The maximum
support amount per HRS for the capacity
of 50 to 100 Nm3/h is 0.16 million USD 20.  The current number of hydrogen refueling
stations in Japan as of March 2017 is 111. Japan targets to increase this
number to 260 and 320 by 2020 and 2025, respectively 21.

Japan’s EV cumulative sales target by 2020 and 2030 is 0.6
million and 1 million vehicles, respectively 22.
Government is targeting to reach to 40,000, 200,000, and 800,000 number of sold
FCVS by 2020, 2025, and 2030 respectively 21.

South Korea

The South
Korean government provides purchase subsidy up to 50% of price differential of
an ICEV and a FCV for FCV purchases. For instance, in 2015, 27.5 million KRW3 was paid
in purchase subsidy by the government considering the price of a FCV as 85 million KRW and the price of an ICEV as 30 million
KRW
23. South
Korea provides a purchase subsidy of KRW
14 million for BEVs and KRW 5 million for PHEVs 19.
Additionally, in Korea, there is also a
local purchase subsidy of KRW 3 million to KRW 12 million and tax reduction of
around KRW 4 million for BEVs, KRW 2.7 million for PHEVs 19.

The government of South Korea also supports the
construction of HRS with a subsidy of KRW
1.5 billion per station. The
government provides a support of 6
million KRW for stand and wall type slow chargers and 1 million KRW for mobile
type chargers 24.

In 2013, 2015 and 2017 there were 8, 10, and 11
HRSs in Korea 2325. The reason for the low number of FCVs and HRSs
in South Korea is the low
profitability of the stations, lack of HRS infrastructure in the early stages
of development and weak financial support 23.
