Seoul--The Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy on Tuesday said, that the South Korean Government plans to construct 310 hydrogen refueling stations across the country by 2022.
According to the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy, this plan will encompass 250 hydrogen stations in major cities and 60 stations on expressways. By 2040 the total of hydrogen stations will expand to 1200.
The ministry’s plan is based on the assumption that there will be 67,000 hydrogen cars in use by 2022. This will create an annual demand for hydrogen of 30,000 tons.
A ministry official said “We plan to build hydrogen stations taking into account various factors, including the total number of registered hydrogen cars, population, and traffic volume per region,” he continued, “By the end of this year we will already have 86 stations.”
