We are pleased to announce that the Torrance Shell hydrogen station has been upgraded and is now open to the public as a retail station. It is the 30th retail hydrogen station in California. It is the only hydrogen station in the U.S., and one of the few in the world, to be fed by a hydrogen pipeline. The upgrade was funded by the South Coast Air Quality Management District and upgrade activities undertaken by station operator Shell.
California recently opened its 29th hydrogen station in California. By the end of the year, we’ll see more stations online, and even more in 2018.
More stations means more fuel cell electric cars. And more cars means more hydrogen being dispensed, especially renewable hydrogen.
In California, hydrogen is on a renewable pathway, just like electricity. At least 33% of the hydrogen sold today at these stations must be renewable.
The California Fuel Cell Partnership is pleased to welcome California’s 29th retail hydrogen station in San Ramon.
Built by The Linde Group, this new station is their third retail hydrogen station in California. Linde developed California’s first retail station in West Sacramento and also operates one in San Juan Capistrano.
Today, the Golden State welcomes its 28th retail hydrogen station in the City of Lawndale. Like most of California’s retail hydrogen stations, the Lawndale station is open 24 hours.
The Energy Commission released a Notice of Proposed Awards for 16 additional hydrogen stations to continue expanding the hydrogen station network in California. Added to the retail hydrogen stations already open and under construction, California will have more than 60 stations statewide by 2020 (or sooner.)
