2018 in Review
2018 was a year of change and growth in the hydrogen and fuel cell world. We saw a significant increase in activity across the globe last year and we wanted to share the top stories with you.
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.
Questions about Revolution Projections
If the 2030 goal is 1,000,000 FCEVs and 1,000 stations, how many vehicles to you expect each station to handle?
The California Air Resources Board and the California Energy Commission released the Joint Agency Staff Report on Assembly Bill 8: 2017 Annual Assessment of Time and Cost Needed to Attain 100 Hydrogen Refueling Stations in California that follows two previously published joint reports in accordance with Assembly Bill 8 (AB 8) that was signed into law in 2013.
Thanksgiving will soon be upon us, marking the launch of the holiday season. It also causes us to reflect on our accomplishments, individual and collective, personal and professional.
At the Fuel Cell Partnership, we wanted to express our thanks to the many individuals, organizations, and accomplishments in the hydrogen and fuel cell world that we have encountered over the past year.
Below is the list that we have compiled. We apologize for anyone or anything we’ve forgotten – so much has happened in 2017!
California Hydrogen Infrastructure Tool (CHIT) 2017 Release Update and Grant Funding Opportunity Implementation Webinar, November 14
California Air Resources Board staff will host a technical discussion in Sacramento to review the most recent updates to the California Hydrogen Infrastructure Tool. CHIT is built in the ArcGIS environment to perform geographically-detailed assessments of need for new hydrogen fueling infrastructure to support the deployment of fuel cell electric vehicles. CARB will also discuss methods by which information from the tool was integrated into Coverage, Capacity, and Market Viability evaluations of station applications in response to the California Energy Commission’s GFO15-605. The goal is to provide stakeholders with a comprehensive understanding of the new features of the tool, the analyses performed by CARB using the tool, and use of the tool’s key information outputs in funding programs.
Entering its third year, National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day has expanded in the number of events and increased activity on social media, especially from passenger car drivers. And many supporters have pushed beyond the actual day, October 8, to host events or make announcements in the days that followed.
