2019 Strategic Roadmap for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells and 2017 Basic Hydrogen Strategy
The Strategic Roadmap for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells defines 1) new targets on the specification of basic technologies and the breakdown of costs, 2) necessary measures for achieving these goals; and 3) that Japan will convene a working group consisting of experts to review the status of implementation in each area stipulated by the roadmap.
Target to increase number of FCVs in Japan to 40,000 units by 2020
Aim to develop commercial-scale supply chains by 'around' 2030 to procure 300,000 tons of hydrogen annually and reduce the cost of hydrogen to 30 yen/NM3
Target 26% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 (from 2013 levels)
