The maximum
support amount per hydrogen refueling station for 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.

The number of
FCVs in Japan as of March 2017 was 1800. Table

shows the BEV and PHEV stock in Japan from 2012 to 2016.

Japan’s BEV and PHEV 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 FCVS by 2020,
2025, and 2030 respectively 21.

1.1    
South Korea

The South
Korean government provides purchase subsidy up to 50% of price differential of
an ICEV and a FCV for FCV purchase. For instance in 2015, 27.5 million KRW is paid in
purchase subsidy by the government considering the price of a FCV as 85 million
KRW 1 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.
Government of South Korea also supports construction of HRS with a subsidy of
KRW 1.5 B per station. 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 low profitability of the stations, lack of HRS
infrastructure in the early stage and weak financial support 23.

2012 to 2016.

2015, respectively 23. Table 5 shows the BEV and PHEV stock in South
