About Greenstat Hydrogen Sri Lanka

Greenstat Hydrogen Sri Lanka Pvt Ltd design, develop, builds and operates facilities for green hydrogen production for all sectors.

Welcome to Greenstat Hydrogen Sri Lanka!

We are a prominent player in Sri Lanka’s renewable energy landscape, dedicated to shaping a sustainable, prosperous, and green future.

At Greenstat, our passion for sustainable energy goes beyond mere business interests. We are deeply committed to environmental preservation and innovation.

Greenstat Hydrogen Sri Lanka journey commenced in February 2022 when we were honored to become the exclusive technology partner of the Sri Lankan Government through a partnership with the Petroleum Development Authority of Sri Lanka (PDASL). This collaborative agreement, built on mutual trust and a shared vision, laid the foundation for a sustainable energy revolution in Sri Lanka.

A significant milestone in our progress occurred in December 2022 when a Presidential note to the cabinet mandated that all green hydrogen initiatives be conducted through or with Greenstat and PDASL. This directive further solidified our role as a key player in Sri Lanka’s transition to a green hydrogen economy, bolstering our efforts and affirming our unwavering commitment to this crucial mission.

As an equity-driven company, Greenstat invests in and operates hydrogen and renewable energy infrastructure. We recognize the value of strategic partnerships, which is why we have joined forces with key private sector entities in Sri Lanka. Together, we are formulating innovative pilot projects scheduled for execution in 2024, paving the way for a greener future.

One particularly exciting aspect of our work revolves around harnessing Sri Lanka’s offshore wind potential, a resource that exceeds the country’s energy needs. Acknowledging this untapped potential, we are closely collaborating with PDASL to strategize and implement an offshore hydrogen commercialization strategy. This initiative aims to convert abundant wind power into green hydrogen for export, marking a significant stride towards Sri Lanka’s sustainable energy goals.

Our dedication to developing a national feasibility study and formulating a national hydrogen roadmap has placed us at the forefront of this sustainable energy transformation. We take immense pride in leading these initiatives, ensuring that the expertise necessary for this ambitious endeavor is nurtured and retained in Sri Lanka.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude for the support and collaboration of the Sri Lankan Government, PDASL, our private sector partners, and the wider Sri Lankan community. Together, we are driving towards a sustainable, prosperous, and green Sri Lanka.

Join us on this remarkable journey towards a greener future with Greenstat Hydrogen.
