Germany’s hydrogen infrastructure to be further expanded

Germany’s hydrogen station network will continue to be expanded by up to 15 stations a year for the next two years, H2 Mobility Deutschland and Germany’s transport ministry agreed today.

The new deal, signed this morning at the Stakeholder Conference on the National Hydrogen Strategy in Berlin, means more than 60,000 fuel cell cars and 500 commercial vehicles will be able to refuel in Germany by the end of 2021.

The first phase of hydrogen infrastructure expansion will be completed by mid-2020, when there will be 100 hydrogen stations in seven regions – Hamburg, Berlin, Rhine-Ruhr, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Stuttgart and Munich – as well as along the connecting arteries.
