“In the next five years, we will replace grey with green hydrogen to increase its share to 25 per cent,” he said.

“We are working on mission mode to increase natural gas consumption in our energy mix by 2030,” the prime minister said further.

He urged investors to look at India as “it is the most relevant place for investment in the field of energy”.
