The summit will be held in partnership with NITI Aayog, Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change, Department of Scientific & Industrial Research, CSIR and the Department of Science & Technology, Government of India.
The summit will be India-centric, and action-oriented with a special focus on 'Powering India's Hydrogen Ecosystem'.

The summit's agenda complements the initiatives through recommendations on the formation of an 'International Hydrogen Alliance' similar to 'International Solar Alliance', and the setting up of 'Centres of Excellence' in select universities across India. Key initiatives will assist in capacity building through a strong knowledge base and R&D.
Co-organised in association with ITEN Media - India's leading organiser of energy events, the summit is supported by Ministries of New and Renewable Energy, Petroleum & Natural Gas, Power, Coal, Earth Sciences and Micro, Small & Medium Enterprise. The Government of Norway has kindly consented to be the Partner Country for the Summit.

Together with India's Prime Minister and other world leaders, the summit will bring together nobel laureates, policymakers, regulators, industry leaders, experts and scientists to arrive at a consensus in matters about climate change and sustainability.
