New Millennium Indian Technology Leadership Initiative (NMITLI)

• The President, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, unveiled the first Indigenous High Temperature Fuel Cell System.
• It is developed by Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in partnership with Indian industries under India’s flagship program named “New Millennium Indian Technology Leadership Initiative (NMITLI)”.

Principle
• The 5.0 kW fuel cell system generates power in a green manner using methanol / bio-methane, with heat and water as bi-products for further use; amounting to greater than 70% efficiency, which otherwise may not be possible by other energy sources.

About Fuel Cells
• In the field of clean energy, Fuel Cell distributed power generation systems are emerging as promising alternative to grid power.
• The Fuel Cells developed are based on High Temperature Proton Exchange Membrane (HTPEM) Technology.
• The development is most suitable for distributed stationary power applications like for small offices, commercial units, data centers etc. where highly reliable power is essential with simultaneous requirement for air-conditioning.
• This system will also meet the requirement of efficient, clean and reliable backup power generator for telecom towers, remote locations and strategic applications as well.
• This development would replace Diesel Generating (DG) sets and help reduce India’s dependence on crude oil.

Significance
• The Fuel Cells fit well in India’s mission of replacing diesel with green and alternate fuels.
• The development of fuel cell technology is indigenous and carries immense national importance in terms of non-grid energy security.
