Shell plans to open new hydrogen refuelling sites in Europe, China and the US

Hydrogen sales at every site have ‘doubled’ year-on-year on the back of higher demand from cars and lorries, a senior company executive says

The company is building hydrogen refuelling sites in China, Netherlands, Germany and in California, Paul Bogers, vice president for Hydrogen at Shell, told The National in an interview on the sidelines of Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference.

“In Europe, there is currently the green deal package that states that every 150 kilometres there should be a hydrogen refuelling site along the main routes. Similar plans are under way on the West Coast of the US and some other parts of the world. If that happens, the number of sites are really going to increase,” Mr Bogers said.

“In California, we are building 50 sites. The demand there is much higher with Toyota, Hyundai and Honda vehicles coming into the market. China should be starting next year,” Mr Bogers said. “We believe we need to get into thousands of sites by the end of the decade.”

The company currently owns 100 sites in Europe and sales at every site have “doubled” year-on-year on the back of higher demand from cars and lorries, he said.
