Seven Stations Planned Using $16.36 Million from California Agency

Toyota said Monday that it’s looking forward to establishing seven retail fueling stations for hydrogen with Shell behind $16,362,500 in funding from the California Energy Commission.

This Shell station in Berkeley is one of seven that could host retail hydrogen fueling outlets in partnership with Toyota.

The NOPA/notice of proposed award “marks an important step forward in California’s aspiration for broader deployment of low-carbon fuels and vehicle technologies, via its CEC’s Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program,” states a Toyota release.

The CEC document names Equilon Enterprises LLC (dba Shell Oil Products) for grants of $2,337,500 for each of seven hydrogen fueling outlets: in San Francisco (three), Berkeley, Walnut Creek, Sacramento and Citrus Heights.

‘One Step Closer’

“The team of Toyota and Shell will bring us one step closer to a hydrogen society,” Toyota advanced technology vehicle senior manager Craig Scott said in a release.

“This kind of collaboration between government and industry is central to making hydrogen a reality,” Shell hydrogen GM Oliver Bishop says in the Toyota release.
