    • As of 2015, Germany has 21 publicly available hydrogen fuel cell stations and plans to have 400 stations by 2023.
    • There are approximately 80 hydrogen fueling stations in Japan, with the target to have 320 stations by 2025.
    • As of 2014, South Korea has 11 hydrogen stations in operation and plan to build 10 more hydrogen stations by 2020.
    • France launched Mobilité Hydrogène France, an initiative to research and develop a country-wide hydrogen infrastructure.
