Hydrogen Hubs Announcement

Last week, we welcomed the announcement by President Biden and Secretary Granholm of the hydrogen hubs that were selected to help accelerate the hydrogen economy in the United States. 

What began with more than 70 applicants ended with seven hubs selected to begin negotiations for $7 billion in funding. Each is focused on hydrogen production that is uniquely suited to their region and industries and sectors that will benefit from renewable, zero and low-carbon hydrogen.

California Fuel Cell Partnership becomes a national organization: the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Partnership

  • Hydrogen Fuel Cell Partnership (HFCP) launches national hydrogen mobility strategy that focuses on building a hydrogen fueling network across the U.S. for heavy-duty trucks, enabling links between ports, hydrogen hubs and more
  • HFCP evolution to a national nonprofit reflects the growth of hydrogen mobility in California and the acceleration of hydrogen in the United States and across the world

California Can Achieve World’s First Sustainable Hydrogen Fueling Network

  • Analysis by the California Air Resources Board shows that the hydrogen fueling network for passenger cars can be self-sufficient by 2030 with additional public co-funding
  • Report finds that private industry investment will increase to 90 percent near the end of the decade

Sacramento, California - The California Air Resources Board today released an analysis of the California hydrogen fueling network for passenger cars and found that, with the right funding, the network could be self-sufficient by 2030. The report, “Hydrogen Station Network Self Sufficiency Analysis” finds that “hydrogen fueling network self-sufficiency can likely be achieved within the decade with additional State support beyond AB 8.”

Zero Emission Bus Rollouts: 4 Factors to Ensure Success As You Scale

By Tim Sasseen, Ballard Power Systems

Are you a transit fleet operator planning to convert to zero-emission buses in the coming years? Then this is the article for you.

You’ll learn why preparing a thorough transition plan early in the process is so essential to scaling your zero-emission fleet successfully—and why without such a plan, you’re likely to encounter roadblocks that are, largely, preventable. We’ll also share some key findings of other fleet operators as they developed their own plans to transition from diesel power to zero-emission buses (ZEBs).
