South Korea Targets Over 2,000 Hydrogen Buses By 2026

The title of this post, is the same as that of this news item from Argus Media.

This is the sub-heading.

South Korea plans to convert more than 250 commuter buses intro hydrogen-fuelled buses by this year and more than 2,000 by 2026, in a concerted effort to raise the uptake of hydrogen vehicles.

It appears to be a well-thought plan.

This last paragraph gives South Korea’s long-term objective.

A higher uptake of hydrogen vehicles is in line with the hydrogen roadmap the government released in November 2022, where it envisioned the transportation sector as one of the key drivers of large-scale hydrogen demand. South Korea aims to raise its supply of high-mobility vehicles such as hydrogen buses and trucks, with a goal of producing 30,000 hydrogen commercial vehicles and building 70 liquid hydrogen refuelling stations in the country by 2030.

We need an ambitious plan like this in the United Kingdom.

As the UK population is thirty percent larger than South Korea’s we probably need one with similar but larger ambitions.
