  • 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.
