Los Angeles Event for Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Solutions
As a New Report on Fuel Station Financing Is Released

The California Hydrogen Business Council will host a one-day workshop on available hydrogen and fuel cell solutions to meet the emissions reduction goals of ports on November 10.

CHBClogoThe gathering at the Banning’s Landing Community Center at the Port of Los Angeles is to feature presentations from port authority officials, terminal operators, trucking companies, and hydrogen and fuel cell technology providers. It will include tabletop exhibits.

Separately, CHBC has released its official report on the two-day Financing the 101st Station workshop held this past June in Pasadena. CHBC convened 28 experts who discussed their experiences related to financing, fueling station models and automotive plans for FCEVs – fuel cell electric vehicles.


‘The Market Has to Evolve’

“One of the clearest results of the workshop is that the market has to evolve more for private financing to kick in and for public funding in California to end,” CHBC executive director Jeff Serfass said in a release.

“Only with a supportive national policy for vehicle deployment and infrastructure, will the nation will see the benefits of the billions of dollars invested by private industry,” Serfass said.

CHBC Fall Meeting in Sacramento Next Month

“We can’t expect each state to provide the kind of funding being applied in California, and there is a limited future for FCEVs in the U.S. if they are sold only in California.”

“Eventually,” states a CHBC report summary, “station economics will become sufficiently interesting to attract private capital, but that will take a number of years, even in California.”

CHBC’s annual fall California Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Summit will take place October 5-6 in Sacramento California. The fall CHBC Summit will be preceded by a CHBC member day, with committee and sector action group meetings on October 4.
