Why Join?

CHBC connects you to other leaders and new customers in the hydrogen energy and fuel cell community

CHBC members include fuel cell and vehicle manufacturer, hydrogen production, delivery and storage companies, universities and national labs, distributors, and many other leaders in the hydrogen business community. CHBC membership is the easiest way to get connected to the many different segments of the hydrogen energy industry in California. Through Summits, workshops, VIP luncheons, special meetings or industry tours, the CHBC brings industry representatives, decision makers, and stakeholders together to exchange information, create business connections and work to advance the commercialization of fuel cell and hydrogen energy technology.

Hydrogen and fuel cells need an advocate in Sacramento

The CHBC provides a powerful industry voice advocating for inclusion of fuel cells and hydrogen energy in energy policy discussions in California, and the role of hydrogen as a clean and reliable form of energy for transportation, energy storage, and backup power.

Your membership will ensure that your business—and your industry—have a strong voice in these discussions via our Sector Action Groups (SAGs). Members are kept up to date on legislation and regulations that may affect their business. VIP luncheons allow you to establish relations with decision makers in California.

 

CHBC educates customers, policy makers, and the public

The CHBC works to educate policymakers, investors, customers, and other stakeholders in the facts related to hydrogen energy. We are continuing to develop information resources that are advancing the level of knowledge and interest in hydrogen and fuel cells. As a member, you can use these educational resources to help build demand for your products.
