Workshop December 7, Proposals Due January 17
The California Energy Commission has floated a new hydrogen fuel infrastructure solicitation, combining this year’s and last’s, with total potential funding of $28.59 million. Bids are requested via a new program opportunity notice, PON-12-606.
CEC wants to “expand the network of publicly accessible hydrogen fueling stations to serve the current population of fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) and to accommodate the planned large-scale roll-out of FCVs commencing in 2015.
“This network will support alternative transportation fuel and vehicle technology goals of the State of California, such as the Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) Program, which requires 14% of certain auto manufacturers’ model year-2015 fleets to be zero‐emission vehicles,” CEC says, “and the Low Carbon Fuel Standard, which is designed to reduce the carbon intensity of transportation fuels by 10% by 2020.”
CEC will pay up to 65% of total project cost or $1.5 million, whichever is less, or up to $3 million for projects using renewable sources.
The agency will host a pre-application workshop in connection with PON-12-606 in Sacramento (accessible via the Internet) on December 7.
Proposals are due January 17.
