Korea Speeds Up Plan to Build Alt-Fuel Refueling Infrastructure

April 10, 2017

The South Korean Ministry of Land Transportation announced plans to build 200 multipurpose stations to charge vehicles powered by fuel cells, batteries, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) by 2025, according to the Korea Herald newspaper.

The Korean government plans to provide incentives for private business operators to locate the stations on highways and beltways across the country. The newspaper reported that excess profits generated from these businesses will be reinvested into government-led fuel cell research projects.

Each planned station will be required to have at least one hydrogen charger, as well as a plug for pure electric vehicles, according to The Korea Herald. The stations will be capable of generating and distributing fuel cells from LPG, as well as producing electricity from fuel cells.
