310 H2 refuelling stations in Korea by 2022


Executives from leading international oil & gas, energy, science & technology and automotive companies gathered in Seoul for a first-of-its kind strategic dialogue with the Korean government on how to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen (H2) technologies in the region.

Taking place amid a series of bold announcements on H2 around the world, the inaugural ‘International Hydrogen Energy Forum’ brings together top representatives from the Korean National Assembly as well as several Korean ministries with members and guests of the Hydrogen Council. This includes market leaders such as 3M, Air Liquide, Audi, Great Wall Motor, Hyundai, Iwatani, Kawasaki, Plastic Omnium, Shell, The Linde Group, Toyota, and Weichai. Hydrogen Council supporting members Faurecia, Toyota Tsusho, Mitsui and Gore will also be in attendance.
