Air Liquide and 10 Japanese Companies Join Forces to Accelerate the Deployment of Hydrogen Energy in Japan

Air Liquide (Paris:AI) and 10 large Japanese companies, representing several industries and finance, announce the creation of the “Japan H2 Mobility” consortium for the purpose of accelerating the deployment in Japan of hydrogen stations and fuel cell electric vehicles. The 11 founding companies will contribute, in connection with the stated ambition of the Japanese government, to the development of a large-scale hydrogen infrastructure in order to build a network of 320 stations by 2025, and 900 by 2030.
Today, there are about 100 stations already in operation in Japan. Initially, the 11 member companies of the “Japan H2 Mobility” consortium will target to provide 80 new hydrogen stations, over the next four years, which will serve to recharge a fleet of nearly 40,000 hydrogen-powered electric cars. Air Liquide for its part will install and operate around twenty stations by 2021.
