In fifteen years there will be 5,000 hydrogen fuelling stations deployed across the globe, according to a report published by Information Trends.


Hydrogen fuel cell vehicle fueling up

A new report finds that by 2032 there will be almost 5,000 fuelling stations serving hydrogen-powered vehicles. Currently, five major car manufactures have either rolled-out a hydrogen fuel cell car model or are getting ready to do so.

The report, titled “Global Market for Hydrogen Fueling Stations,” finds that Asian countries such as Japan and South Korea, and European states like Denmark and Germany, are pushing the development of hydrogen fuelling infrastructure.

“Hydrogen is the fuel of the future,” said Naqi Jaffery, the lead author of the report, “and the proliferation of hydrogen stations represents the natural progression from fossil fuels to clean energy.”

Audi and Mercedes-Benz are about to launch their own fuel cell vehicles, while Toyota, Honda and Hyundai have been marketing their hydrogen-powered cars for some months. Toyota is planning to roll out 100 fuel cell buses in Tokyo in the run up to the 2020 Olympics.  

Last December, trucking start-up Nikola Motor announced plans to build a network of 364 hydrogen stations to support its own trucks and serve other drivers.
