Xinhua reports that Wuhan, capital city of central China’s Hubei Province in Central China, will build itself into a “hydrogen city” through developing a hydrogen energy industry, according to a city development plan.
The city will advance hydrogen production, storage and transport, and improve hydrogen infrastructure, along with a hydrogen energy industrial park gathering more than 100 fuel cell automakers and related enterprises, according to the plan as reported by Xinhua.
The city will build up to 20 hydrogen fueling stations from 2018 to 2020 to support approximately 3,000 hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicles.
Wuhan is targeting 3 to 5 “world-leading” hydrogen enterprises and 30 to 100 hydrogen fueling stations by 2025; annual production value of hydrogen fuel cells will exceed $15.6 billion.
Wuhan, which sits on the middle reaches of the Yangtze River (the province is home to the massive Three Gorges Dam), is home to a number of automakers, including Dongfeng Motor Corporation.
