The California Energy Commission has identified proposed awardees for a recent solicitation that sought partners for the development of hydrogen refueling infrastructure for transportation applications.
Funds for the proposed awardees will be granted through the state's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program. All of the proposed awards – which will support public-access hydrogen refueling – have a funds-matching component.
Linde LLC has been recommended to receive funds for three projects: a trio of hydrogen stations in Mountain View, San Mateo and Cupertino. Air Products and Chemicals Inc. has also been chosen for two proposed awards that would support two separate hydrogen refueling networks – one in Calabasas, Woodland Hills and Agoura Hills, and another in Mission Viejo and Laguna Hills.
Also, Hydrogen Frontier Inc. is in line to receive $3 million for its Hyundai Hydrogen Generation and Fueling Facility in Chino, and Air Liquide Industrial U.S. LP has been recommended for $1.5 million to support overall development of the state's hydrogen refueling infrastructure as a part of the California Fuel-Cell Vehicle Initiative.
