Ramos Oil Station Offers Conventional Fuels Too
The California Energy Commission and California Fuel Cell Partnership are staging a ribbon-cutting for a Linde technology hydrogen fueling station hosted by Ramos Oil. The event takes place in West Sacramento on Wednesday morning, December 10.
The Ramos Oil outlet “becomes the first Northern California hydrogen refueling station offering traditional and other alternative fuels,” CEC says. It is the tenth hydrogen fueling station in California.
“This station,” CEC adds, “is the first in the U.S. to use Linde’s advanced technology.”
50 Hydrogen Stations in California by 2016
The Wednesday event, which is to commence promptly at 9:30am, CEC says, will include tours of the station and test drives in fuel cell electric vehicles from Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes, Nissan and Toyota. Toyota is to bring a prototype of the new Mirai it plans to release late next year (F&F, November 17).
By 2016, CEC says, more than 50 hydrogen stations will be open across the state, most going into existing gas stations. “By about 2021, nearly 100 stations are expected to open in support of the State of California’s aim to have 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025.”
