The Berkeley hydrogen station is open for business! It is the fourth Shell hydrogen station to open in the Bay Area.
The Berkeley station, developed by Shell, will be open 24 hours a day and is located at 1250 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94702.
Like the other Shell stations, the Berkeley hydrogen station will have larger capacity and more fueling positions to meet the needs of the growing fuel cell passenger car market in the Bay Area. The station’s capacity is 560 kilograms and has two fueling nozzles at H70 pressure.
With two fueling nozzles, two cars will be able to fuel simultaneously, increasing the number of vehicles served in a shorter time.
The station—and the three Shell San Francisco stations—offers 100% renewable hydrogen from biogas. California requires that at least 33% of hydrogen fuel come from renewable sources. For stations that qualify for the Low Carbon Fuel Standard ZEV infrastructure credit, that amount increases to 40%.

CaFCP has a mobile-friendly website, Station Operational Status System (SOSS), that shows station availability and provides other station information, including hours of operation, address, H2 station operator and developer, etc.: http://m.cafcp.org.
