Catalysing high-potential start-ups to accelerate the scaling and commercialisation of their solutions, supporting the wider clean hydrogen ecosystem encompassing energy security, the economic growth and decarbonisation
POSITIONING INDIA AT CENTRE STAGE OF THE WORLD'S CLEAN HYDROGEN MARKET
Clean hydrogen required by 2050, globally
CO2 emissions abated by 2050
Market size of global hydrogen market by 2050
Accelerating the growth of the global clean hydrogen economy
Clean hydrogen is necessary for the world to stay on track with its net-zero goals, especially in the fertiliser, refining, industry, and chemicals sectors. However, servicing this demand is inhibited by a lack of indigenisation and commercialisation across the value chain.
India is reliant on external technologies and supply chains to support domestic hydrogen production. Only by collaborating across sectors and geographies can we overcome the challenges in technology commercialisation and market creation to unlock hydrogen's benefits for society and the planet.
To solve these challenges, Xynteo launched Energy Leap in 2023
Take your hydrogen technology to the next level with Energy Leap
India’s clean hydrogen value chain remains disconnected between upstream inputs (such as renewable electricity, water, or biomass), midstream production, storage and transport, and downstream clean hydrogen consumers; with most hydrogen solutions lacking support for commercialisation, scaling, and driving India's potential in the world's clean hydrogen market.
Energy Leap is designed to help discover technologies from start-ups and academic and research institutes and connect these solutions with business and technical advisory, networking and partnerships, investment opportunities, and market access via a bespoke consulting approach.
