Purpose: In line with the global transition to a hydrogen society, Korea is accelerating the vitalization of the hydrogen economy through relevant plans and strategies. In order to revitalize the hydrogen economy, it is necessary to add hydrogen-related matters to the National Infrastructure Protection Plan(NIPP) and to pro-mote continuous stability for the national-level hydrogen infrastructure. This study aims to present direction from a long-term perspective for the addition of NIPP to hydrogen infrastructure. Method: This study reviews and recognizes the importance of efficient construction strategies for hydrogen society. As an example, we analyze the case of Japan, which established a basic plan for hydrogen society be-fore Korea. The factors for realizing the plan were analyzed by categorizing the contents into flexibility, adap-tability, and reliability. Results: We were able to find some implications through the case study. First, It is important to seek inter-national cooperation for hydrogen supply and to respond flexibly to ensure that the plan is not disrupted in order to realize a hydrogen society and to secure safety. Second, it is necessary to regularly revise and imple-ment the roadmap over time so that the plan can adapt well to time. Thirdly, In order to reinforce the credibili-ty of the plan, a risk communication plan to enhance Local Acceptance should be devised. Conclusion: Korea cannot achieve empirical results simply by reducing carbon emissions and building an eco-friendly hydrogen society. It is important to discover demand and monitor hydrogen-related infrastructure integrally with potential stakeholders. In addition, social acceptance, including the central government, local governments, and private businesses, is essential to improve the public s awareness and understanding of hy-drogen society and to strategically rearrange hydrogen infrastructure. The establishment of the NIPP with the addition of hydrogen social infrastructure will contribute to raising national interest and increasing public con-fidence in hydrogen safety.
