Our Mission

The California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) is comprised of over 100 companies and agencies involved in the business of hydrogen. Our mission is to advance the commercialization of hydrogen in the energy sector, including transportation, goods movement, and stationary power systems to reduce emissions and dependence on oil.

Our Vision

The vision of the California Hydrogen Business Council is to reinforce California’s position as the most advanced clean energy state in the nation, expanding the sustainable use of its precious natural and renewable resources and providing clean air to its citizens, by adopting hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in transportation, power and goods movement markets.

By 2020, the CHBC will seek to quantifiably reduce air and greenhouse gas emissions by contributing to the goals of bringing 20,000 FCEVs on the road in California; featuring 100 operating public fueling stations; putting several hydrogen medium and heavy duty fleet operations in place; and demonstrating progress toward 2025 public transit goals of 150 FCEBs on the road with fueling stations, have at least 5 transit agencies operating more than 20 FCEB with one fueling station each in California; at least one transit agency with more than 50 FCEB in service, more than 25 additional transit agencies informed of FCEB progress, performance, cost, and infrastructure five operating Power-to-Gas projects; and 50% of hydrogen for transportation from renewable sources.

The CHBC is uniquely qualified to meet those goals because it bridges energy silos and industry sectors that are commonly viewed individually. As such, it is a unique advocate, convener, collaborator and communicator for cross sector market interests.

Matthew Klippenstein, a renewable energy consultant, says that batteries and hydrogen fuel cells are widely seen as competitors, but nature can explain why there's plenty of room for both in the fleets of tomorrow. https://t.co/5YoWKMkFwx #driveH2 #fuelcell #BEV #EV @CaFCP

Diesel is responsible for 33% of the emissions that cause smog in California.
@NancySkinnerCA’s bill would phase out diesel trucks by requiring:
40% reduction in diesel emissions by 2030
80% reduction by 2050

Impressive: Korea to shift all commercial vehicles to fuel cell energy by 2035.

This is a clear commitment to reduce local emissions completely, to open the potential for full GHG emission reduction and also for much less noise in urban seetings.

Production of green #hydrogen delivered as #renewablegas from #wind and #solar electricity is seen as a potential game-changer for the transition to a 100% #renewable #energy system. https://t.co/WTRpoXQ8m6 @EURACTIV https://t.co/Eqp8g5EXLH
