South Korea to build hybrid energy stations

SK Energy announced that it is in full swing to cooperate with Doosan Fuel Cell to establish the on-site hybrid energy stations that utilize fuel cells (Tri-gen) which can generate hydrogen, energy, and heat simultaneously, generating hydrogen and directly using it for charging.

A hydrogen charging station can generate approximately 1 ton of hydrogen per day, which is enough to recharge 200 hydrogen passenger cars or 30 hydrogen-powered trucks.

At the same time, it is possible to charge EVs using the energy generated from Tri-gen, which opens the possibility of establishing hybrid charging stations once the applicable laws, such as the Electric Utility Act, etc., are amended.

Both companies are to cooperate step by step to expand hydrogen charging stations by 2026.
