The California Fuel Cell Partnership has announced the opening of the state’s 29th retail hydrogen station in San Ramon.

Built by The Linde Group, the new station is its third retail hydrogen station in Calfornia. Linde developed California’s first retail station in West Sacramento and also operates one in San Juan Capistrano.

Back in August 2014, The California Energy Commission (CEC) awarded $4.3m to Linde North America to construct retail hydrogen fuelling stations at Oakland International Airport and San Ramon back in August 2014. The award was part of CEC’s $46.6m funding programme committed to expand the retail hydrogen fuelling infrastructure within the state.

The grants made through CEC’s Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program, were made to eight applicants and will add 13 new hydrogen fuelling locations in Northern California and 15 in Southern California, strategically located to create a refueling network along major corridors and in regional centers.

Speaking in 2014, Janea A. Scott, Energy Commissioner, said, “Transitioning to low and zero emission vehicles is critical to meeting air quality goals and to reducing emissions that lead to climate change. With this funding, California will accelerate the construction of a reliable and affordable refuelling infrastructure to support the commercial market launch of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.”
