The aim of Energy Leap is to identify, incubate, and support indigenous solutions across the hydrogen value chain by driving innovation and facilitating the commercialisation of high-potential technologies. There are two key objectives: first, discovering new technologies to support the hydrogen economy through a national innovation challenge, and second, supporting early to mid-stage Indian start-ups across the hydrogen value chain.
Vipul Kumar, Senior Partner at Xynteo, said: “Hydrogen holds immense potential to enable industries and economies to achieve net-zero emissions, supporting India’s transition to a sustainable energy future. However, the crucial challenges of technology commercialisation and acceleration have hindered the scaling of viable clean hydrogen opportunities thus far. We see Energy Leap as the transformative solution to addressing these challenges, and as part of our mission, we invite diverse industries and cross-sectoral stakeholders to join this programme.”
