China’s northern province Inner Mongolia established two critical hydrogen policies – a Hydrogen Industry 14th Five-Year Plan and a Hydrogen Industry Development Execution Plan, aiming to take a leading position in China’s embryonic green hydrogen sector.
The two policies outline the ambition to build a green hydrogen production base in the province totalling 0.5 million tons per year renewable hydrogen production capacity, 100 refuelling stations, and 5000 fuel cell heavy-duty trucks by the end of 2025.
Meanwhile, the province also will unleash ten demo projects in the fields of green hydrogen metallurgy, green hydrogen power-to-chemical, green hydrogen distributed energy supply, and heating co-production.
Energy Iceberg’s Note: Inner Mongolia (as well as Gansu, Shaanxi) will be China’s green hydrogen power-to-chemical hot spot in the next five years. The region will set an example of green hydrogen application.
