The California Fuel Cell Partnership is pleased to welcome California’s 29th retail hydrogen station in San Ramon.
Built by The Linde Group, this new station is their third retail hydrogen station in California. Linde developed California’s first retail station in West Sacramento and also operates one in San Juan Capistrano.
Today, the Golden State welcomes its 28th retail hydrogen station in the City of Lawndale. Like most of California’s retail hydrogen stations, the Lawndale station is open 24 hours.
The Energy Commission released a Notice of Proposed Awards for 16 additional hydrogen stations to continue expanding the hydrogen station network in California. Added to the retail hydrogen stations already open and under construction, California will have more than 60 stations statewide by 2020 (or sooner.)
On December 2, the California Air Resources Board held a public input workshop to discuss The Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Investment Commitment. Bill Elrick attended the meeting and presented a statement that the highest priority for hydrogen and FCEVs is to increase the number of stations in the state at a faster pace. In addition to CaFCP’s comments, other stakeholders highlighted the need for hydrogen investment.
