China’s National Development and Reform Commission has published the country’s hydrogen development goals over the course of the next three five-year plans. The National Development and Reform Commission is aiming to boost its production and distribution networks and increase the manufacture of fuel-cell vehicles. Last year, 2,000 were produced, but the commission hopes to increase the cumulative total to 50,000 by the end of 2025. It will also create a hydrogen fuel station network to power them.China is presently the world’s largest producer of hydrogen, however only 4% is derived from electrolysers run by renewable energy. The NDRC is planning to boost this to as much as 200,000 tonnes by 2025, reducing carbon emissions by up to 2 million tonnes a year.
