigawatt- scale electrolyser test centre.
  5. Manufacturing of electrolyser /fuel cell components such as membranes, stack integrators, suppliers of supporting technology and system integrators
  6. Standardising and automating production processes
  7. Distribution network for H2 transport using polymers/converting current gas distribution
  8. Underground H2 storage facility
  9. Decarbonisation of hard-to-abate industries like refineries, steel, Ammonia etc.,
  10. Photoelectrochemical systems for hydrogen production
  11. The integration of Power-to-X-systems to the energy system (e.g. sector coupling)”

Note: Please note that the call is not exclusive to these topics and is open to any other research addressing problems related to green fuels including green hydrogen.
