It is very important to secure hydrogen acceptability to achieve the hydrogen economy. This study empirically analyzed the factors affecting acceptance by using the results of a questionnaire administered to residents of Jeonju-Wanju Hydrogen Demonstration City. The results indicated that the safety of hydrogen infrastructure and local industry and economic growth positively affected acceptance. In particular, local industry and economic growth were more effective in improving resident acceptance. As policy factors, support for government policies and disclosure of information on projects were also positive factors. As perceptual factors, the higher interest in hydrogen and less safety concerns positively affected acceptability. Therefore, as far as hydrogen safety is concerned, it seems necessary to support local industry development to improve acceptability, disclose information related to industrial development, and introduce targeted experience programs.
