California To Pay $100M For Hydrogen Vehicle Infrastructure

Posted on December 9, 2013

TORRANCE, Calif. — The California Energy Commission is seeking proposals to spend $100 million starting in 2015 to build out fueling stations and other infrastructure to support hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles.

The commission released a Program Opportunity Notice on Nov. 22 authorizing spending of up to $20 million annually to implement requirements signed into law in 2007.

Assembly Bill 118 created the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program that was renewed earlier this year. Assembly Bill 8 allocated funding.

The program provides funding for projects that expand hydrogen fueling infrastructure, including building fueling stations; improve alternative vehicle technologies; retrofit medium- and heavy-duty vehicle technologies; and expand the alternative fueling infrastructure available to existing fleets, public transit, and transportation corridors, according to the notice.
