2017 California Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Summit September 25, 2017 Meeting n/a
H2 Heavy Duty Trucking Workshop at ACT Expo May 01, 2017 Meeting

The movement of freight and goods from the commercial ports to consumers represents a vital component of U.S. transportation infrastructure and the U.S. economy.  Seaports and distribution networks are economic drivers for jobs and development, and entry points for goods used throughout the country. They also cause significant local air and greenhouse gas emissions, and the medium/heavy duty truck fleets that move goods from ports cause problems well beyond the boundaries of the ports.  The environmental footprint is significant, both because of the volume of activity and because ports/distribution centers tend to be located in areas that already experience heavy automobile and truck traffic that create smog, particulate matter, and ozone pollution. Areas of California suffer environmental conditions that cause breathing and heart-related health problems and health costs.

Hydrogen-fueled fuel cell electric vehicles are entering the California automobile vehicle market, and hydrogen fuel cell fork lift trucks are commercially purchased by product distribution centers and factories today.  More than ever, it becomes noticeable that there are variety of potential hydrogen and fuel cell on and off road vehicles, including cargo handling equipment, that generate zero emissions energy at the point of use, and “well to wheels” zero emission energy when the hydrogen is produced from renewable sources, everyone’s long term goal.

  • Networking opportunities: Attendees will have opportunities to network during an evening reception that will be held at the Advanced Power and Energy Program hea

Who should attend?

The Conference is intended for professionals or students from industry, government or academia who are seeking to remain on the cutting edge of the clean energy paradigm shift. This includes stakeholders involved in:

  • The design, manufacture, or installation of electric power generators whether on a small distributed scale, or on a central scale.
  • Companies involved in consulting, planning, and development of clean energy utilization systems related to smart grids or microgrids.
  • Those involved in clean transportation including hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and how they are fueled, or plug-in electric vehicles.
  • Finally, the networking and information sharing will be of key interest to regulators, public policy professionals, researchers, technology developers, system integrators, investors, urban planners, and others who wish to understand the potential and challenges currently associated with the generation or utilization of clean energy.


ICEPAG (the International Colloquium on Environmentally Preferred Advanced Generation) is presented annually by the Advanced Power and Energy Program (APEP) at UC Irvine, as a “Global Summit Series” varying each year between Grid Evolution and Microgrid technologies:

  • ICEPAG 2017:  Grid Evolution Global Summit
  • ICEPAG 2018:  Microgrid Global Summit
  • ICEPAG 2019:  Grid Evolution Global Summit

As a Colloquium, the conference (1) combines a collection of tutorials and professional presentations, (2) provides extended question/answer periods to stimulate discussion, and (3) strikes a balance between the interests of industry, regulators, and academia; and students and practicing professionals.
