Shanghai (Gasgoo)- East China's Zhejiang province is ambitious to deploy around 5,000 fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) in such fields as bus transportation, ports, and inter-city logistics service, and build about 50 hydrogen-refueling stations by 2025, according to a document Zhejiang’s authorities issued earlier this month.

To be specific, over 2,500 FCVs and 20 hydrogen filling stations are set to be deployed in Jiaxing city by 2025. The rest of the targets should be fulfilled by Ningbo, Shaoxing, Jinhua, Zhoushan cities, as well as Jiashan and Changxing counties.

Besides, Zhejiang's governmental agencies will draw up regulations on the construction and operation of hydrogen filling stations, and award subsidies to relevant investors and operators based on the actual building and operation status.

As for the capability of hydrogen supply, local enterprises will be encouraged to produce FCV-used hydrogen using industrial byproduct hydrogen and industrial organic wastes, and work on reducing hydrogen making costs. The government will also support them in carrying out the pilot projects for using renewable energy sources, like wind power and photovoltaics, to produce hydrogen.

Through the combination of industrial deployment and application scenarios, Zhejiang province plans to build two “hydrogen corridors”. The one will connect the key node cities along the G92 Hangzhou Bay Ring Expressway, including Jiaxing, Hangzhou, Shaoxing, and Ningbo. The other one will utilize the G1512 Yongjin Expressway to link Jinhua and Ningbo with Zhoushan.
