The Plan notes that FCV is one of important directions to the development of new energy vehicles (NEVs) and will serve as a significant carrier of “made-in-Shanghai” products and technologies. Going forward, Shanghai will build a world-class innovation hub of FCV-related core technologies and a cluster of technology companies, and launch whopping scenarios for FCV commercial application.

As of 2023, Shanghai is ambitious to build the largest hydrogen refueling network in China, put nearly 10,000 FCVs on roads and see its FCV industry deliver an output value of 100 billion yuan ($15.094 billion).

Under the Plan, Shanghai will establish a world's leading platform for FCV industry development and deploy tens of thousands of FCVs by 2025. A complete industrial chain that embraces the manufacturing and assembly of FCVs, the R&D and production of such core parts as battery system and fuel cell stacks, the multi-scenario commercial operation of FCVs, the supply of facilities for hydrogen production, storage, transport and refueling, and the testing and certification services will be built then. What's more, FCV-related industrial clusters will be formed in Jiangding, Qingpu, Jinshan, Pudong and Baoshan districts as well as Lin-gang Special Area.

Moreover, the megacity will make greater efforts to boost the collaborative development of FCV industry in Yangtze River Delta and team up with neighboring cities to build a hydrogen passageway in this region.
