Webinar on the modelling the production costs of green ammonia in India

The Green Hydrogen Organisation, in collaboration with the Indo-German Energy Forum (IGEF-SO), organised a webinar on 12 September 2023, to introduce a modelling tool designed for calculating the production cost of green ammonia in India. This webinar was a deliverable agreed upon by the members of the Subworking Group on Plant Engineering Production under the Indo-German Green Hydrogen Task Force.

Mr. Tobias Winter, Director, IGEF-SO, highlighted the global importance of green ammonia as a hydrogen transport medium, as mentioned in the G20 New Delhi Leaders' Declaration. The Indo-German Green Hydrogen Task Force, responding to the global interest in determining the cost of green ammonia production in India, undertook the creation of this tool at the request of the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and the German Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action.

Mr. Jonas Moberg, Chief Executive Officer, Global Green Hydrogen Organisation, also addressed the participants, and Mr. Rolf Behrndt, Senior Hydrogen Specialist, GIZ Germany, provided a brief overview of the analysis scope.

Mr. Sidharth Jain, the Founder and Managing Director of MEC Intelligence, presented the cost modeling tool, providing a demonstration of its functionality. The tool allows users to calculate production quantities, associated costs, and operational profiles for ammonia, hydrogen, and renewable power. It simulates 14 parameters related to the costs of producing green ammonia.

Mr. Jain showcased the tool's dashboard, focusing on inputs and outputs, and presented three modeling scenarios, illustrating potential cost reductions of 16-20% under various configurations. The scenarios included hourly settlement and monthly settlement options.

The webinar concluded with an open Q&A session moderated by Mr. Behrndt.
