Chevron, Iwatani Announce Agreement to Build 30 Hydrogen Fueling Stations in California
Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (Chevron), a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX), and Iwatani Corporation of America (ICA), a wholly owned subsidiary company of Iwatani Corporation (TYO: 8088), today announced an agreement to co-develop and construct 30 hydrogen fueling sites in California by 2026.
As part of the agreement, Chevron plans to fund construction of the sites, which are expected to be located at Chevron-branded retail locations across the state. The stations will initially fuel light-duty vehicles while retaining the flexibility to service heavy-duty vehicles over the long term. Iwatani will operate and maintain the hydrogen fueling sites and provide hydrogen supply and transportation logistics services. Chevron plans to supply a portion of the fueling sites with excess hydrogen production capacity at its Richmond Refinery and future hydrogen production from pilot projects in Northern California.

How Clean Is Hydrogen? Platts, Others Seek to Give Fuel a Score
S&P Global Platts, the energy and commodities pricing service, has teamed up with a national lab and a nonprofit research group to create a tool for measuring the carbon intensity of different sources of hydrogen, showing the global-warming impact of each. The tool, a version of which could be ready in 18 months, won’t just look at how the hydrogen is made — whether it’s stripped from water or or natural gas, and which energy source is used to power its production. Instead, it will evaluate individual hydrogen production plants, giving each facility a score it can show to customers and investors. That’s the plan, at least, for what participants are calling the Open Hydrogen Initiative, or OHI.
Schumer In Direct Letter To U.S. Secretary Of Energy Says Hydrogen Production And Research Facilities From WNY, Rochester, & The Capital Region To Long Island Are Prime To Jolt U.S. Global Clean Energy Leadership
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer today launched a major push to make New York State home to the nation’s first Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub created by the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Law. In a direct letter to U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm, Schumer explained how New York is already a national leader in hydrogen energy production and research, with North America’s largest green hydrogen production facility currently being constructed in Western New York by Plug Power. Schumer said that if selected for federal investment, the Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub would mean thousands more clean energy jobs in New York and major federal investment to cement New York as a leader in the fight against climate change and the future of carbon free energy production.
California's Dream of a Carbon Neutral Future
The final pillar necessary in creating a hydrogen-powered future is preparing a workforce ready to maintain this new sector. And it seems we’re on track here as well. “Cal State LA has been educating students in hydrogen technologies and providing hands-on training at its Hydrogen Research and Fueling Facility for several years,” says David Blekhman, Ph.D., Technical Director for the facility. He added that student interest has increased in the past six months “as investment in hydrogen infrastructure has been gaining momentum.” In addition to the exciting work being done at CSULA, programs are also available at other California State campuses and through both the UC and community college systems.

DOE Establishes Bipartisan Infrastructure Law's $9.5 Billion Clean Hydrogen Initiatives
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced two Requests for Information (RFI) to collect feedback from stakeholders to inform the implementation and design of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s Regional Hydrogen Hub and the Electrolysis and Clean Hydrogen Manufacturing and Recycling Programs. This request will help accelerate progress, reduce technology cost, and ramp up the use of hydrogen as a clean energy carrier. Clean hydrogen is crucial to DOE’s strategy for achieving President Biden’s goal of a 100% clean electrical grid by 2035 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
China: Nation powers ahead with hydrogen use at Games
Recognizing the importance of the gas as a low-carbon energy source and global growth industry, China's 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25) names hydrogen as one of six industries of the future. The government is also expected to launch a comprehensive national hydrogen development plan soon. The plan will include a full ecosystem for a hydrogen economy, ranging from a strong manufacturing base for electrolyzers to the various downstream uses of "green" hydrogen.

Heliogen Awarded Exclusive Right to Lease Brenda Solar Energy Zone for Green Hydrogen Production
Heliogen intends to develop a green hydrogen facility on the Brenda site, capable of producing approximately 20,000 metric tonnes of hydrogen per year. The Brenda SEZ is situated on 3,343 acres of land in La Paz County, Arizona on the California border. The site has direct access to Interstate 10 for distribution of hydrogen to nearby natural gas pipelines for blending and transport, as well as to the Phoenix metropolitan area and the Port of Los Angeles for domestic and international shipping.
