Infrastructure and Vehicles Deployment

In 2018, the CHBC formed the Infrastructure and Vehicle Deployment Sector Action Group to provide a broader, industry voice for fueling station deployment, including opportunities to bridge functionality across light duty vehicle fueling, Power-to-Gas, and other market sectors. The CHBC will continue to work with the California Fuel Cell Partnership on infrastructure development and vehicle deployment through this SAG.

The SAG is led by Co-Chairs Robert Bienenfeld, Honda Motor Company and Steve Ellis, Honda Motor Company.

The SAG identified the following activities for 2019:

Executive/Agency/Regulatory

  1. Governor’s budget rollout to be finalized in December, would need to engage now to be considered

Legislative

  1. Restore/Expand Hydrogen Station Funding ~$92M or more if inclusive of MD and HD infrastructure development
  2. Remove cap on CEC’s annual station funding if increase in CEC funding is pursued
