Yash Sheth has his expertise in renewable and sustainable energy engineering through providing sustainable ideas to address the issue of climate change and resource management. He has been working as a renewable energy and energy efficiency engineer straight after completing his Masters in Renewable and Sustainable Energy from Murdoch University, Australia and Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering from India. Moreover, Yash has a passion for writing and innovation, and got his first book, titled, ‘7 Commitments I made to Myself’ published in the year 2018 and has a patent under publication for electric two-wheelers with the India Patent office.
Statement of Problem: Currently, production of green hydrogen fuel is an extremely energy intensive and expensive process. To be deployed at scale, it will need to compete with emerging low carbon alternatives such as electric vehicles and incumbent fossil fuels. Also, use of green hydrogen fuel in end-uses is not always the most efficient solution compared to direct electrification in many applications. According to research, globally, only 4% of the hydrogen is produced through the process of electrolysis.However, hydrogen being an abundant and consistent zero-carbon fuel, time has come on the basis of technological innovations to make hydrogen fuel a major player in the energy system to address the increasing concern about climate change and for this reason, it is necessary to assess the potential role of hydrogen from a systems perspective, considering all potential end-uses, production routes, and value-chain configurations in the Indian context.
