The firm has set sights on setting up 7.5 KPTA-distributed green hydrogen plants for industrial consumption in Andhra Pradesh with an investment of INR 1500 crores. The projects will entail on-site hydrogen production plants and off-site wind and solar energy plants.
Amplus Solar says it offers long-term profitable and clean energy solutions to commercial and industrial customers through the set up of on-site and off-site renewable plants. It further adds that by setting up on-site green hydrogen production plants, Amplus Solar will help its customer meet their Green Hydrogen requirements more efficiently, and solidify its commitment to India’s net-zero future.
On the signing of the MoU, Sharad Pungalia, MD and CEO, of Amplus Solar said, “We are excited to be a key contributor in achieving India’s goal of being the global Green Hydrogen hub. This MoU is our first step in active participation in the sector’s growth.”
Andhra Pradesh is an industrial hub with a mix of industries like petrochemicals, glass manufacturing, cement, fertilizers, etc. It offers a larger customer base to service and has a good potential for renewable energy generation considering the state’s encouraging geography. He added, “We are committed to deploying our resources in Andhra Pradesh, and we look forward to active support and long-term visibility from the state government, regulatory being one of the key ones. We are confident that with a focused vision, the state can place itself as a growth engine in India’s Green Hydrogen ambitions.”

Amplus’ operational plants are expected to cumulatively generate 22 billion units of electricity over their lifetime.
