Shell Hydrogen opens its first public hydrogen refueling station in Shanghai

In what I see as a significant milestone in the development of hydrogen as a viable transport fuel Shell Hydrogen and their local partners (China Ministry of Science and Technology, Shanghai government, The Linde Group and Tongji University) have opened the first hydrogen refueling station in Shanghai for fuel cell vehicles.

The Anting Hydrogen refueling station, located at the International Automotive City in Anting, Shanghai, will dispense compressed gaseous hydrogen for a fleet of fuel cell cars and buses operating in the Shanghai region.

Now that China is the second largest automotive market in the world, with car ownership predicted to increase three fold in the next ten years, China’s demand for energy is expected to more than double in the next two decades. If China can set up an effective hydrogen infrastructure rapid  development and marketing of mainstream hydrogen fuel cell vehicles is sure to follow.
