Released by the National Development and Reform Commission and the National Energy Administration, the hydrogen strategy will maintain China’s leadership status in hydrogen technologies and expand on its already “world leading” 33 million tonne production output.
According to Xinhua, China wants to establish a complete hydrogen energy industry development by 2025, which includes a boost to innovation as well as a boost to core technologies.
In this timeframe, China is aiming to produce 100,000 to 200,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year whilst additionally having around 50,000 hydrogen-fuelled vehicles.
By 2030, China will seek a reasonable industry layout to integrate hydrogen technologies and use hydrogen from renewable energy to provide the greatest reduction in carbon emissions.
In 2035, the proportion of hydrogen produced from renewable energy will increase and again will support deeper decarbonisation of industries around the country whilst also spearheading global developments.
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
