Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) have zero tailpipe emissions, fast refueling time, long driving range and could be competitively priced with high volume sales. However, for this market to develop, it is considered essential to have an adequate infrastructure in place first. In this session we look at refueling infrastructure rollout strategies for FCVs in California. Thinking has evolved from the early “Hydrogen Highway” concept to a more sophisticated “Cluster Strategy” wherein infrastructure placement is coordinated with vehicle sales to minimize infrastructure cost and provide adequate accessibility to early adopters. We will explore key questions for FCV rollout: How many stations are needed? Where should they be placed? What support is needed to build a business case for a new infrastructure?
1. Infrastructure challenges/opportunities.
2. What do we really need to create a market and is there a business case for infrastructure?
3. What policies are likely to influence infrastructure deployment?
