AC Transit has invested the past two decades in building the most comprehensive fuel cell electric bus demonstration program in the United States, featuring a growing fleet of zero-emission buses, on-site hydrogen production and fueling, on-site fleet maintenance and ongoing independent performance evaluation of the fuel cell bus fleet.
On this National Hydrogen Day, we’re introducing you to a few of the people who work behind the scenes, day in and day out. They, and thousands of people like them around the world, help make fuel cell electric vehicles and hydrogen stations a reality.
The California Air Resources Board released its 2018 Annual Evaluation of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Deployment and Hydrogen Fuel Station Network Development that documents the growth in hydrogen stations and FCEVs over the past year. On August 30 CaFCP hosted a webinar about the report.
FROM THE AIR PRODUCTS TEAM:
The Newport Beach hydrogen station, operated by Shell, is open for business! It is the 35th retail hydrogen station in California and located in Orange County.
The hydrogen station first opened in 2012 and was recently upgraded to accommodate retail sales.
The Ontario hydrogen station is open for business! It is the 34th retail hydrogen station in California and located at the western end of the Inland Empire.
The Ontario station provides 100% renewable hydrogen to FCEV drivers and is the first station in Southern California to provide all major alternative transportation fuels; it also offers biofuel, CNG, and plug-in electric charging.
At the California Fuel Cell Partnership public meeting in October, Shell was invited to become a member of CaFCP’s executive board. Shell is the first energy company to join the board. Shell and its affiliates within the Shell Group of Companies are taking part in various initiatives to encourage the adoption of hydrogen as a transport fuel.
