SEOUL, Aug. 31 (Korea Bizwire) — Self-charging of hydrogen-powered vehicles will become possible at Incheon International Airport starting from Tuesday.
The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy announced that it had launched a hydrogen vehicle self-serve demonstration for the general public at the hydrogen charging station located in the airport’s Terminal 2 run by hydrogen supplier Hynet.
Self-charging will be possible at a 300 to 400 won discounted rate per kilogram.
Under current laws, hydrogen vehicles must be charged by a charging station employee. This demonstration is a safety test to judge if the current regulations can be changed.
Once self-charging is allowed, the operating hours of charging stations can be extended.
Furthermore, it would lead to a reduction in the price of hydrogen, thereby improving charging convenience for drivers and reducing operating expenses.
