At the end of 2021, a total of 685 hydrogen petrol stations were in operation worldwide. For 252 more gas station locations already exist concrete planning. Remarkable are the developments in Spain and New Zealand, where there were many new concrete location planning for the first time. Newly added are Hungary and Slovenia, where a hydrogen petrol station was operating in operation. This can now be refueling hydrogen already in 33 countries.

Korea has recorded most commissioning in 2021 with 36 new petrol stations and builds its infrastructure for all fuel cell vehicles.
Interactive location cards and individual evaluations
The website H2Stations.Org offers a comprehensive overview of all hydrogen petrol stations worldwide, both in operation, planned and dismissed, and also provides interactive maps. Data on the development of hydrogen infrastructure and matching statistics complete the information offer.
The underlying database has been maintained since 2005 and continuously updated. It contains detailed information about almost 1500 gas stations worldwide. “Despite the rising care effort, we provide the basic data on H2Stations.org is still available for private use for free, “says LBS managing director DR. Uwe Albrecht. “For professional use, we license the data including further detailed information on technologies and markets and create regular reports on new developments as well as individual evaluations for our customers.”
