NTPC, a power producer and a central PSU under the Ministry of Power, has invited global expression of interest (EoI) to provide 10 hydrogen fuel cell (FC) based electric buses and an equal number of hydrogen fuel cell-based electric cars in Leh and Delhi.

The EoI has been issued by NTPC's wholly-owned subsidiary, NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam (NVVN).

The move to procure hydrogen fuel cell-based vehicles is the first-of-its-kind project in the country, wherein a complete solution from green energy to the fuel cell vehicle would be developed.

The initiative, which has been undertaken with support of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, will also harness renewable energy for generation of hydrogen and develop its storage and dispensation facilities as part of the pilot projects at Leh and Delhi.
