Indian engineering conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T) said in a regulatory update on Thursday that it signed an agreement with Goldman Sachs-backed green energy producer ReNew Power to jointly develop and operate green hydrogen projects in India.

Green hydrogen demand in India is expected to grow up to 2 million metric tonnes per annum (MMPTA) by 2030 for use in refineries, fertilisers and city gas grids. This requires investments of around $60bn, considered as the size of the emerging green hydrogen market in the country.

L&T with its expertise in engineering and construction, and ReNew with its experience in the development of renewable energy projects, are market leaders in their respective sectors and this synergistic partnership is committed to tapping this emerging opportunity, the exchange release noted.

Building green energy portfolio

“This partnership with ReNew…brings together the impeccable track record of L&T in designing, executing, and delivering EPC (engineering procurement and construction) projects and the expertise of ReNew in developing utility-scale renewable energy projects,” said L&T chief executive officer and managing director S N Subrahmanyan.

He considers green hydrogen to be a promising alternative fuel and an important lever for achieving a cleaner future. “L&T is extremely keen to add value in this space beyond the traditional EPC approach and is looking forward to working with ReNew,” Subrahmanyan added.

Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will jointly develop, own, execute and operate green hydrogen projects in India. 

ReNew Power, listed in NASDAQ as ReNew Energy Global (RNW), is one of the leading renewable energy companies in India by operational capacity.

Zero-emission targets

Green hydrogen is produced by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen in an electrolyser by using renewable-powered electricity and is said to help the world meet its net-zero emission targets.

Many countries, including India (through its National Hydrogen Mission), have announced specific policy interventions to push for the widespread adoption of green hydrogen, L&T said.

“Green hydrogen will be a key driver of the transition to cleaner sources of energy and this partnership between ReNew and L&T, will allow both companies to pool their knowledge, expertise and resources to take maximum advantage of this transition,” said ReNew’s chairman and chief executive officer Sumant Sinha.

“I expect this partnership to set new benchmarks in the Indian renewable energy space and took forward to working together with L&T,” he added. 

This partnership is the latest development in the Indian green energy space which has already seen big announcements by industrialists Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
