CaFCP Celebrates 20 Years of Collaboration

On April 22, 1999, stakeholders representing automakers, government and private industry launched the California Fuel Cell Partnership, with the goal of furthering development of fuel cell electric vehicle technology and hydrogen fueling infrastructure.

Twenty years later, our collaboration has grown to include local, state and federal government agencies, automakers, fuel cell manufacturers, hydrogen station developers and operators, hydrogen producers, transit agencies, universities and others. We work together to further the commercialization of fuel cell cars, buses and trucks, expand the hydrogen fueling network and increase the production of zero-carbon hydrogen.

Largest Bus Manufacturer Markets Fuel Cell Buses

Across the globe, we continue to see good news about fuel cell electric buses (FCEBs) in North America, China, Japan and Europe.

In California, we have 21 FCEBs in operation, more than 15 years of service and more than 2.5 million miles of experience; they perform as well as any conventional bus. In the next few years, California will more than double its fuel cell bus fleet, adding 32.
