Hey gang, CNGchat needs your help!

For over a decade we have enjoyed providing this little corner of the Internet for folks to discuss all things natural gas vehicles. It is the largest forum of its kind: with some 70,000 posts on over 11,000 topics. But with continued low gasoline & diesel prices and strong automaker support for electric vehicles, consumer interest in CNG has dropped considerably, and with it has visitor traffic here. As a result, Google ad revenues no longer cover hosting fees.

If you find CNGchat to be a useful resource then please consider making a modest donation to support keeping this remarkable pool of knowledge available to the alternative fuels community. Thanks!

  • Retail Hydrogen Stations

    City of Lawndale CA- which is only two square miles in area - welcomed the nation s 28th retail hydrogen station for fuel cell electric (FEV) vehicles June 27, 2017.

    More than $17 million was approved for nine new hydrogen stations that will expand the refueling infrastructure network in California. FirstElement Fuel Inc. will develop eight hydrogen refueling stations. Five of those will be located in Southern California in Huntington Beach, Irvine, San Diego, Santa Monica and Sherman Oaks. The remaining three will be in the Bay Area in Campbell, Oakland and Sunnyvale. Air Liquide Advanced Technologies U.S. LLC received funds for a refueling station in Santa Nella that will connect the Southern California and the Bay Area stations.

    Joseph Bebon for NGTNews November 30, 2017 - Toyota Motor North America Inc. has announced plans to build what it claims will be world s first megawatt-scale carbonate fuel cell power generation plant with a hydrogen fueling station to support its operations at the Port of Long Beach, Calif. Announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the Tri-Gen facility will use bio-waste sourced from California agricultural waste to generate water, electricity and hydrogen. It will come online in 2020.

    When it comes online in 2020, Tri-Gen will generate approximately 2.35 MW of electricity and 1.2 tons of hydrogen per day, enough to power the equivalent of about 2,350 average-sized homes and meet the daily driving needs of nearly 1,500 vehicles, according to Toyota.

    Tri-Gen has been developed by FuelCell Energy with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy, California Air Resources Board, South Coast Air Quality Management District, Orange County Sanitation District, and University of California at Irvine, whose research helped develop the core technology.

    Doug Murtha, group vice president of strategic planning, says Tri-Gen is a major step forward for sustainable mobility and a key accomplishment of our 2050 Environmental Challenge to achieve net zero CO2 emissions from our operations. 31 retail hydrogen stations are now open for business in California, and Toyota continues to partner with a broad range of companies to develop new stations.

      NGVJournal 27 Feb 2018 - In Germany, 24 public H2 refueling stations have gone into operation in 2017, turning the German public hydrogen refueling infrastructure into the second largest globally with 45 public stations, ahead of the United States (40 stations) and only surpassed by Japan with 91 public H2 stations. Moreover, a total of 64 stations were opened worldwide in the past year. When looking at the number of hydrogen refueling stations per inhabitant, Germany ranks fourth behind Denmark, Norway, and Japan, closely followed by Austria. These results are reported in the 10th annual assessment by H2stations.org who also reports that 139 hydrogen stations are currently in operation in Europe, 118 in Asia, 68 in North America, one each in South America, Australia, and Dubai.

      On a European level, national networks are complemented by seamless hydrogen corridors from Norway to northern Italy and from western Switzerland to Vienna, which had already formed last year. These have been consolidated by further 36 publicly accessible hydrogen stations.

        Why? We couldn't even make a go of it with CNG passenger cars let alone something as stupid as Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicles. BEV's will knock these off quickly as Fuel Cell vehicles are just a BEV with a Fuel Cell "range extender". No point in them.

          The H2 at the stations I am familiar with is derived from NG as feed stock using the Steam Reform method , so IMO, the vehicles are actually powered by NG..
