Toyota, Nissan, and Honda have agreed on key details regarding a new joint support project for the development of hydrogen station infrastructure in Japan, the companies announced.

In addition to partially covering the operating costs of hydrogen stations, the three automakers have also agreed to help infrastructure companies deliver the best possible customer service and create a convenient refueling network for owners of fuel cell vehicles (FCVs).

The joint project (conducted alongside the Japanese government's support for hydrogen stations) will partially cover hydrogen station operating expenses incurred by infrastructure companies, and the project partners will jointly raise awareness about FCVs and hydrogen in order to encourage new companies to enter the hydrogen supply business, according to the companies.

Financial assistance will be provided through the Research Association of Hydrogen Supply/Utilization Technology (HySUT), which is setting up a project to stimulate demand for FCVs.
