BEIJING, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- Many regions in China have recently rolled out measures on the fuel cell vehicle industry in response to the State Council's call for the development of the new energy vehicle (NEV), reported the Xinhua-run cnstock.com Saturday.
Shanghai vows to build 100 hydrogen fueling stations and promote the use of nearly 10,000 fuel cell vehicles by 2023, according to the plan for the fuel cell vehicle industry released by Shanghai's local authorities on November 13.
Shanghai will also inject momentum into hydrogen fuel's technological innovation to improve the city's core competitiveness in the industry. It will strengthen the coordinated development of fuel cell vehicles in the Yangtze River Delta region.
In southern China, Guangdong Province recently released an implementation plan to develop hydrogen fuel cell vehicles with independent core technology within this year and is expected to demonstrate the operation of the first batch of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in 2022.
Guangdong also calls to promote the development of hydrogen fuel cell industry in industrial parks located in Guangzhou, Foshan, and other cities, and build about 300 hydrogen fueling stations in the Pearl River Delta and coastal economic belt areas.
East China's Zhejiang Province planned last year to achieve 1,000 hydrogen-fueled vehicles by 2022, accompanied by a total output value of more than 10 billion yuan in the hydrogen industry.
Meanwhile, Zhejiang's neighbor province, Jiangsu, pledges to build an entire hydrogen fuel cell vehicle industry by 2025, with an expected output volume of more than 10,000 vehicles.
Shandong Province in east China is also accelerating the hydrogen cell industry's layout, while the capital city Jinan takes the lead in creating a demonstration cluster of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles with cities of Qingdao, Weifang, Zibo and Jining.
