Shanghai wants 10,000 hydrogen vehicles on the road in 2025

Shanghai is a major hub for hydrogen in China. And the Chinese metropolis is stepping up its efforts.

While the “anti-hydrogen” crowd in Europe are holding forth on social networks, still believing that this energy carrier has no future in mobility, China is making progress. And what better example than Shanghai? The region is home to numerous industries, particularly in the automotive and mobility sectors. And the China Hydrogen Bulletin reports that the local government has announced its new plan on July 31th. The latter specifies the near term target of Shanghai’s hydrogen development.

The objective is to set up 70 hydrogen refuelling stations by 2025. As a side note, there are 14 today. The number of hydrogen vehicles on the road will rise from 2,500 to 10,000 over the same period. The Shanghai government wants to give priority to commercial vehicles, i.e. buses, heavy-duty trucks and logistics vehicles.

These targets for 2025 are intermediate, since Shanghai actually has a hydrogen plan that runs until 2035.

First as an end-of-study internship, then as Marketing & Communication Manager and translator at Hydrogen Today.
