2. CaFCP’s 2030 Vision and Strategies
In July, CaFCP released The California Fuel Cell Revolution, the vision and strategies to transition California’s early-market launch success into a self-sustaining market. Executive Board members will identify consensus priorities and initiate CaFCP member-led teams to create a three-year plan for CaFCP to achieve the first milestones in the 2030 vision of 1,000 stations and 1 million vehicles.

10:00am–10:30am BREAK

3. Activating the Market
The right mix of a supportive policy environment and private investment can lead to scale, cost reductions, and a self-sustaining market. Speakers will highlight actions to build market confidence and expand private investments for large-scale deployment, and the Board will determine priorities and milestones for the CaFCP planning team going forward.


12:00pm–1:00pm LUNCH

4. Large-scale Hydrogen Production
The Revolution outlines the need to have hydrogen infrastructure lead vehicle deployment, including dedicated hydrogen production for transportation use. Market-based mechanisms that reward renewable hydrogen production and enable grid and utility asset integration can hasten scale and increase value to transportation and energy markets. As speakers identify opportunities and challenges the Board will provide guidance on CaFCP priorities and action.


2:00pm–3:00pm 5. Hydrogen Network Buildout
The timing, placement and capabilities of hydrogen stations for light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicles is essential to build and maintain consumer demand. Developers and funders need to create a compelling value proposition to buyers while building out the network as efficiently and effectively as possible. Speakers will talk about lessons learned from the current network and what more is needed to create a compelling value proposition while achieving the milestones and goals found in the Revolution document.

3:00pm–3:30pm BREAK
CaFCP Executive Board members

6. Three-Year CaFCP Program Plan
Since its inception in 1999, CaFCP has worked on an annual program plan and budget. The Steering Team proposes moving to a three-year plan to better accomplish the 2030 vision. The Board will discuss and decide the merits of a three-year program plan and budget to achieve the first milestones of the 2030 vision.
