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.
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.
