Intracity Hydrogen Buses to Start Operation in Leh on Trial Basis

By PIB Delhi

Towards achieving Carbon-Neutral Ladakh, NTPC is setting up a Hydrogen Fuelling Station, Solar Plant and providing five Fuel Cell buses for operation on intracity routes of Leh.

The first hydrogen bus reached Leh on 17th August 2023 as part of a 3-month-long process of field trials, roadworthiness tests, and other statutory procedures. This will be India’s first-ever deployment of hydrogen buses on public roads.

The first-of-its-kind Green Hydrogen Mobility Project at 11,562 ft is co-located with a dedicated Solar plant of 1.7 MW for providing renewable power. A unique feature of this project is that the fuel cell buses are designed for operation in sub-zero temperatures in rarefied atmospheres, which is typical for high-altitude locations.  

NTPC is committed to achieving 60 GW of Renewable Energy capacity by 2032 and is a major player in Green Hydrogen Technology and Energy Storage domain. The company is taking up several initiatives toward decarbonization such as Hydrogen blending, Carbon Capture, EV buses, and Smart NTPC Townships.
