15 Jan 2013

JX Nippon Oil & Energy CorporationThe Nikkei reports that JX Nippon Oil & Energy Corp. plans to open 40 hydrogen refuelling stations by 2015, when automakers will launch commercial fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). In January 2011, thirteen automakers and energy companies signed up to a target of 100 hydrogen refuelling stations in Japan by 2015.

JX Energy has a 30% share in Japan's gasoline station market and intends to lead in infrastructure for FCEV. It currently operates three of Japan’s ten demonstration hydrogen stations. In February, it will open two hydrogen refuelling facilities at existing gas stations. These test sites will be used to determine efficient operation methods.
